Fall = Football

My cute little hubby loves competitive sports. He plays flag football here on campus. I thought I would share some of his cuteness : )

I thought he looked kinda funny in this one but he said
 "I am in correct throwing form" to me...I still think he looks funny ; )
Also, his left foot is completely missing! They keep the grass really tall on campus...

I liked this one because he seems genuinely happy to have that football but little does he know that fella in red is about to steal his flags : ( Plus check out that calf muscle!

This is what Jackson looks like while his dad plays football.

He is really determined to take this guy can see it in his face...he has determination eyebrows.

but he was too slow!

He is in "the zone"... and so handsome in this pic!

He coming for afraid!
I love this action shot! Get it Kyle! Interception?

Nope! So close. Get his flag instead!

Good times!

Here are a few things I have found on Pinterest and made:

Date/Weather Board
I whited out my address and phone number in the picture so crazies on the internet don't stalk me : )
I got my months and days from the Dollar Tree just to add a little color. I also added a little cork strip at the bottom so they could add their drawings.

I love this! I picked up the frame and mat at Michaels. I just used scrapbook paper for the background. I used my Cricut for the letters and we just use a dry erase marker to write messages back and forth to each other whenever we feel like it! It hangs in our bedroom.

I had had this frame for years sitting up in my closet. The fabric cost me a little over a dollar. I had to buy some sheet metal for about $5, magnets for about $2, and some spray adhesive for about $3. I love it because I can see all my makeup without having to dig around in a bag for it!

Here is one that I made my mother in law for her birthday:
I had gotten some keys several years ago from Goodwill, intending to make some really cute craft with them...didn't happen. Until now! We sanded down the key, painted it and hot glued magnets to the back. She can use this to put pictures up (those are magnets at the bottom).  I had gotten this frame at a garage sale a couple of years ago for a dollar. We spray painted the frame a nice cream color. I thought it was adorable! I think she did too.

My husband demands a new blog post...

So things have been pretty slow around these parts.

All the boys have started school. Tyler and Colby are using Switched on Schoolhouse, where all their schoolwork is on the computer. Tyler loves it, Colby not so much. Aidan and Jackson are doing Konos, which is a biblical unit study curriculum, First Language Lessons, Math-U-See, and Explode the Code. They  enjoy doing school. They are all taking some classes that the campus homeschool group offers. All four are taking Conversational Spanish, Beginning Public Speaking, and P.E. classes. Tyler, Colby, and Aidan are all taking Drama (Jackson is too young). Tyler and Colby are doing a Science Lab once a week. We are pretty busy during the weekday mornings.

Kyle just started a new job at a restaurant in Metairie. He should finish training this week. He says school is going well so far. He's also playing flag football here on campus.

I'm president of the Student Wives Fellowships this school year. Basically I am in charge of planning and organizing fellowships each month during the school year for the wives of the students here on campus.We just had our second one on the 15th, and about 40 ladies came. This time we learned about couponing. Next month we are doing a recipe trade/tasting. Everyone will prepare and bring their favorite appetizer or main dish and then bring a copy of that recipe to share. That way you can taste everything and only take home the recipes you actually liked. Then we are gonna play Bunco! I am also the teacher for the younger Beginning Public Speaking class that Aidan and Jackson are in, which is funny because I am absolutely terrified of public speaking, which I have to do for Student Wives Fellowships!

That is all for now...I'm gonna go take some pictures of the Pinterest things I have made and hopefully get some pics from our Student Wives Fellowship this past Thursday and share them with you ASAP!
