Does anyone else think this summer is flying by? Seriously.. someone stop time.

For those of you who were with me last summer, you may remember that my oldest son plays football in the youth league. You may also remember how absolutely horrible his team was last year. They didn’t win a single game all season and didn’t even score a touchdown until the final game. This year, because he’s 8, he moved up to the Freshman league. Thank God.

Since football season has started, that means lots and lots of practice. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, you’ll find me at the practice field. And it’s been hot. I’m talking high 90s here. And with practice lasting two hours a day, it’s pretty much miserable for everyone. BUT.. I love football. LOVE IT! So I will take the miserable heat any day to watch my little man play.

Besides football, we.. well.. mainly my husband.. has been revamping the backyard to prepare for our new pool. And let me stop right here by saying I’m a little irritated with the pool company and the county because we have been waiting on the permit f.o.r.e.v.e.r. We signed the paperwork during the first few days of June. They said 6 weeks for completion. And they haven’t even started.

Deep breath.

Okay.

Back to my husband. He’s been working his butt off. For reals. And just to show you a little progress, here is a photo of the deck. The top deck and stairway was existing, but he removed ALL of the wood (except the posts) and replaced it. Our old deck, which was less than 5 years old, was junk. But now, it’s wonderful! After that, he built the entire bottom deck. The whole thing. On his own. He did a fantastic job and it looks absolutely amazing. I’m so proud of him!

They’re supposed to break ground for the pool on Monday (finally). So by the time it’s completed, we’ll get a few weeks of swimming in. Thanks pool guy. Appreciate it.

I hope you all are having a fabulous summer! And someone.. please slow down summer.
