The last couple of weekends have been eventful. Two weeks ago my hubby got awarded a huge honor at his college. He was inducted into the Hall of Honor for his success as a pitcher on the baseball team. He’s only the second baseball player to earn this award in the college’s history.
Needless to say, he’s a stud. He went to McMurry University in Abilene, Texas and played all 4 years (rare to do in college). Athletics is such a huge part of our relationship. It’s initially how we met and were attracted to each other. Him, a baseball player, me, a soccer player. So, sitting in an athletic awards banquet listening to all his accomplishments on and off the field made me really proud.
It was fun to focus on him and get away as well. He had to give a short speech and did great.
The end of June was filled with party shenanigans for Maddox and watching World Cup games. This last weekend we had fun celebrating the 4th of July. Friday we went car shopping (test driving) ALL day. We almost walked out with a car, but we’re still looking. Saturday morning I took Beckham to Sprouts to pick up some produce…did you know tons of grocery stores have BBQ’s on the 4th? We wanted to do our town’s parade, but it’s just still too difficult for Maddox at this age. Maybe next year.
After the store (and Maddox’s nap), we headed to my parents to swim and cook out.
We were headed home and were going to stop by McKinney’s firework show, but when we got there both boys were asleep and it wasn’t going to start for another 45 minutes, so we headed home and decided to catch them next year…hopefully.
Last night we watched my most favorite sporting event! The women’s World Cup final game. USA vs. Japan. A repeat of 2011. I knew we’d win, but to win 5-2 and Carli Lloyd scoring a hat trick???!!!! What a game. We slaughtered them! And I loved how many people were talking about the game. It’s gaining popularity, which is awesome. I played against and with a few of those players as a youth and I know how much dedication it takes to get to that level and be the best in the WORLD. Congrats to the USA team!
