It's That Time Again

Football season has begun at the Floyd house. The boys love every minute of it which keeps it fun for all of us. Even though the real games haven't started yet our schedules have stayed busy with football activities. We are so proud of our Daddy and love going to everything to support him.

Last night we had pictures for the football program. It was so hot and luckily they didn't take long at all. After the pictures the team had practice so the other coaches wives and I took our kids, all 12 of them, ages 7 and below, to Chick-fil-a for dinner. It was pretty exciting to say the least.

Here's our picture for the year. I'm okay with it. We were all dripping with sweat and ready to leave.

Last Friday was the Blue Gold game. Josh got the boys jersey's this year to match our quarterback, Kiehl. The kids love him and he's so good to them. We really couldn't ask for better players who don't mind my kids hanging all over them.

A couple of weeks ago my parents had the football team over to their house for a pizza party. (Thanks Mom and Dad for letting the entire team and coaching families come over! You're the best!) Everyone had fun swimming, playing foosball and pool in the game room. I think we had a total of 80 people there.

How many guys can you fit in a hot tub?

Back in July we had our annual coaches retreat. This year we went to Tulsa. It was so much fun. The guys did lots of working and the girls had fun hanging out and shopping. We couldn't ask for a better coaching staff. These girls are some of my best friends and I couldn't make it through each season with out them! I'm so blessed to have them while our husbands are all working very late hours this time of year. This year the Gilder's joined the staff. They are such a great family and lots of fun.

Shiloh's first game is on August 30 in the Hooten's Classic against Watson Chapel. Our first three games are going be on TV, two of which will be on national television. It should be an exciting year!

Well, this is our last weekend to be football free for awhile so Josh and I are going on a date tonight with some of our best friends and I can't wait! Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Ten Weeks Already?

Mr. Jack is growing like crazy. He's already outgrown most of his 0-3 clothes. This has been our first week with our big boys at school and Jack has enjoyed soaking up all the attention. On Monday we went for his two month check up which also included his first found of shots. Notice his band-aid on his little leg. Poor guy.

This is pretty much what his brothers have done every day when they get home from school, give him lots of extra loving. I think Jack is wondering what happened to the nice quiet house that he had been enjoying.

Jack and I have been getting out running errands that would have taken way too long with three boys. We stopped by Daddy's football practice one morning too.

At Jack's two month checkup he weighed 12 pounds, 4 ounces (50%) and was 21 1/2 inches long (25%). We have a little chunk on our hands. He now drinks formula every feeding and doing great with the bottle. Jack's still not on set schedule during the day but normally sleeps from 9:30pm-4am and then wakes up at 7am for the day. Except last night he slept from 9pm-6am. Yea Jack! Hopefully this will start being his new trend. We love you Jack and can't wait to see what the Lord has planned for your sweet precious life.

First Day of School

This year my big boys will be at Shiloh together. Peyton is doing the 4 year old Pre-K, five days a week, and Parker will do to the 3 year old Pre-K program two days a week. They both were excited to start school and see their friends. I still can't believe how fast this summer went by. But we are all ready to be on a more normal schedule.

This year Peyton has Mrs. Chenier. He was so excited when he found out she was going to be his teacher for the year. His two best friends, Carter and Alex, are in his class which he is excited about too.

Parker has Mrs. Brunton. Peyton had her last year and we are thrilled to have her again! His friend, Jackson, and cousin Reese are in his class too. It should be a fun year for them. This morning when I got him out of bed he started talking a million miles an hour about all the fun things he was going to do at Shiloh that day. It was hilarious.

First Soccer Practice

This year Peyton is playing soccer for the first time. He's excited to be on a real team. Last night he had his first practice and it was hilarious watching his team! Parker was also able to join the practice since other players were out of town this week.

Peyton ready to go to practice.

They had a mini practice game and the score was 2-0. Peyton scored both of those goals!

Cooling off at the end because it was so HOT!

Happy 3rd Birthday Parker!

Today my sweet Parker turned three years old. We had a weekend full of celebrating but here's some pictures from his family birthday party last night. We ordered pizza, had a cookie cake with "Daddy's truck" on it and three pink candles (pink is his favorite color-ha!), opened lots of Toy Story presents along with his new soccer goal, and played in the back yard with Peyton and cousin Reese.

I got this idea of all the pictures from my friend, Rachel's blog. It was fun looking back at all his pictures.

Happy 3rd Birthday! You bring so much joy into our family. You are so special to us and I'm so proud to be your Momma. I can't believe you are already three. You are growing up so fast. We love you!
