This weekend Malone traveled to play Tiffin. It was a pretty good game. The lead went back and forth a few times, but in the end the Pioneers could not pull out a win. The final score was 21-23.
Since I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling in the coming weeks (for work) I decided not to take the kids to the away game. Instead we took advantage of the wonderful fall weather and went to the zoo with friends.
Kolter turned 6 months on Saturday. He did great at the zoo. He didn't make a peep and just enjoyed watching all the wildlife (animals and those crazy humans he lives with).
After a morning at the zoo. I put the kids down for a nap and I nervously listened to the game.
Following the game a friend came over for dinner and then she graciously offered to watch the kids so I could have a break. That was such a blessing. I just ran errands but it was nice to be kid free. I don't know why, but I can handle the kids being around 24/7 all week, but if Kyle is gone all day on Saturday (i.e. an away game) I have a really hard time coping and often become overwhelmed. So, it was so thoughtful of her to watch the kids so I could get out of the house for a few hours. Kyle even got home in time to meet for a mini-date.
