Sometimes I feel like we need an event coordinator to plan our week out for us. Who is going where when and for how long.
This week Josh has a busy football schedule and Abby has a busy volleyball schedule. Josh has a JV football game in Wrenshall on Monday(about 30 minutes south of Duluth) and a 7th, 8th and 9th grade game in Aurora on Tuesday. Aurora is over 2 hours from Grand Marais on the Iron Range. Then on Friday there is a Varsity game and thankfully that is in Grand Marais.
Abby has volleyball games Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week and luckily those are all at home. It’s a Dig Pink Fundraiser on Monday, Parent’s Night Volleyball Game on Tuesday and just a normal game on Thursday.
With Mike coaching football, bottling beer at the brewery and trying to get things closed up for winter at Voyageur his schedule is crazy too.
It won’t be too long and the hectic fall sports schedule will be over. Play-offs are right around the corner but then again so are hockey and volleyball try-outs for winter.
The thing is, no matter how busy our schedule is I love our kids and their friends. It’s fun to see them grow up, play sports and spread their wings. Our empty nest is a few years away and I know I will miss the hectic schedule when it’s gone. So, like all stages of life I better enjoy it while I can because in the blink of an eye it will be over.
