Aren't we sportsy.....

We were quite the sportsy family Friday and Saturday. Friday night we went to the Bishop Carrol/North High Football game. Some former students of Donnie's play for BC, as well as some good friends of ours son. Justin goes to North and plays on the North High soccer team. So he and a friend came along to the game too. Poor Treyton was home sick. He's got a nasty cold or bad allergy attack going on. Then on Saturday, Donnie ran in a 5K race in the morning and in the afternoon we went to Justin's soccer game. I think 3 sporting events in less than 24 hours makes us sporty! I don't think the fact that I wasn't a participant is a factor at all in my sportsiness!
Here is Zach eating Cheetos and chearing with Kathy at the football game. We were at the game watching Kathy's son Nick. Donnie and Kathy have taught together for several years and Kathy's husband Tom was a groomsman in our wedding. Zach has spent lots of time with Aunt Kathy as she has watched him for us on several occasions.....including his first overnight trip away from home a few weeks ago!

Here is Zach cheering with Grammy. She is Kathy's mom. Kathy's parents, aka Grammy and Poppy have unofficially adopted themselves as Zach's grandparents. They just love him! They have bailed us out on more than one occasion and watched him for us before we had a babysitter secured. As well, when our babysitter has been out of town or had sick kids of her own they have changed their schedules to watch him. Grammy eventually had to remove all her photo buttons that have pics of her grandkids that are playing in the football game in them. Zach LOVED the buttons a bit too much so off they came! :)
If you look REALLY closely, you can see Poppy in this picture. His head is directly between the two guys who have green and yellow hats on. He's got on a green hat! That's Zach's Poppy! :)

Donnie ran in the race for the cure this morning. He made his goal of running under a 9 minute mile pace. He's training to run the St. Jude Half Marathon in December. So be looking to help support his efforts in the near future! :) Notice this picture is an after look and not a before and during look. Zach and mom didn't get up in time to go watch and cheer him on!

Zach did however let his nasty sweaty daddy hold him after he got home!
We went to a soccer game for Justin this afternoon, not exactly a good time of day as it was during naptime AND it was hot! Here Justin is sporting the team captain band on his arm!!!! The first time he's worn that so he was excited! He plays the sweeper position and played the whole game today. We won't discuss the score of the need to ruin the fact that he was captain today! :)
Hard to get very good up close action shots in the game of soccer in my opinion. Here's my attempt at a couple of them....He's the one in the all red shirt with the white head band. Jersey mix up re numbers so he had to let some other kid wear his jersey and he wore the getto one!

Dad and Zach took a walk to kill some time. I think they are sooooo cute standing out there together. Zach is so tiny next to his tall daddy!

Towards the end of the game we were getting very hot, so we moved away from the stands and really everyone in order to sit under the one lone shade tree on the whole property! Zach resorted to picking grass.....and Trey was able to get the chair to work more as a lounge! Donnie ran around and was the unofficial ballboy, as well as the unofficial official. Meaning he felt it necessary to tell the young line judge that she wasn't calling offsides and then every time he thought they were offsides he would holler! :)

Our cute little nature boy.......

Trey's lounge area.....Trey doesn't always go to the games, but was happy he did today cuz he found $20 in the grass in the parking lot. Nobody was around so he happily pocketed the money! After the game when we got home he quickly left to go spend his "hard earned" cash.
Ball boy......with the actual official in the backgroud!

So that's been our weekend so far. We are going later today over to our friend's Mike and Sheri's to help them wiyh getting ready to put in new sod grass and finish putting in a new deck. And by we I mean Donnie and the boys (at least the big boys). Zach and I will probably plan with their 5 kids instead!
Have a good

I'm tired just reading it! Looks like a full day. We went to a 4 year old birthday party complete with pony rides and a bounce house. We're tired too... :)
