Babysat grand daughter this Friday morning. 10 months is such a cute age. She can get around by crawling and stands on her own, but doesn't walk yet. She picks up the TV remote and looks up at the TV, clicks it, and when it doesn't do anything (it's an old one), she throws it down in frustration... or hands it to me with the look like 'maybe you can make it work?' She crawls around and plays 'peek a boo' around the corners. And the funniest thing of all was when her daddy came home and she heard his voice in the kitchen, she immediately took off at her speedy crawl for the kitchen. Once he had picked her up, she nestled her face in his chest and looked at me and DH and waved bye-bye! We all laughed... like that was 'subtle'.

Then this morning we went to 6 year old grandson's soccer game. These are usually quite funny as the kids are so young and full of energy that it hardly matters which ball goes into which goal. But this was a fairly good game. The kids were well matched and the final score was 5 to 4. Our grandson was goalie and did a really great job. Once the ball hit him in the face, bounced off the pole, and before it went back into play, he fell on it and saved the day! I don't have any pictures as I forgot my camera and even if I hadn't, it was drizzling most of the game.
Older grandson was playing his baritone sax at some sort of band competition Saturday afternoon. The marching band has a lot of activities (there was also a football game Friday night). Anyway, we didn't go to this as not only was it supposed to be raining at that time, but also the LSU/Georgia game was on TV. As it turned out, the competition went on but from what we were told, not to about 4:45. Here is a pic of grandson and sax that my son took.
At the moment as I'm writing this, DH is watching the LSU/Georgia game and it is a close one. At one point DH was holding his chest and I asked him if he was having a heart attack. Too busy to even take his eyes off the game, he just shook his head no. I don't sit and watch football games. I will check in every once and a while to see how it's going and what the score is, but can't just sit and watch all the plays. Now being at the game is exciting... but watching on TV... not so much.
I started this on Saturday afternoon and am finishing up now - Sunday morning. Unfortunately LSU didn't win... but it was close game and obviously a good one. DH has been on the phone discussing it ever since.
So, while my weekend has been busy with family, it doesn't make my blogging too terribly interesting... but that's life here at our house... and I'm happy to share it.
I'll close with a picture of our cats checking out a piece of furniture that we're saving for older grand daughter. She needed a desk and our neighbors who were moving didn't want to keep their now grown daughter's bedroom set. So we saved it. We are storing it in a corner of our bedroom and almost all the cats have checked it out.
