Crappy Weather Weekend

Just because the weather was crappy, doesn’t mean that we stayed inside all weekend.  Brad took off very early on Saturday morning for the big game in Iowa City.  He took his friend, Ben, with him this week.  Ben is a season ticket holder for the Cyclones, so every year when Iowa and ISU play, they take the other to the game with them.  It works out great for both of them.  Luckily this year, Brad was able to walk away with the bragging rights.  Go Hawks!  While Brad was at the game, Jaxson and I were out shopping with my mom.  She came down for the day do get some furniture shopping done for their basement.  We ate lunch at Legends and were able to watch most of the first half of the game there, then we finished shopping and came home and watched the second half once Bubbie went down for his nap.  Thank God for Tivo!  Last night was quite eventful also.  To make a long story short, I ended up having my brother, Casey, and my sister all spend the night at our house.  I’ll just say that they all had a lot of fun at their parties and were using good judgement when they decided that they shouldn’t drive home.  So we all got up this morning and had some cinnamon rolls for breakfast.  Jaxson was a little confused as to why they were all here, but he enjoyed showing off for them.  This afternoon, we went to Kade’s first football game, which was in Waukee.  The weather was terrible.  It was in the 50’s with a very cold wind.  It sure felt like it was November.  Kade played really well and even had an interception and two tackles.  Despite their hard effort they still lost to the Giants.  It will be fun to go watch him each week, but hopefully the weather won’t be that miserable everytime.  This evening, Brad and I started a class at the church called Alpha.  It’s a class that we’ve wanted to take for a couple years now and just haven’t been able to with me working almost every Sunday.  It is a ten week class that anyone can go to to get questions that they have about God answered, to reconnect with God, or to just meet people and to get involved in the church.  We’ve talked to several people that have taken it before and they said that it was awesome.  So we are excited about it.  Another good thing about it is that they serve a very nice supper every week before we get started.  Can’t beat that.  Tonight we just sat at a random table with a few people and our table leader just happened to be Jeriann Ritter, the Channel 13 meteorologist, and her husband.  Her and I talked quite a bit.  They are expecting their first child in Feb.  So it came up that I do in-home daycare and they live close to us so she said that she may be giving me a call.  Now I doubt that I will have openings, but it’s worth a shot.

    Erik and I did the Alpha class at Hope before we moved and we met a bunch of great people! It is a wonderful class! Have fun and go with an open heart. It will change your lives!
    Congrats on 5 years too! To think…I played a little part in that happiness for the both of you!
