Rain Is A Good Thing

Not a lot has been happening over the last week at the Watts' Household. It has been raining off and on for the past 7 days. Gene and I were able to get some yard work done with the help of the kids so it has been nice to have Mother Nature do the watering for us. I have been studying for the GRE because I start my Masters on Monday. Wish me luck! Should be interesting....As usual, life is going by at lightning speed and I just wish it would slow down.

Logan has been going to the gym with Gene a lot and getting on the shooting machine. He works so hard at sports and it's crazy to think his parents are both coaches and HE is the one that bugs us to go workout. I guess it's in his blood! He asked Gene if he could get Kobe Bryant's # cut into his hair. I am not usually for that type of "hair style" but it looks darn cute on my little guy. I remember watching the NBA finals with Logan and he said "Mommy, when I'm in the NBA, I want you to sit on the front row so I can run by and give you a high-five". still makes me tear up with a smile when I think about it. At least he knows I am his biggest fan and will always be!
I bet 20 years from now, little boys will be wanting "Logan Watts'" # in the back of their hair! :) What can I say...I'm proud of him!
Gene and I actually got to enjoy a night out on Friday. We went to PF Changs for dinner and then saw the movie, Grown Ups. It was soooo funny!!! We laughed the entire time. We had some time between dinner and the movie and went to Barnes and Nobles to look at some books for the kids. Logan had asked me if I would read him the story about Ferdinand the Bull (like Sandra Bullock did on Blind Side :)) so we bought it. When we got home, the kids were still up and after Gene took the sitter home (thanks Merit) we sat as a family and Trinity read the story to us. I know in a blink of an eye, our kids will be teenagers and that sort of time together will be few and far between so I will enjoy it now....even if it's at midnight!
On our way out to dinner.
I hope everyone has a Happy 4th of July with friends and family!!
