Friday Five: Field Trips, Motherhood and Sports

Happy Friday everyone and Happy Cinco De Mayo!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Here is my 5 thoughts and 5 pictures to recap the week with Friday 5.

5 Thoughts

1. Football and soccer this weekend; their games overlapped so we had to divide and conquer.  Alex played great, I missed it of course.. always seems like she plays really awesome when I am not there.

2. I took my nieces senior pictures this weekend.  So crazy that she is graduating!  Time goes fast.

3. I actually took my nieces pictures in the town that my good friend and cousin-in-law, CA Girl lives.  So I dropped my boys off (Alex and Eric were at a Daddy Daughter dance), and they had a great time while I took her pictures.  It was a win-win.

4. I went with Alex on her field trip this week. I have actually been able to go on every single one of her field trips this year, it has been awesome (well except the time Lucas ended up in the ER while I was gone).  It has been fun learning about California state history through her, since I didn't grow up here.

5.  One of the worst parts of motherhood, is cleaning up throw-up.  Last night right as I was about to go to bed, I thought I heard a banging.  When a minute later I heard it again, I went into the hallway and saw someone was in the bathroom.  I stood there waiting for whoever it was to come out, not wanting to scare them, when there was the banging on the door again.  I then went over to find Lucas who had an upset stomach from both ends.. and because of that well let's just say the bathroom took a lot of cleaning.
