Saturday Happenings

 We have a full schedule today, as the teens have plenty on their plates. Nick is reffing two soccer games, & both boys have a school soccer tournament. Sam & I are both volunteering at the tournament, ahead of the game.

M & I were planning to have a date night, but that got scrapped, as the boys game schedule shifted around. Instead, we decided to do a family dinner out. It should be a lot of fun, but different than an adult date night. :-) 

Here's what I need to get done today:

  • Get the boys game gear packed (boys)
  • Drop off Nick for his first ref game
  • Pick up Nick from second game (M)
  • Drop Nick off at the tournament (M)
  • Costco
  • Produce stand
  • Work out
  • Laundry
  • Take Sam to the volunteering, volunteer myself
  • Get Sam to finish his permit test
  • Homework check (we're just a few weeks from finals)
  • Menu plan
Being the parent of teenagers means there's always a lot of driving! :-) 

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. 


  1. Your weeks and weekends are busy filled with teenage activities but, I am thinking these are all major bonding times with your kids. I am hoping that permit test is as in driver's permit. Lol! Have a great weekend too!

    1. Yes, it is for a driver's permit! We are close to having Sam be able to get his license. :-)

  2. You will appreciate Sam getting his driver's license. It sure frees up mom time. Good luck getting to your busy list.

    1. We are excited about the possibility, although nervous to consider him driving a car! :-)

  3. I look back on those weekend schedules and wonder how I did it. Now that I am out of that life, I miss it, but I also like being able to have a Saturday afternoon nap if I want :-)

    1. Oh my - a Saturday afternoon nap sounds like so much bliss.

  4. I so remember the driving of two boys to play hockey in the winter, one to play soccer in the spring and the other to play ball. I now wonder how on earth I managed it.

    God bless.
