Whereas each Ryder and Chase are taking part in soccer this spring, solely Chase’s age group has video games in opposition to different groups at this level. We headed off to the soccer fields on Friday evening for Chase’s first sport of the season and it was a tough one. They misplaced by fairly a bit however fortunately Chase didn’t appear to let that steal an excessive amount of of his enjoyable and nonetheless loved taking part in, although I believe the post-game snacks and scrimmaging together with his pals after the sport was his favourite half.

On Saturday, our gang made our manner into town for our first Charlotte FC sport! Charlotte FC is Charlotte’s main league soccer workforce (FC stands for “soccer membership”) and it’s the workforce’s second season taking part in in Charlotte. For being such a brand new workforce, there was nonetheless plenty of vitality and pleasure surrounding the sport in opposition to Atlanta United and as we acquired nearer to the stadium, we noticed blue and black in every single place as everybody got here out sporting the workforce’s colours.

Since Ryan and the boys are all soccer-obsessed, after I noticed Charlotte FC had just one midday sport on their schedule for the season, I knew this was the sport for us! (All different video games for the season start after 7 p.m. which is hard with a 2-year-old within the combine.) I believe plenty of households had the identical concept and it was so enjoyable to see so many younger followers out and about. We ran right into a handful of pals which made the sport much more enjoyable!

The boys all acquired into the cheers and it was inconceivable to not get wrapped up within the vitality of the sport.

In truth, Ryan and I weren’t certain how the children would do on the sport regardless of their love of soccer. We figured we might at all times stroll across the stadium and name it a day somewhat early in the event that they weren’t into it however we didn’t want to fret a bit as a result of they cherished it!

Ryder and Chase have been essentially the most invested within the sport as a result of they clearly understood extra about what was occurring than Rhett however Rhetty Roo shocked all of us by actually having fun with it! He cheered and clapped together with everybody else and appeared to like having Mother trapped in a seat all to himself. Haha!

The climate for the sport was good — mid-50s and sunny — however contained in the stadium it felt shockingly heat! I wore a parka and a beanie to the sport however about midway by way of I ended up in a tank prime! I assume direct solar and never a ton of wind will warmth issues up a bit.

Sadly Charlotte FC didn’t rating a single objective the complete sport and misplaced 0-3. That bummed us out a bit however the boys all stated they’d a good time regardless of the loss so I’m certain we’ll be again subsequent season (probably at one other afternoon sport — haha)!

Ice cream at Golden Cow Creamery after the sport helped carry spirits after the loss as effectively!

By the point we made it residence, we didn’t have an excessive amount of of the day left and spent the remainder of our Saturday hanging out round the home outdoors after which made our manner in for film evening. The large youngsters cracked up on the film Turbo (we streamed it from Netflix) and all of us agreed it was an important selection for our weekly household film evening.


Sunday the time modified which made the entire day really feel somewhat funky. Round 8 a.m. (aka 7 a.m.) I went into the large youngsters’ room to see what they have been as much as since they hadn’t ventured out of their room but. I discovered them taking part in away and after I requested what they needed to do on Sunday (we brainstormed a bunch of concepts with them yesterday), Chase stated, “JAMMIE DAY!” Ryder rapidly jumped on board. Once I informed them {that a} “jammie day” means an “at residence day” they have been all about it because it was a moist and wet day. Positive by us!

The one time we left the home on Sunday was to choose up groceries for the week forward and we stuffed the remainder of our Sunday with around-the-house enjoyable and to-dos. I did some meal planning, sorted by way of some garments I nonetheless had in bins and arranged a few of the toys we nonetheless had boxed up from our transfer. I don’t have any photos to point out for our Sunday but it surely was the type of day I believe our entire crew wanted to really feel rested and ready for the week forward.

I hope you all had an important weekend and I hope to see ya again right here once more this week!
