Just to quickly recap early November, one of the things that the boys and I did was eat out a bunch. Nothing like fine dining, but to be honest, Joel being out of town did make things a little easier for me on the food front. We missed him, but I did not miss cooking one single bit! It's just hard when you don't get home until after 5 a lot of days and then have to cook a whole meal (mostly gluten free at that!) while doing homework, reading, bathing, etc. Below is a picture of one of our eating out excursions...
Of course, the highlight was the trophy!!!
After the game, I had to head straight to the airport for a flight to Charlotte for the night. A day of training was good for my sanity! :) Who would have thought!?!? Haha! The Reed's came and stayed at our house for the night, and then I got back the next night. That Tuesday was the big presidential election!!! I thought it would be good to take the boys to this one. May be one we'll never forget! They did help me fill in some circles and did not make a scene about who to vote for, so it was a win. Let's just say they were more vocal about who they wanted to win than me and I was a little worried they, meaning Hudson, might yell something at my polling location! Of course he probably would have been met with an applause, I did not want to create a scene! Ha!
We put Hudson to work blowing the leaves off the court. It was maybe his favorite thing!
We headed home that Sunday and got back to the real world. Having Joel back home after 5 weeks was quite an adjustment (we knew it would be!), but now we're back in the groove! It took a while for the boys to get over their "only mom can do it" attitude and let Joel help out, but they've gotten over it thankfully. It's good to have the whole team back together for sure!
