Soccer, IKEA, house and alligator....

Blogging about last weekend and half way to the next weekend.... this week is flying by and I am definitely not complaining!
Last Thursday I finally got to see Alayna play soccer. I knew I was going to miss her very first game on Saturday so I went to her practice kinda to make up for it. She has a LOT of energy which is a good thing but her attention span is a little short, but hey she is 6 so what else should we expect. She did pretty good though and was filthy and sweaty at the end. We have them this weekend so we will be doing soccer most of Saturday because their games are in Moncks Corner and spaced far apart. Like Alaynas is at 11 and Logans is at 4:30...Saturday will be a long day!

Friday afternoon/evening our apartment complex had a pool party with food, music, games and a raffle. Most likely that was my last time in the pool, it was already getting chilly so I think gone are the days of the bath water temperature pool. I really enjoyed it even though I was the only person there solo. It was relaxing and I won a prize (selfie stick & $10 gift card to starbucks).
 I went to bed early which I do pretty much anyway but I knew I needed to be up early because mom, sis and I were heading to IKEA.


 We filled the car with all kinds of stuff. I was mostly there for stuff for the house and more specifically the kids rooms. I did good and stayed pretty close to my budget which I was happy with. The stuff I got for Logans room will really help with organizing and we are planning to put labels on toy bins to hopefully help him with cleaning up. We shall see if it works but it certainly is worth trying.

We stopped by the house on the way back home to drop me off. They were prepping the drive way which was cool. Dave and I went by last night and we had floors, a drive way, electricity, water, all the light fixtures were in place, door handles etc. I think the only thing I can see they have left is to re-paint, put in all the shelves for the closets and landscaping. We have 28 days to closing which I am beyond happy about! We have a LOT to get done but hey it will all work out I am not going to stress it!

Sunday morning I took Teddy for a walk and saw the neighborhood alligator, this time he was a little closer than normal.

Dave and I headed to church, Costco with daddy, then to their house to unload furniture we got and hang out for a bit. We came home later so Dave could do homework, this criminal justice class he is taking right now is definitely more demanding of him time which is an adjustment. I think Sunday he worked on homework for a good 4-5 hours at least. We found out recently he is on the deans list so I know he is doing well in his classes.

Hope everyone is having a good week, I think the rest of ours will be rainy but I am sure we need it!
