My Boys!!



When I was younger I never thought that my life would be centered around boys. Lately I have been feeling a little out numbered. Three boys vs. one girl. Last Saturday night, I was informed by Andy and Isaac that they were going to watch two football games on Saturday night (OSU and BYU). Now I don't mind the occasional football game. But this is seriously not looking very good for me. Now Isaac is wanting to watch the games. I am sure that Seth's game watching time will be here soon also. Well, thank goodness the Relief Society general meeting was Saturday night too. So I Left the boys alone and joined the women in our Stake for the broadcast. It was a very good and inspiring meeting, I am so glad that I went. When I returned home, I took a deep breath before entering my house. I never quite know what the house is going to look like when I leave the boys alone. The first thing I noticed as I entered the room, popcorn all over the floor. The second thing I noticed, Isaac fast asleep on the couch. The third thing I noticed, the football game is still on and Andy is still watching it. What surprised me the most was that I was not at all bugged by this situation. See Andy has been so busy this past month, he really has not had much time to spend with the boys. I was happy to see that my boys got to spend some quality time together. And I have to mention, that BYU and OSU both won. So that means that we were all in a even better mood the next day.

What a cute post. Jarren has really missed having Andy to watch the games with. We had to get a babsitter so he could watch the game and I could go to the Conference. He was not going to miss the BYU game. Call me when you guys think you are coming down. We are excited to see you.

I know how you feel....life at our house is wrestle mania most afternoons. Thank heavens for Relief Society! Thanks for your comments on my blog. I really love reading about the Michigan Olsen Clan.

How cute! I know what it's like to be out numbered. With all my luck (good luck) that is how I will be. Having a boy has been so fun and has kept me on my toes all the time!

That's so cool that Andy and the boys got to hang out and watch the football game together. You guys have the cutest family. It was fun going to the RS broadcast with you, I really enjoyed it as well.

Jess, you could have a cripple on your hands who watches baseball, football, and golf all day long, and if a fresh one isn't on, the recorded ones work just fine. I'm about to go batty!

Bless your heart Jess! A lesser woman (me) couldn't handle all the sports!
