One Weekend = Three Seasons

How was your weekend? Us? We experienced three seasons in just one weekend. Let me explain...

First, spring. Duh. It is spring. No need to expand upon that one.

Second, summer. Our weather this past weekend was sunny, bright and downright hot. I even thought about putting on the air conditioning, but we survived with open windows and strategic timing of opening the blinds. But even with our ceiling fans on overdrive, it was hot. The pools won't open for a few more weeks, so the boys took to the sprinkler:


Third, autumn. The Ohio State Buckeyes had their annual Spring Game, Scarlet vs. Gray. This practice game, which pits OSU players against OSU players, was a new phenomenon to us when we moved to Columbus. Does your local college team do this? Well, let me tell you, here it is a big deal. As in, it is televised. As in, more than 95,000 fans attended. Again, it is a practice game. But when R saw the hoopla, he asked, "is it falltime already?" One would have thought...

I know I normally give you the run down of my meals for the week, but instead I want to share:


My friend Shannon posted last week about the snackTAXI. It is a reusable baggie for snacks and sandwiches! Brilliant idea, I am hoping to pick one up soon.

It was hot here too!! Broke a record at one of the airports. In the low 90's on Sunday. Crazy!! Definitely spent some time outside.

We caved and turned the air on...all that pollen gives me the heebie jeebies and John was sneezing up a storm!

We're well-versed in the Spring Game. It's huge in the SEC...when my BIL was here over Easter he was watching the televised game for Georgia.

And, actually...we went to UVA's Spring Game last weekend though it was no where *near* as well attended as OSU's. Even John was impressed with the turnout for Scarlet v. Gray.

So glad to find another site for bags. Happy Sacks is always out of supplies. We use mostly tupperware containers donated from Grandma, but would love a few reusable bags for sancks on the go.

I love the idea of the snackTaxi! Definitely looking into these for the next school year since H will actually be at school for lunch.
