We had a WONDERFUL weekend packed full of time with friends and family. Friday night was Erik's first time playing cymbals for an "away" varsity football game. We sat with the band parents and cheered all night. Had a great time and the Knights won 50 to 7. We crawled into bed close to 11:30 and the next morning our alarms started going off at 4:45.
Saturday morning we got Erik up at 5:15, fed him a good breakfast and loaded him into the car. The reserve Lincoln Southeast Knights played Creighton Prep in Omaha at 9:00 and the kids had to be dressed, packed and on the bus by 6:30. This was their first game of the season and they were able to beat the Bluejays 21 to 13. The boys were exstatic, the majority played last year on the undefeated freshman team and they are coming along nicely.
In the afternoon Brian and I ran errands and worked on homework and wedding projects and in the evening the ladies took their "Bride Ride". We wore purple veils and there are a number of cute and fun pictures. (Don't worry, we'll get some posted soon!) At the end we toasted with pink champagne and cheesecake from my mom and then I went to see the band D Funk with two of the bridesmaids and we nearly shut down the bar.
Sunday morning we were once again up with the sun getting things ready for the Groom Zoom. Brian and I got the master bedroom finished off, I engaged in a little shoe shopping and then the boys started to arrive. Once they were on the road I did homework and when they got back Brian tested out our new grill. The boys had a nice dinner with steaks, baked potatoes, salad, girl scout cookies and beer and then we spent most of the evening with our guests.
Now we're to the "final countdown". Five days to go. Don't blink, you'll miss it! Tonight we're having dinner with Brian's parents and then working on wedding and homework details. Maybe we'll even be able to do a little mowing. Can't believe it's just around the corner.
