Happy Anniversary! (kinda)

We have lived at 9041 Crockett Drive in Lantana, TX for 1 year now!  I know, I know….most people don’t celebrate such anniversaries, but when you are the Deffenbaugh’s you do!  Since we have lived in 7 places in 11 years, each consecutive year in one spot deserves a little celebration!! 

One reminder that it was our 1 year anniversary here was that Ritchie was on his Annual Guy’s Weekend!  This year the boys went to Phoenix to golf and hang out.  Fun was had by all — Ritchie played quite well — and I am happy to say that the kids and I survived just fine!

One event we had over the weekend with Daddy out of town was another football game for Grant.  It was definitely a ‘Candid Camera’ moment for Mommy — try to imagine the scene:  It was sunny, 91 and Caroline’s naptime when I dragged 3 kids, 3 lawn chairs, 1 small umbrella and a large bag to the fields.  I got us all set up on field #1 so that I could take Caroline to the siblings childcare area, only to be told that No – in fact they aren’t offering the childcare that they had emailed telling us was available.  We trucked back to our chairs in the heat – fumbled around for the Natl. Anthem – then realized that Grant and his team were no where around.  Oh!!!!  They moved to field #2!!!!  So here we truck again — in the heat — me and 2 girls, 3 chairs, 1 small umbrella and 1 large bag (are you getting the picture?)  By this point there are no spots open but near the end zone, so the 1st half of play was unseen by us!!  Grant was the starting QB this week and I desperately tried to see him, but no luck.  The 2nd half of the game they switched ends, so he was playing right in front of us.  They never let him throw a pass (I know that no one could have caught it, but he can throw REALLY well!!!) and so each play took a total of 5 seconds for him to be hiked the ball, hand it off, and have the kid’s flag pulled.  Think I am kidding?  Watch this…..5 seconds…..

So his sweet coach, Mr. Wagner – I’m sure feeling frustrated himself and wanting to help a brother out – put Grant in for one play as running back.  That boy took the ball down the entire length of the field but got a flag pulled as he hit the end zone!!!  At least we had a little excitement!!!  And no, I got no photo or video of that one.  I think I had Caroline by one arm and one leg to pull her off the field as her brother went whizzing by!!  Though bless her heart, she was chanting – “Go Bubba Go!”
