It's time for a little football here on the ol' Home Field blog! I don't post a lot about being a football wife because - hey, it's my husband's job just like your husband has a job. It comes with it's own set of struggles and perks! While it's a demanding schedule, I wouldn't trade our football life and football family for the world! I do like to share little peeks into our little football family life from time to time though...so here we go...
BIG shout out to Under Armour and Lisa Wells for these awesome sunglasses for my coach! With year round sun exposure here in TX - a good pair of sunglass is so important out on the field! He's loving these CORE 2.0's!! (#ad - we were provided these sunglasses for free in exchange for an honest review)
I was planning to post about Spring Football (the 4 weeks in March/April where college football teams get to do official practices and scrimmages) while it was happening but apparently I missed the ball on that one. So I guess y'all will just get a recap!
We wrapped up our spring ball season last Saturday with a BEAUTIFUL evening spring game. Seriously, you couldn't have asked for better weather. My kids happened to cooperate the whole time as well (I know, a miracle) which made for a perfect night!
Spring Ball is actually one of my favorite times of the football year. As a college coaching family, we have lots of "football seasons". We have pre-season, season, recruiting, conditioning, spring ball, recruiting and camps. Yeah. If you though a football coach just worked Aug- Nov, you thought wrong! But I love spring ball for a few reasons. First, we get to enjoy some football after a few month break from the official season, and it's so fun to get back on the field! Second, at least here in Texas, the practices are actually cool enough to attend, so I get to bring the kiddos more often.
Unfortunately this season, our team held many of their practices in the evening. Not only did this mean that we didn't get to go as much, it also meant I had lots of solo parenting bedtimes in the past month!
Luckily, we stayed busy and we made time to get to the field or to practices as much as possible during the day.
This was my first spring ball with 2 kids - who both happen to be ON THE MOVE!! No more Ergo pack and sleeping newborn (that was short lived!!).
Here are a few fun things I did with the girls during spring ball:
While Spring Football is fun, I'm excited for SUMMER now! Summer means some extra time with my hubby, a chance for vacations and no more solo bedtimes!!
Football wives - what is your favorite football season? What fun stuff do you do during spring ball?
It's great to see you! I'm Alyssa and I blog about all the things I've found "essential" in my life as a fit mama and football coach's wife. You'll find all kinds of fun stuff here like workouts, oily info, football stories and more!
