Mom survival of boys

Joshua broke his hand last week and all week he has said he was going to play football today. Well he did much against my liking his dad reassured me he would be fine. He played offense and defense and a little quarterbacking. Joshua even threw with his brace on his right hand, completing 3 for 3 passes one for 25 yards. His team won 28-0:)
Aidan's team won 54-14. Aidan played a little as quarterback as well but mainly defense. Love watching my boys play. My favorite part is the smiles when they come off the field after the game!

True love

In a moment like this you see true love and concern. Aidan was so concerned and sad for his brother. Joshua got hit on the hand while running the ball with a facemask/helmet in yesterday's game. He will have more X-rays on Monday to determine if the metacarpal is fractured. He was sad and hurt rolled into one. I shed a few tears for him on the way home because he just stared out the window saying 'it's only my 2nd game!' This boy has so much heart for everything he does and he has waited a long year to finally get to play. Praying for the best for him! Love that blue eyed boy!!

Tennis anyone?

Aidan played in his first organized tennis meet today. I would love to tell everyone how he won but he didn't:) he is playing in the 14 and under division. The first singles match was one to get all jitters out and he wasn't sure what he had gotten himself into. Second was boy doubles and still a little nervous but getting better.
Second round was against Tulia:) which ended up to be against his friends he use to hang around. Doubles they had to play a tie breaker after 7-7. They lost but played better. Then he played a singles game against a friend he lost this one as well but the jitters were finally out and hit the ball really really well. So yeah for tennis that I know nothing about:) do you think I can learn all the rules on YouTube?

My oldest boy

Most adults don't see this side of Aidan:)
I look at him in this picture and think how lucky am I to get to watch him grow up. He is such a sweet funny kid. I know that at this young age of 11 he has so much to accomplish and in another 11 years I will sit across the table from him and he will have changed the lives of many. He might have just graduated from Baylor after playing tennis for four years. He might be fixing to go to dental school or into the mission field.
I do know I will hang on to every glimpse he gives me and those crazy smiles and his funny laughter. I love this boy and his heart. Go be a light!

Weekend away

So we ran off to Waco for opening game last night. I was kind of nervous not knowing what to expect after leaving last year on such a high note. So glad they played well :)

In true Culwell fashion we had a memorable weekend... Joshua ate in and out burger before the game, funnel cake, corn dog, lemon ice and chuys for dinner. Only to see it all again in the hotel bathroom. There is such a thing as over eating. He is constantly hungry these days so this typically would not be a abnormal undertaking for him but spice of chuys got him. Cody slept with him. Which meant I had Maude the tumbler in bed!! Only to have Aidan join us at 2 am because he was frozen. So I 'slept' on my 6 inches of the bed in between Maude moaning and sniffling and coughing all night. She has ran fever the whole way home. So normal right? This is how the rest of you travel right??
