What a week it has been. This week Nurse Boy and I traded roles. I worked and he stayed home with the kids. I love switching it up every once and a while. I think we both get to appreciate the other one more when we get to walk in their shoes for just a bit. I spent most of the week substitute teaching at the preschool I work at during the school year. Nurse Boy spent most of the week entertaining the kids. He may or may not have sprinkled a little bit of housework in there. He did keep up on the laundry though. Thankfully, the man knows that I hate to get behind on the laundry.
The boys also worked their dad for all he is worth. They talked him into taking them to the Chiefs training camp on the hottest day of the year. (OK, I don't know if it really was the hottest day of the year, but it sure felt like it.) So, despite the extreme heat and Nurse Boy's hatred for the Chiefs, they got up early one day this week and headed out the fulfill the boys' dream.
I mean, how can you possibly say no to these handsome faces?!
After an exciting hour long drive, they discovered that the morning practice had been canceled.

Nurse Boy wanted to head home, but those disappointed faces had him rethink his plan. Instead, they hung out until the afternoon practice would begin.
A mere 5 and 1/2 hours later.
(Yes, I have nominated him for father of the year.)
By the looks of my future Chiefs players, it was worth every risk of a heat stroke.
They even came home with some autographs. You couldn't wipe the smiles off of their faces.
But, I am afraid that Nurse Boy still swears that the only red he will be sporting this season will be a sunburn. Ha!
“Poop on Jelly” is what Bruiser used to lovingly ask for at mealtime. For us, it sums up both the bitterness and sweetness that life has to offer. It is through our faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we are able to stop and count our blessings each and every day. This is our life…
