News from the Jones household: We have made major changes in our schedule the last week. For the first time since Lincoln’s was five, he is not swimming on the swim team every day. People! That is like an 1.5 gift of time added to my day. Literally! Lincoln swam for an hour a day four days a week, so by the time I drove him to the pool and waited, it took an hour and half. We decided he needed a break and time to try other sports. so he’s taking tennis and golf lessons which are only two days a week. He is enjoying the change and the challenge of learning new sports.
Ryder has swam on and off for the last few years, but has never been as passionate about it as Lincoln. We enrolled him in tennis. He had his first lesson today. As I was driving him to practice, he was talking non-stop, which is what he does when he’s nervous! So I’m accustomed to it and I just let him talk replying with the occasional ‘huh’ and ‘yeah’. As we were parking he said, “Mommie, I hope there’s just one person here I know. Then I hope I don’t know anybody else and I get to make new friends. I like making new friends!”…. I did laugh out loud! That’s my Ryder, he’s just like his Dad! He could give a flip about what he’s doing as long as there are people around to talk to and socialize with!
He’s like that where ever we go. He’ll make friends with anybody anywhere! Ryder loves to tailgate because there are tons of people to talk to, play with and plenty of pretty girls to look at. Yep, he may only be eight, but he knows a pretty girl when he sees one!
So we tailgate on Saturday for the first time this season and I decided to make a simple dish that’s been one of our favorites for a long time. Sausage and Cheese Cups are so simple and so delicious! Prep these appetizers the day before, makes party prep or tailgating a breeze!
