Seasons of Sports, Seasons of Life

Do you ever feel like your life revolves around the kids and their sports schedules?  Would it help if I told you it won't always be like that? Would you believe me if I told you that you might even miss it a little bit? The photos on this layout are all at least 10+ years old. They bring to mind a very busy time in our lives, but also many happy memories.
Journaling reads: "The passing of time was measured by Andrew's sports seasons - and we enjoyed every game!"

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Kioshi


We've moved on to an empty nest, different activities and interests. Most of the time we're just as busy. We're happy to be at this place in life and thankful for the blessing of our grown son and his wife.

  1. Nice layouts.
    I always thought I had "more" time when my girls were younger, lol.
    Empty nester sounds nice, as long as they don't move to far from home.

  10. Just popped in to view your craft room.Seen your comment at Practical Scrappers- I am addicted to viewing others spaces.
    Love that you have a basement space like me. I think you have the award for organizing though. I use lots of containers but am pretty slack on organizing to use sometimes. Loved your embellishments by color and have considered Stacy's system- I gave up when I realized how much I really have.

  12. I love your layout!!! I know I miss watching my son play ball, I've got a few more years with my daughter and love watching her, and will miss it terribly when it's over.

  13. We aren't quite at that stage yet with our boys in activities. I am looking forward to it, but also worried how everything will fit in to our already busy lives. Love the grid layout to show the different memories.
