It wasn’t just that I couldn’t wait to see her. Her two little Brothers were heading to the Super Bowl with their Football Teams this weekend. I couldn’t imagine her missing this Special Day in their lives. How often will her Brothers make it all the way to Super Bowl. This was truly a Special Occasion in our lives and I just couldn’t imagine that Alexandra wouldn’t be here to enjoy it with us. So I said, “skip the classes,” this is a lesson that can’t be learned in the classroom.
It was the best decision I could have made. What a weekend! Truly a weekend we will remember for the rest of our lives!
It’s hard to believe but both teams Won! I am so glad that our entire family, including my Mom and Dad, were there for this memorable day. You just can’t put a price on this type of emotion.
Our Sunday Supper was so special this week. Not because it was the most amazing meal we have ever had, but because of the memories that were made Around the Family Table. Both boys played so well in their games. We talked touchdowns, blocks and extra points to be proud of.
The most memorable moment for me was when one of Reis’s team mates who hadn’t started all season made a huge tackle. Reis jumped up and down and shouted “I knew you could do it! I’m so proud of you.” This day was about so much more than a Win!
Sunday Supper Around the Family Table was very simple this week but it was absolutely delicious. I love to shop for whatever is fresh and the Tuna Steaks were on sale and were such a deep red, they almost looked purple. I know, you are thinking, everyone else is featuring Recipes revolving around Thanksgiving this time of year…why is she grilling Tuna Steaks….Because to me it is about simple, fresh and delicious Meals made with love.
I had made Homemade Macaroni and Cheese (recipe to follow in next post) to take to the team party the night before and they loved it so much that my kids requested it again the next night. A simple Green Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette completed our easy meal.
I realized this weekend that listening to our heart is more important than doing the “norm.” Whether letting your child skip school for a special occasion or grilling Tuna in November, listen to your Heart.
