On Saturday, our gang made our approach into town for our first Charlotte FC recreation! Charlotte FC is Charlotte’s main league soccer crew (FC stands for “soccer membership”) and it’s the crew’s second season taking part in in Charlotte. For being such a brand new crew, there was nonetheless quite a lot of power and pleasure surrounding the sport towards Atlanta United and as we bought nearer to the stadium, we noticed blue and black all over the place as everybody got here out sporting the crew’s colours.

Since Ryan and the boys are all soccer-obsessed, after I noticed Charlotte FC had just one midday recreation on their schedule for the season, I knew this was the sport for us! (All different video games for the season start after 7 p.m. which is hard with a 2-year-old within the combine.) I feel quite a lot of households had the identical concept and it was so enjoyable to see so many younger followers out and about. We ran right into a handful of mates which made the sport much more enjoyable!

The boys all bought into the cheers and it was unattainable to not get wrapped up within the power of the sport.

Honestly, Ryan and I weren’t certain how the children would do on the recreation regardless of their love of soccer. We figured we may all the time stroll across the stadium and name it a day a bit early in the event that they weren’t into it however we didn’t want to fret a bit as a result of they liked it!

Ryder and Chase have been probably the most invested within the recreation as a result of they clearly understood extra about what was occurring than Rhett however Rhetty Roo shocked all of us by actually having fun with it! He cheered and clapped together with everybody else and appeared to like having Mother trapped in a seat all to himself. Haha!

The climate for the sport was good — mid-50s and sunny — however contained in the stadium it felt shockingly heat! I wore a parka and a beanie to the sport however about midway via I ended up in a tank high! I suppose direct solar and never a ton of wind will warmth issues up a bit.

Sadly Charlotte FC didn’t rating a single aim the complete recreation and misplaced 0-3. That bummed us out a bit however the boys all stated that they had a good time regardless of the loss so I’m certain we’ll be again subsequent season (doubtless at one other afternoon recreation — haha)!

Ice cream at Golden Cow Creamery after the sport helped elevate spirits after the loss as effectively!

By the point we made it residence, we didn’t have an excessive amount of of the day left and spent the remainder of our Saturday hanging out round the home exterior after which made our approach in for film night time. The massive youngsters cracked up on the film Turbo (we streamed it from Netflix) and all of us agreed it was an important alternative for our weekly household film night time.


Sunday the time modified which made the entire day really feel a bit funky. Round 8 a.m. (aka 7 a.m.) I went into the large youngsters’ room to see what they have been as much as since they hadn’t ventured out of their room but. I discovered them taking part in away and after I requested what they needed to do on Sunday (we brainstormed a bunch of concepts with them yesterday), Chase stated, “JAMMIE DAY!” Ryder shortly jumped on board. Once I advised them {that a} “jammie day” means an “at residence day” they have been all about it because it was a moist and wet day. Wonderful by us!

The one time we left the home on Sunday was to select up groceries for the week forward and we stuffed the remainder of our Sunday with around-the-house enjoyable and to-dos. I did some meal planning, sorted via some garments I nonetheless had in containers and arranged a number of the toys we nonetheless had boxed up from our transfer. I don’t have any footage to indicate for our Sunday nevertheless it was the type of day I feel our entire crew wanted to really feel rested and ready for the week forward.

I hope you all had an important weekend and I hope to see ya again right here once more this week!
