Stories from the Sidelines | {San Antonio, TX Photographer}

It's Football Season y'all, and I've already been to 10 games.  That's right, TEN.  Flag football games for my two boys, that is.  And well, this IS Texas afterall so these games are nothin to scoff at.  (the only time I'll root for the Bengals or the Packers) Anyway,  we haven't been to a single college game yet because Kyle has had THREE away games in. a. row.  I wasn't able to go to the Wives Trip, yet again because of said flag football games, soccer games and my work schedule.  So while the wives were cheersing at a vineyard, I was crawling across the soccer fields, sweating and carrying two chairs, a waterbottle, Kaya and her backpack filled with babies.  Sounds about right LOL.  But I so wish that I was able to go and support my husband and the rest of the team and sip some wine with the other wives.

The only way I got through the beginning of September with the new back to school schedules and back to school sports and my busy time of the year with work, was knowing that the BYE week came right after those first three weeks and that the following week would be a home game.  So that being said,  we finally get to go to a game this Saturday the 30th! Whoop Whoop!

I could talk for dayyyyz about being a coach's wife.  Or is it coaches wife?  I can't with grammar right now.  I don't label myself a coaches' (there we go) wife per say because I feel that I am so many more things that that, but being married to a college football coach is so much more complicated.  It's hard to explain.  And let's just say I'm so thankful that we've been here for 10 years which is pretty much unheard of across this coaching community.

Y'all know how like when you and/or your significant other's team loses and it can tailspin you into a bad mood and you get frustrated and take it personally?  (no?  maybe I'm just competitive?)  But imagine if your job depended on those wins.  That's just ONE aspect of the coaching world. 

Kyle misses the majority of our boys' football and soccer games. And he probably won't make it to a single one of Kingston's baseball games.  While most families spend the weekends together, we feel lucky to get to see Kyle for a couple hours on Saturday morning if he has a home game and then a couple hours Sunday morning before he heads back to the office, returning only after the kids have gone to bed. It's hard, Kyle would LOVE to lay on the couch with the kids and watch football all weekend, he hates missing the boys' games and being able to witness some firsts for Kaya.  This life ain't for the faint of heart.

During training camp, the only time that the kids get to see their Dad is if I take them to practice.  Below are some photos from training camp that was back in July.  That's just how I roll, fashionably late is what they call that right? Or maybe they call it being a working mom of three, with a traveling husband whose family lives 1500 miles away-- fuggetaboutit...  Did I mention that Kyle is now the Offensive Coordinator, proud wife rightcheah!

*I'm happy to report that ol Daddy was able to attend 4 of the 5 games the boys had this week!  Made them all so happy!
