Looking back on my Saturday morning and how it all went down, I guess I should have known something was going on, but I was clueless.
When Jo started texting me at 7:30 in the morning asking me what we were up to today, I should have known.
When Paul hopped out of bed before me, I should have known.
When he encouraged me to get into the shower and get ready, I should have known.
When Paul and the kids started to clean the house, I REALLY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.
But I believed his story that his friend would be at our place at 10:00, and I just assumed he was being sweet cleaning....
And I believed Jo when she told me that she was in the hot stinky gym getting ready to work out...
But when that door opened and in walked in Nathan and Jo, trust me I did not know.
I stood there with my mouth wide open, and in shock! My sister and Nathan were here and I had no idea they had planned this visit. TOTAL SHOCK.
And the kids were in shock too! Paul had told them that they were cleaning for me "as a surprise" but he left the other part out. And then it dawned on Pierce, they are going to watch me play my game! That excited him and I think made him a little nervous too.
Let me digress for a second.
I'm really thankful for a husband that would clean the house because he knows that would be important to me.
And check this, he even dressed up! I so should have known.
So off we went to cheer on the little guy play the first game of the tournament.
My poor sister may only have partial hearing now. Sorry about that Jo.
But when I get excited I jump up and down and scream.
It helps calms me.
I was so nervous for these little guys!
As my tweet said, we are a 7th seed team and our first game was against a second seed team. That team expected to win, but our little guys came out a different team!
But wouldn't you know the game got tied up and we had to go into extra innings.
And here's where Jo threatened to disown me, because I don't do well in these kinds of situations.
But lo' and behold!
And because I was screaming and running around I didn't manage to get pictures of the coaches picking up Pierce and all of them screaming in excitement.
Our coaches were probably more excited than the boys!
This team has struggled throughout the season, so this victory meant the world to them!
But what meant the world to Pierce?
Having these two here to cheer him on.
And this day meant the world to me!
I guess I should have known.
Glad I didn't.
