Gamedays with Matt

It's hard as a parent to try to get in meaningful one-on-one time with each of your children during the course of a week.

Even harder is trying to find time to yourself.

But hardest of all is trying to find time for your spouse.

We often talk in between other conversations. I'm not sure we finish most of the discussions we start.

There are many reasons couples need to spend time alone together in the midst of child rearing, but not many opportunities come along. 

Lucky for us there's college football.

Because we are both HUGE college football fans, this time of year does allow us to have some alone time. Well, that's if you count being with 87,000 other people as alone time.

Matt makes it to every home game. Last year I was able to go to only one with him, but it was the best game of the year!!!

This year I've made more of an effort to get to some games.

Yesterday we even forfeited making the tailgating rounds so that we could get into the stadium early and hang out there to talk before the craziness began.

Even though our team was defeated, and it felt like everything that could have gone wrong in a game did, it was still worth being together doing what Matt likes best.
