Back-to-School Voxbox from Influenster

I am glad  that I was included on the Influenster's Back-to-School Voxbox,.  This is actually my first voxbox so I'm Quite excited.  Inside the box includes, 2 Pilot G2 pens, compostable pods coffee, Tide Purclean, Flossers and plackers,  Country Crock Buttery Spread coupon, and Land O' Frost Deli Snackers coupon.  These are  perfect essentials for back-to-school.  I haven't tried the coffee and I can't find Land O'Frost  item in our local stores.
We all loved the cookies I made last year using the country crock recipe so I just recreated the same recipe this time.  They were  delicious, perfect for  snacks after school with my two kids.  I don't know if it's just  my kids but every time, they come back home from school, they are starving!  So I am always ready for snacks on weekdays.  
I'm happy that they included plackers and  flossers in their voxbox because that is what we always buy for our kids to  regularly gloss their teeth at night time before going to bed.  It's one of those routines that we established at their young age.  I didn't  exercised  good dental hygiene when I was a kid  so I don't want my kids to  develop the same habit.  I don't them  ending up like me who lost adult teeth at a young age.  Wearing partial is not ideal.
I have never tried using the Purclean Tide so the Voxbox gave me that opportunity.  I used it to clean my son's football uniforms. If you have  a football athlete at your home, you know how  stinky and dirty their uniform can get especially when it is raining.  I actually do laundry  daily now during the weekdays because my son's practice  is on a daily basis and they only have one uniform for practices.  It cleaned really well and I think I will buy this  kind  soon.  Too bad, we don't have a Target nearby, I can't use the coupon they sent me.  
Making a list of things to do everyday is very important for me because if I don't have it, I end up  not accomplishing  the things I need to do for the day.  The list is my guide  to have a productive day everyday.  I love these G2  pilot pens especially the blue because it is  one of my favorite colors for pen.  This would be awesome to use too when sending the  greeting cards this Christmas, I can't wait!
I received these products for free for testing purposes in collaboration with Inflenster. All Opinions are 100% mine.

2nd Scrimmage Football Game

On August 24th, the Jr. Dons team had their 2nd scrimmage.  They played against the team from   Parkersburg WV.  This team was  way different than the first team they played against.  They were very  respectful  and fun to play with.  The Jr. Dons lost again but  they are getting better.  They played better than the first scrimmage that they had against Steubenville team.  
Football is very big here so I guess, it is  always  every father's dream for their sons to play football.  ?That's the way it is for my husband.  He is always excited for  our son's game.  I guess, it is kind of living his dream through EJ since he never got the chance to play when he was younger.  
Even my daughter is  excited that his brother is playing.  I guess, I am the one who  is still apprehensive about him playing because I am always scared that he is going to get hurt.
They wore their  other uniform which has their numbers.  My son's number is 33.
We are still wondering if he could really see what's going on in the game because he doesn't have his eyeglasses on.  So this weekend, we talked to him sincerely and asked him if he needs a sports google  for him to see better and he said yes.  So we ordered him one but he won't be getting it until the  the  second week of this month.
He is not crazy about the daily practice but he really love football.  The coaches told us parents that they might not be able to win this whole season just because his team are a bunch of kids who just started playing this year.  The teams that they have been playing against have been playing for  few  years already.  But the good thing is that, they would be able to have the experience and see how it feels out there in the field against other teams.
Jr. Dons need to be a little aggressive, right now, they are so gentle when they play.
So other teams are just crushing them but it is okay, it is a learning experience.
It is really fun to watch  these kids play.
Pizza was served after the game.  It is nice that  parents are so involved in this.  We even have  schedule of volunteers to do specific things during the game.
My duty is to wash his uniform everyday because if you don't, it would certainly stink.
The next game was held in Steubenville.  I will post about it next time.
