Bittersweet Week....

This week is bittersweet because it is the last week of regular season football for the boys. Last night was the last night of practice. So after 2 1/2 months of practice almost everyday, we are done unless they win their games on Saturday -- then they go to the playoffs. I'm very proud of them. They have done an awesome job in their first year. Some of the kids have played since they were 5, so my boys were not starters and didn't get a lot of playing time. They still stuck it out and I think that they learned a lot. They also made new friends they wouldn't have met otherwise (kids from the other school in our district).

We had Open House a few weeks ago and it was nice to meet their teachers. They are doing well in school and got all A's on their progress reports. Carrick is home sick today from school...not sure if it is a cold or allergies, but he was running a fever of 100, so I had him stay home and sleep.

We are going to see Bruce Hornsby on Sunday. The kids and I are excited. He is our favorite and his concerts are so enjoyable. Carrick will be sure to make a request list for Bruce...he'll play requests from the audience. Then he'll save them and put them on his website. I made a scrapbook layout of the last one he did.

On the crafty front, I have been teaching myself to knit. I really enjoy it and get a lot done while watching TV in the evening. So far I have done two I have two more for Carrick and Cole. I have also been sewing Pjs for the boys. I completed one for Carrick and 1/2 for Cole. Need to finish up the bottoms on that one.

Nothing has been going on in the house department. Still have a pile of baseboard and trim sitting in the foyer (for the past 3 months) needing to be installed. We have a lot that needs to be finished outside before Winter. A little siding, fixing overhang, gutters, painting window trim, and outdoor furniture put away. Those are just the things that have to be done. There's plenty more in the queue that needs done too....
