Just in case you were wondering what we have been up to lately...
Starting in August, our lives seem to revolve around FOOTBALL!
Do you remember last year when I wrote about Will being Benched? Well, this year he is on a smaller team so he has been playing offense and defense. That has presented a new set of problems--mainly stress and bruises!
Here's a picture of the scoreboard from our only win so far. After the last game (score 6-7), Will said, "That was our best loss of the season!" It's all in how you look at it...
Long after football started....school started. I couldn't find my camera on the first day so this picture is from the second week of 5th grade...
And sometime during the first half of Jacob's sophomore year. (He wouldn't let me take a picture outside.)
The holiday season starts in September at our house with Will's birthday.
He wanted to celebrate by bobbing for apples--never mind that it was a cool rainy evening. No one seemed to mind getting wet.
Some friends of our happened to be driving through town on the day of Will's party and joined the fun. Audra was happy to hold their new baby...
While Kevin led the boys in playing Ninja in the kitchen at 11pm. Way to go Kevin!
Besides football, we have been enjoying cross country meets and cheering Jacob on. Go Jacob go!!!
(Yes, I do think he was wearing some sort of headband in this picture. Don't ask me why.)
The schools here are T-O-U-G-H. One afternoon, Will set up his perfect homework station, complete with popcorn and a drink.
I surprised Audra by taking her out of school one day to go see "Wicked". She said it was amazing. I just said, "Wow!"
This is what Jacob wore on school picture day--the sweatshirt I bought his dad at Disneyworld on our honeymoon. Jacob LOVES retro anything!
Some nights there is no time to make dinner, but no one complains about eating Chic-fil-A at a football game.
With a grateful heart...
