It seems the busy season is upon us! It has been a nice LONG summer, but now the fun begins. Football season is gearing up and everywhere you turn, people are excited. The nice 60-70 degree weather has made it that much worse....perfect Football Weather! Anna cheers at her first game this Thursday against Mayflower. She is SO excited and so are we!!
Jake signed up for football last Friday, but was very disappointed that he didn't get to pick up his pads at the same time, as we had done for years in the past. He gets them, instead, on September 8th. He and Joe have been throwing the football every afternoon for the last week just to make sure he is ready!!
This weekend was wonderful....with the cooler than normal weather, the grass didn't grow so much this week, so no mowing!! We actually slept late on Saturday! That doesn't happen too much around here!!! We went to the fair again Saturday night. Anna's bestfriend, Shanae, was in the Fair Pageant and won 1st runner up!! We were so proud of her. She was beautiful!
Sunday, we went to church and spent the rest of the day doing as little as possible. Joe and Jake planted our "fall garden" and planted some winter wheat, chicory, peas and turnips for the deer.
It was a perfect weekend.
Today is the start of another busy week....already got a text from Anna...
This is DEFINITELY not the way I wanted to start this week off!! Uggghhhh!!
I think I'll go back to bed and start over again........
Bye for now.
ohhhhh, as I was finishing this up, a sweet little man in a Big Brown Truck rang the doorbell with a small happy that I bought myself last week!! YIPEE!! Things are getting better already!!
