The days are going by fast

The days are starting to fly by. Just before school starts (in Michigan that is the day after Labor Day), the boys start to get busy with sports if they choose to play. Shawn and Mason are doing football. They practice Monday through Thursday from 5-7pm. Mitch plays soccer for school now for the first time. That is from 3:15 to 5pm. So, I have been busy taking them, watching them and picking them up. Sometimes Tom helps with a lot of the running when he can.

That also makes for a late supper time. Which is fine since school is not in yet and boys tend to wake up later and start their day with breakfast being lunch. LOL

Big holiday weekend coming up and that means "end of summer". Speaking of summer-I have had a pretty awesome summer. I have been able to travel to WV, PA and trips to Cadillac to see friends and a memorial for my Mom. It has been great being able to visit with family this summer on several occasions. The first trip to WV was to help get my Dad ready for his move to a different house. We were able to fix it up and paint it before we helped him move into it. I am very thankful for all of the opportunities that I have had to be able to go on these trips. Looking forward to many more in the future. Thank God for the awesome vehicle that I have to get me to where I am going.

One thing that has happened this year that I am enjoying is getting to know a wonderful friend from High School. It is so nice to reconnect. If anyone has been putting off trying to talk to someone or reconnect with someone that have not connected with in a while, I suggest that you take the opportunity and just do it. You might never regret it.

So, long story short. This has been an awesome year so far.

Getting excited to watch the boys play in the sports that they have chosen. It is so neat watching all of the kids grow in so many ways. The changes that they make from year to year is so amazing.

Enjoy your day!

Yes, Fall is usually busy around here. Summer was busy this year too. Will be slowing up in the winter though I am thinking.
