Not to be left out

Busy Fall

Molly is very involved this fall.  She's playing soccer and involved in cheerleading (for the little flag football team!).  Her summer softball coach also asked if she would like to play fall softball.  It's on an older team and coach pitch instead of the t-ball she was used to from the summer.  

She had her first games (a double header) today.  Woah! What a change!  Some of these girls looked like they could be in middle school next to my little 5 year old.  Molly definitely held her own getting a hit each time at bat.  She also volunteered to catch one of the innings.  It was a hoot seeing her in all of that catcher's gear.  (Did I mention I may coach just a bit from the bleachers?)...

Cheer pic is a little fuzzy.  Bobby took it in the rain.

Fall. Fall. Fall!

As is tradition, I put my fall decor up over labor day weekend. The weather is supposed to cool off today and I'm in the mood for soup. It's officially September!

Matthew and Molly have started soccer. Matthew has not played since he was 4 (so four years ago). He had his fist game last night and it was amazing!  He scored 2 goals and had an assist!  What a change from the boy who volunteered to sit out and throw grass on the sidelines. He had a blast and was so proud of himself. 

Substitute teaching is going very well and I have subbed every single day. I'm finding that I'm really enjoying middle elementary classes so far.

This is what happens when you let your boys (my husband being one) play baseball in the backyard....

Worn Out!

I was looking at the pics I have taken over the last week and there is a common theme: sleep!  I think the first full week of school has worn everyone, including myself, out!  

Subbing is going very well so far. This week I am teaching high school business, 2nd, 5th and kindergarten. I love when I take jobs at my kids' schools. It's so much fun seeing them throughout the day!

Camping and School

This weekend was the cub scouts Family Campout. In years past, we typically come for the dinner and bonfire but we've never actually stayed the night. Since our trial run a couple of weeks ago in the backyard, the kids have been asking when we would camp again. The entire campout was a blast. Everyone slept thought the night and best of all, there was no rain!

Today, I had my first day of school as a substitute. I'm hoping this will eventually lead into a full time teaching job. Can't wait to see what the future holds!

The "brothers" picture is now a tradition.  I love seeing how much they've grown!
