Boy, September sure came and went quickly for us.
I am loving my work schedule...and come evening I am
tired spending time with my family, catching up on things around here or running Brady to tennis practice.
I thought I would do a quick recap of a few things I want to remember about September...or, the only pictures I took the entire month is more like it!
Brady was was at every girls practice and all of the matches except for a couple of really far away on school night ones.
He kept stats, filled water bottles and helped with drills
and did lots of chatting. He even coached the jv team during two matches when the jv coach couldn't be there. The girls loved it. The girls team finished the season with a 12-6 record.....Eric needs to check because he thinks it might have been one of their best records in a really long time. Today we are finishing up with playoffs.
Brady started team tennis last week, he attends a weekly clinic and gets a weekly lesson with a pro. Now that the girls season is over, he will get to start doing tournaments again. And, of course, he works with his dad on the side.. in his free time! :)
Now that I'm working full time, Brady's dentist decided to make Sunday appointments available. Ok, the two had nothing to do with one another....but I sure am happy that we can get in there on a Sunday. Also thankful for a good check-up.
Brady started playing the trumpet. This is new for Eric and I as we do not have any music talents at all. I'm not so sure Brady does either...but he is excited about his new instrument.
Brady: mom, the only day I want to ride the bus is when I have my lesson at school.
Me: why would you want to ride the bus with that big old heavy trumpet case?!
Brady: so everyone knows I play the trumpet.
We celebrated Brady's half birthday.
It kind of snuck up on us...and instead of the usual cake I make, I suprised him with donuts.
He was thrilled with the donuts and never mentioned the kit kat cake.
I guess sometimes I worry more about that little stuff...
And, the new racquet we ordered for him coincedentally arrived on his half birthday...so it worked out perfectly. :)
I think he likes it....when I went to wake him up for school the next morning it was in bed with him.
Brady and I go every year to this farm to pick out our carving pumpkins and get things to decorate the house and front porch. We both look forward to it. It's one of those things I hope he always remembers.
I hope you all are enjoying a beautiful October.
To me, it's the most beautiful time of the year.
