One of my boys of fall....

John started practicing with his pads on this week. This proud mama thinks he looks so cute in his uniform!!  Is it odd that I took my camera to practice?

Here he is practicing in the center of his favorite position.  He also like playing guard. And I am learning exactly which positions these all are....

First Day of school

Well, I am only a little late on this.  School started here last Wednesday.  It has been a huge jump from relaxing summer to "oh my, we need to move a little quicker and be a little more scheduled" for some reason this year.  I am sure it has nothing to do with football practice, my daycare starting up again, youth stuff (since Joe is interim youth pastor), a funeral last week, and a CRAZY weekend schedule.  And on top of that, all of my tomatoes are ripening so my counter is full of tomatoes and peppers to can and freeze.  This week we are finally hitting our stride and feeling a little more normal.  We are adding open gym for basketball this week and in a few weeks we start speech team, swim team practice and scouts.    A typical life of a family of six....  Here are some pics from the first day of school:

I love how you can always see my kids' personalities whenever we do a group shot.

My ladies

My gentlemen

Guess who lost his top two teeth right before school started?! 1st Grader

I love being able to watch the girls wait for the bus.

Eager anticipation
