A Quick Update
I never mean for so much time to go by between postings...life is good....on the busy side as I'm getting more days to work than I thought I would. For the month of September I worked nine and half. I know that' not a lot to some, but for me it is. As of now I only have about four days for October, but I'm sure I'll get more
The kids are good....soccer has started and, also, has started to eat up our time.... I did miss William's first game last weekend as I was in Dallas with friends for a ladies' conference. I will get to see him play tonight! Sadly, it's the late game! Starts at 7:45...blaaa!!! But I'm NOT working tomorrow, so I'll be able to sleep until almost six (when Drew's alarm goes off) and get ready slowly as Bible study doesn't start until ten. I'm looking forward to seeing him play. Last week he got three goals and two assist! Yea!! I'm so hoping this is a good year for him.....he played so well as a freshman and sophomore...not so well as a junior.....so, this year is it! He's a senior and should get lots of play time.
The other two are doing well. Ben's soccer games start next weekend as he had a bye this week, but practice is going strong. Melissa is still babysitting a lot, but this year she is getting more involved at school. She has joined the Interact Club and is, also, on the Student Council. And yes, still babysitting a lot.
Friday night Drew and I went out for dinner with friends and then a play. We ended up eating at the restaurant the kids and I went to to watch the Ole Miss vs Texas football game last year when Drew was living in DC. Great food again! Then we saw the little theater's new production, The Adam's Family - While I not sure I agree with all the casting, they did a great job. The actress that played Wednesday was spot on!!
Our other big news while I was in Dallas last weekend, Drew signed a contract with a contractor to expand our driveway and back patio. Finally. This was like the sixth or seventh contractor we had talked to. And the exciting part??? He started last Monday! We should have some of the concrete poured this week. We're very excited about getting this finally taken care of!!
