Halloween 2012

I suppose MK is technically too old to trick-or-treat. However, when you have an eight year old brother, it's a perfect excuse to go. So, she invited some friends, and off they went!

Pumpkin Patch

We took a long time heading to the patch this year. We made it there today after church. Convenient, since it's at our church.

We bought three, and just took pictures the rest of the time. So here they are!

Happy birthday to me!!

It has been a fun day. The Big Man had a work meeting in Pensacola, so I took the day off and let the kids have a day off, and we had a fun day by the bay. We ate lobster and shrimp, played a little volleyball on the beach, and T. Willy even went swimming. I know we live in Florida, but it is usually not warm enough to swim in late October.

I've had dozens of texts and Facebook messages which really meant a lot. It really isn't all that bad turning 43.

Autumn love

It is my favorite time of year. It has gotten cooler, and I love it! There are only two games left. I am getting very sentimental about it. I'm not sure I've ever mentioned it (haha,) but I have loved being a band mom, and it's coming to an end. We lost a district game last night, so it isn't looking like we will see any post season play

MK left this morning to go to a competition in Valdosta, Georgia. They will compete tonight, and then they are going to Wild Adventures tomorrow. MK overslept this morning, but she made it. She sent this picture from the bus - a double decker- and she is excited to be on the top deck

So the Big Man works today, and T. Willy has a football game. It's been awhile since I've had a Saturday mostly free, and I'm looking forward to catching up with things around the house. I also look forward to opening windows for the first time.

Field trip!!!

Last year I did not go to one thing at T. Willy's school - no field trips, not field day - nothing! I vowed to change that this year. An announcement came home about a field trip to a farm. It had my name all over it! So I found a sub and took today off.

It was a really fun day. We drove into the middle of nowhere to a research farm run by the University of Florida. What a blast! We learned so much. But, as much as I love farms and being in the country, the best part was how happy T. Willy was to have me there. He thanked me several times. That meant everything!

One funny thing: we were at the honeybee exhibit, and some girls were asking what something was. I told them that it was called honeycomb. The girls looked at me like I was crazy. One of them whispered to the other,"Honeycomb is a cereal."

We also went to a football game tonight. We fought hard and won a district game. We've been having a tough season, so it was a big boost for us. Go, Bulldogs!!!

Busy isn't a big enough word


T. Willy is playing flag football again this year. He had his first practice this week, and it went really well. He has a new coach, and he seems like a good one. He's patient and really wants the kids to do well and have fun doing it. We're going to take the year off of Cub Scouts this year. There is just too much going on.

MK had a band competition in Troy, Alabama today, so the Big Man and T. Willy went there to watch her. She hurt her knee last night, so we are keeping an eye on it.

The reason I didn't join them was play related. We scheduled a day of set building. We still have a long way to go, but it was a good start. I'm just going to post some pictures now of what we've been up to.

Also, it is my favorite time of the year. I always get a happy feeling when Walmart sets up the holiday baking aisle!!!
