Project 365, Week 43

This week, not unlike others, was full.  Full of running (around and on the treadmill...yay!), full of rehearsals, and blessings and seeing God work in ways that are so "God".  He is good...all the time.


October 20
In all their years of playing fall ball, this might have been the most guys ever...nine on nine!  It was SUCH a beautiful day to sit out and watch and play with friends.



 Makes me laugh...

 The three brothers....so fun watching the three of them out on a field or a court together.

What?  Don't ALL kids hang out on the house roof?
October 22
A VERY long therapy in-take session (switching to a place closer to our home).  The social worker was an hour late and they couldn't start until he got there.  Aiden and I made the best of it and enjoyed our time alone in the waiting room, snuggled up with books.

Farmer Aiden, hard at work.
 We both get so excited when these gloves go on correctly the first time.  :)
 October 24
We've been dealing with a spoon shortage crisis around here and finally some reinforcements arrived.  I think they are getting accidentally thrown away (or hoarded??) by someone.  These should last us a couple months...
 Sweet little guy woke up sick and soaked but I had to run the girls to school while Shaun was in the shower.  We found him a nice little spot in front of the fire with the iPad and that made everything ok.
 This is going to sound bad...R was gone for a couple nights with the youth group doing a campus experience at a bible college....that's not the bad part, this is....Since he was gone, I took the opportunity to make an apple pie, in hopes it would last for a bit longer than usual.  Even still, it was gone before 24 hours was up.
 October 25
We just hired a new employee, bringing our total team up to four people!  Colombo took us out to lunch for our first team meeting.  All 52 minutes of the drive there and back were just beautifully spectacular.  Amazing fall colors (still!) dotting farmland or pretty houses and it was quiet and serene except for my singing.
 October 26
Last day of soccer.  Since Avery woke up pretty sick and Shaun was at rehearsal, our friend (who is a sports fanatic) took him.  They had a blast and Aiden was reported to have scored several goals and used his pullback trick again.

First organized sport for the little guy was a success, if for no other reason than they had cookies and donuts and sugar drinks after the last "game".

He proudly wore his sister's pink cleats all season and would tell people, these used to be my sister's cleats! (and cousin Maddie's before that :)

Lucky for him, its the only pair we have so maybe next season he'll get some that are his very own.   :)

 Homecoming Day arrived.  I got to meet R's date and her mother and by all reports they had a fun time.

I was the 10:30 PM pickup person (45 minutes away) since the Red Sox were playing in the World Series (in case you hadn't heard).

Much of this was foreign to me, but the thing that struck me the most is that NO parent got out of their car.  They all parked in the lot and waited for their kid to find them.

I didn't have to go in, sign my children out, gather their belongings and hold their hand to walk out into the busy parking lot.  Strange.

How cute are they?!?

The shot of the guys' faces playing football cracked me up! Love the one of Aiden in the driveway. Such sweetness!

Love those football action shots - fun!

I'm glad Aiden enjoyed soccer this year. He's such a cutie - I hope it's always a ton of fun for him.

Yes, R & date look great. I like that sheepish look on his face :)

P.S. Now *I* want some apple pie!
