Fall is Here

In South-Central IL, fall has arrived. Generally I like fall......cooler weather, baking, bonfires and hay rides. This year is no exception....but it seems colder this year. Dh laughs at me.

We are all good. Football ended up not working out. Apparently Lee is too small.....we really wish that someone had bothered to tell us that before all this time. Practicing 6 hours a week to be able to play 2-3 mins. a game weekly isn't exactly anyone's efficient use of time. We were under the impression that this was YOUTH football where everyone would get to play. Apparently not. But that's ok. He is willing to wait till high school.....some growing time and different coaches. Greg wants to play JFL next year but he is awful small too....we will see.

Soccer is wrapping up. I think that we have 3 more practices and 3 more games. For the most part the boys are back into taekwondo. That makes me happy :) I love my taekwondo family! Greg tested for a received his 2nd degree black belt last week. It has been a difficult journey for this one and we are very proud of him for sticking it out and never giving up.

I am feeling well. A little morning sickness and I have trouble eating lunch, but breakfast and supper are no problem. So I am managing well. I finally have my "intro" appointment with a nurse practitioner today. Trying to talk to people at that office is like pulling very difficult teeth. It can take all day and talking to 3 people on the phone to get an answer there. LOL Good thing that this isn't my first rodeo :) Hopefully it won't take another 3 weeks to get me in to see the doctor. If it does he will completely have missed my whole first trimester. LOL I guess maybe he doesn't care, but seems a little odd to me......6 weeks to wait to see a doctor. Like I said, good thing I know what I am doing.

Bear is growing by leaps and bounds. He talks all the time. His favorite thing to say is "I said no"....generally after he already said "no" about something and you ask again.....but sometimes he just wanders around saying it. LOL He is obstinant too....maybe the other ones were as well. Time tends to erase all that stuff. There is a reason moms can't remember anything. It is preservation of the species.

Well, that's enough about us. Got work to do. And places to go today, on this wet, wet day. Welcome fall!
