Good morning Ladies , welcome to the last post of September (yikes!) This month is moving fast, the kids are back at school 4 weeks now and the signs of Autumn/fall are everywhere. Certain trees are starting to change color and the weather is cooler in the mornings. We have been quite lucky that the days have mostly brought us sunshine.
Last weekend it was me alone against the kids. there was a mini college reunion that my love had to attend so I was Mom and Dad ! We did 3 hours of soccer then with our neighbor and his Daughter (she plays soccer too) went to Freddy’s (Mackenzie you need to go!) for lunch. We came home and the boys had a friend over for a sleepover. I got through a mountain of laundry too !
Sunday we went to Church and then in the afternoon there was softball. Monday and Tuesday was pretty straightforward and then Wednesday evening there was a mass/ service for our kids starting Church class for the year. They got to meet their teachers after and class starts next Wednesday. On Thursday after the kids went to bed we watched from dvr Chicago fire and Chicago pd . Do you watch those shows?

Good afternoon ladies and happy Autumn ! It is a very changeable weather day here. it started in the early hours with rain then it was cloudy with strong winds and now it is sunny and nice.
We had a very warm week with temps in the high 80s figuring in the humidity. We got August temps in September and September temps in the last half of August !!
Last weekend was a fast one. We had soccer on Saturday , and my in-laws visited on Sunday . They came to watch our daughter play fall softball . On Monday we had a first, our 4 kids were playing/practicing sports all at the same time, the boys soccer and our daughter softball. A sign of things to come ?? My phone fell on Wednesday and the screen cracked 😦 I have insurance on it and had to wait two days to get the replacement but I was able to use an old one to get by.
I would like to thank everyone on the sweet compliments they gave me on the first photo I published of myself here. I was a little nervous but you all put me at ease !

Good morning Ladies !! I am a day late with my weekly post , I was busy chatting with friends yesterday morning which was fun so here I am now .
Last weekend we had soccer in the morning and then I surprised our 9yr old with a trip to the le Duc Mansion for a civil war era day of activities with re – enactments with cannon and gun firing and also a look at games and toys kids played with in that era. There was spinning wheel demonstrations too. It was also featuring Women of the civil war this year with a lot of Ladies wearing beautiful period dresses. They had a demonstration and fashion show of all the different dress types from workwear to Sunday best. We also got to tour the beautiful mansion itself and how it is preserved .
Sunday we went to Church in the morning and and had a relaxing day at home. Our Daughter played her first volleyball game on Tuesday for her school. This is her first year playing and is enjoying it. She is also playing fall softball so is busy !
Our little guy had a slight choking incident on Wednesday evening eating a PBJ sandwich . He coughed it up but was in distress still so I took him to the ER to get checked out as a precaution. They said his breathing was fine . After drinking some water there he was in better form, more like himself , I think something might have been stuck in his throat and needed to be dislodged. He is back to normal and doing good in preschool.
This weekend has been pretty relaxing so far, we are starting to drain our pool . A sign of cooler times !

Good morning Ladies and welcome to September ! Last weekend being Labor day was a nice long one before the kids went back to school. We started with soccer on Saturday morning which was fun. The rest of the day went quickly , in the evening we went on a date where we met my in-laws and my mother-in-laws best friend and her husband to go to an escape room! Our mission was to find evidence against Miss Amanda Treedeath in some bad acts she did . We had to find clues to open suitcases , doors in order to get to the next stage. the setting was her apartment and we went through all her stuff to find clues, her dresser kitchen cabinets , even the trash can! We did not escape the room but it was so much fun and I recommend it to anyone ! The people there in charge said 6 people is an ideal number for an escape room.
Sunday we went to church early and I watched the All Ireland football final which is equivilant to the superbowl in Ireland. It was exciting and finished in a tie with a rematch on September 14th.
Monday was final prep for school. We made sure everything was laid out and ready for Tuesday . We are making sure that clothes are picked out the night before so there is no delay in the morning! Tuesday was a big day , Our daughter started 7th ( can that be right!) grade , my goodness! Then the boys started in 4th , 1st and our baby in pre school! He was so excited to join the 13 others in his class and it has been going good. All the kids are enjoying being back .
Shoutout : to my friend Mackenzie who along with her Husband DJ recently Moved To Austin Texas from the San Francisco area .
