Wow! The summer is gone and school is underway. Robby is now in kindergarten, Drew: 3rd grade and Hannah: 8th grade. It gets easier in some ways, yet harder in others. Robby is already reading small words all by himself. Not bad for a kid who can't sit for more than 30 seconds. What do you know, he is listening to me and learning along the way. He also started soccer. He's had 2 games now and he scored his 1st goal last night (in his own team's net). That's ok. He's having a great time. He just runs around the field with a big smile on his face.
Drew scored his 1st goal in soccer last week. Yah Drewman! They ended up tying the game 3 to 3. But he scored the 1st goal of the game. We were so proud of him! Soccer is so good for him.
Hannah just got her braces off. She's very excited about that. She looks so beautiful (with or without braces). I can't believe she's in 8th grade this year. She is growing up so fast.
Jason took a day off at the beginning of the month to go with us to Port Huron. We had a great family day to celebrate the boys' adoption a year ago. We got to go on a light ship and the retired Brambles Coast Guard ship. We followed the tours up with ice cream as we watched a freighter heading north on the St. Clair River. What a good day it was!
Hannah and I got a chance to go to Chicago to see Uncle Jeff and Aunt Marta (Jason's brother and sister-in-law) last weekend. We had a great time. We went to the Lincoln Park Zoo, an art gallery (Aunt Marta was helping set-up a non-profit fundraiser there), and most importantly, a Chicago Cubs game. LOVED IT! The stadium was AWESOME! I believe it is the oldest stadium (98 years old)in MLB. Chicago is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. It's just a whole different world to me.
Jason had a man's weekend with the boys. They hung out with the McCausey men. Drew got a chance to shoot Josh's bow and just do some boy things. It was a great weekend for everyone.
The trees are changing color and things are cooling down (finally). Looking forward to a great fall.
