September

I love the Summer but I'm usually ready for it to end once Fall rolls around.  Cooler weather, sweaters, and blue jeans.  We've been sleeping with the windows open and when you wake up the air is fresh and the sheets are cool against your body.  Of course, it's really dark when you have to get up early to go to work, but there is still just something special about it.

So far the year is off to a good start.  Muffin is taking Kindergarten in stride although I'm sure he doesn't eat lunch at least 2 days a week.  Lasagna was not a big hit for my picky eater but I'm inclined not to give in and pack his lunch yet.  I love that he is exposed to new food choices everyday and surrounded by peers that are eating all of said choices! 

Puck has started CCD.  I have to admit I haven't been to Mass since I was married over 10 years ago but since he is in 2nd grade this year and this is the year 1st Communion is received I felt compelled to get moving in the religious education department.  Hubs is not catholic so it took a little convincing but the first class went well and it's truly time for Puck to know that there is a higher power than mom and dad enforcing all the rules.

Soccer has also begun and the boys are really enjoying it, especially Puck.  That week of summer soccer camp really paid off and I can't wait to watch him play in his first game on Saturday.  I really love to watch him play:)  It's fun to see your child really excited about something and wanting to be good at it.

Me...well I'm trying to take it all in stride.  It's a really busy time of the year.  I'm trying to set my priorities for myself and my family.  I need to take better care of myself, physically and mentally.  I've been cooking a bit and looking into healthier ways of eating for both me and the kids.
