Rainy Days

Saturday morning, Matts had basketball and all other games were cancelled. So, G and C headed out back for a little frog hunting. 

With their trusty sidekick

Buddies-until they weren't.

Waiting to see if this little man has another case of strep, scarlet fever, or just a nasty virus.
So, stomping around  in the rain was a great idea.

It is not the size of a man but the size of his heart that matters

This fall, G has moved up to U-11. It's been a big jump. But (on the good days) he loves it. Due to scheduling issues, G's team shared space with the U-13 team on Wednesday. They graciously shared some of their players to our team and it was game on. 

Luckily, G was "on" that night and he snuck in a goal-lefty! Unfortunately, the big boys forgot he wasn't so big and he took 2 pretty nasty (and totally illegal) hits. Extra luckily, he's alive and well. 

Fall Days

Fall edging it's way into Atlanta. Long, sweltering days are giving way to crisp air and dappled sunshine.

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."

And what a wonderful life we live.

First Day of School 2.0

Little C started school a full 2 weeks after "his boys". Although he could have started Kindergarten this year, we decided that 7:10-2:45 is a really, really looooooong day for this little man. I waffled back and forth. But, after his first day of preschool (9:30-12:30) he came home and took a nap. Ms. Teresa is his teacher and she is wonderful and organized and demanding. Just what our little man needs to get ready for real, real school next year.

Fall in SEC country

Growing up in SEC country; Matts is learning to take football very seriously. From team colors to tailgating and fantasy drafts to 2 a days-It's a way of life here in the South.
Geared up  and ready for his first game.
