Beginnings...

I think it is the school teacher in me...
but to me the beginning...is Fall!
Happy New Year!!
(school year that is)

My handsome Jackson... headed off to 8th Grade.
He has fun friends and is really excited to NOT be the
youngest in the Junior High anymore.

Mitch- He is a junior and he doesn't need to shave.
I think he thinks girls like facial hair...
I will let him keep believing in that myth...
 if it keeps the girls away.

Meg is going to rock 4th grade.
She told me that this year she was only
going to wear jeans, tennis shoes & t-shirts.
Nothing sparkly, no skirts and no leggings.
A knife in my heart!


Fall also means it is Football season!
This is one of the reasons that I love Fall so much!
He starts defense playing Corner and is #13.
Next year he will get #19...
Seniors have priorities.

 He loves this game!
And we all love to watch it!

Viewmont has a team photographer and she doesn't have to try
very hard to get these players posing.


 Mitch pulled some ligaments in his thumb during the first game 
against Woods Cross so he had to have a cast.
In order to play, he had to wrap it all up.
We liked to tease him that he was join' clubbing'
It must not have been too bad...
he caught 2 interceptions with the club.

The first game he played with the "club" the referees told him a few times not to use it as a weapon... Maybe he will take up boxing next! 

 Mitch was one of the captains.
I love this picture!

 Yes... Fall is the greatest time of year.
I love the Indian summers and the crispness in the air.
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful thing!

Oh, how I miss those days of sitting in the bleachers cheering for my kids! These are going to be some of the best times for you! One word of advise....don't make a fool of yourself yelling at the coach or the referees...it's all part of the game (and it only makes you look bad-take it from one who didn't heed any advise)! Go- Fight- Win :)

They are all such good looking kids!
Exciting time of year. I've missed out on all the back to school preparations.

It's going to be fun to get updates....hint....of all the football games.
