Blogtoberfest Day 1

Fall is here and it is a busy time of year. DD #1 is cheering for a college football team. She got dropped from a full extension in practice earlier this week, so she will NOT be cheering at the game this weekend. College is going well for her, but she is finding out she really is much faster paced than HS.

DD #2 is playing volleyball, starting as an outside hitter for the varsity team, as a sophomore. She was also chosen as one of the team captains. So she has practice three nights a week and matches two nights a week. They are a very young team, and the season thus far has not gone quite as they would like. They are growing as a team.

Sonny boy is playing MS football, starting as a lineman on both offense and defense. They are undefeated, but he was rather disappointed with the game last night. He didn't get to sack the quarterback the entire game, after getting three sacks last week. It was also his first experience with really bad homer officials. I had to laugh, because that was the one place my HS basketball coach (a very fair and balanced individual, teacher first, coach second, a well played loss was better in his mind than a sloppily, lazily played win) actually said the outcome of a game was influenced by the officiating.

On the knitting front, I am working on a baby blanket for my neice who had a son last week. I am more than half way done with the knitting, but I am really getting tired of the project. I will try to post a picture of it tomorrow.
