Apples and pumpkins
Happy fall! Although it's hard to believe it's already the end of September, the weather turned here this weekend and it definitely feels like fall. To mark the new season, we went pumpkin and apple picking today with Torrie!
It was a beautiful, if chilly, day - we were not the only ones who thought of apple picking today! But the farm was spacious and we had a good time. Lilli went to a spend-the-night party last night, so she sacked out on the way home (wearing the eye mask she got from the party that says - I survived Valentine's slumber party).
Aside from apples and pumpkins, it was a sports-filled weekend. Lilli played well in her game yesterday morning, though her team is not likely to accumulate many wins this season. Here she is warming up against me.
My town soccer team tied our opponent yesterday, and then I lost another flag football game (though not by quite as many points as last week).
Today, I scored my first goal of the season, and the first goal for my entire team this season!
My goal was all that was needed to get us started, and we went on to win 4-3.
Yesterday, I also got to pick up my instrument of choice for school band this year - percussion! For 4th grade, that means a glockenspiel and snare drum. (Let's just say that Mom is not thrilled, but I am!)
Last week was a busy one for Mom and Dad, with both of them traveling for different parts of the week. Torrie helped fill in the gap by walking us to school one morning,
And we thanked her by giving our first (of many) gift to the coming baby!
It's a mini-Tarzan, complete with a blue collar that Lilli crocheted herself. We think baby boy is going to love it.
We're hoping this week is a little less busy than last!
