With a little camera drama behind me, I'm finally posting the first half of September. Let's just say that when I thought the pictures were lost, I was devastated. When I found them... well, I was elated!! Yea for helpful tech support people!
September 1 - I mentioned our frog in the last post. Here he is again :)
September 2 - One of the oddities of living in the woods are the acorns that pelt our house during the fall. They aren't quite as noisy without the wooden deck for them to bounce off of, but we do still hear them. I'll have to take a picture again in a few weeks so you can see the gazillions that we have... These little guys were just the beginning!
September 3 - Do you doodle? This was a family doodle.
September 4 - The good ole firehouse hat. I have a picture of Bennett in this same hat when he was a baby. I need to do a side by side comparison :)
September 5 - Uncles teach nephews how to play pool. And apparently, Bubba has a few trick shots to teach!
September 6 - The car was filled to the brim with our Giggles and Grace consignment items. Bennett was a huge help this year getting the toys ready. He hopes to bring in the big bucks!
September 7 - Bennett got a haircut last night. Doesn't it look nice? He always looks so handsome on the way to school :)
September 8 - I worked at the consignment sale while Nana kept Bennett (Brad was on his scuba diving trip!) To say that Bennett enjoys sliding would be a gross understatement. After my long night of work at the sale, this was waiting for me...These pants were so muddy that I actually chipped the dirt off! I'm so glad that he loves to play ball!
September 9 - One of the bonuses of having a Friday evening soccer practice is going out to eat with our friends afterwards. Here Bennett and his friend are playing one of his G&G treasures (that we bought!)
September 10 - Bennett's first soccer game - and he got to be goalie! He loved it! His coach told him not to worry about getting dirty - and it took it to heart! He dove for the ball like a pro... and we won!
September 11 - Our first baseball game! Bennett played outfield and didn't get too much action. But we won - and we were playing the team we were afraid we would lose to :) Fall ball has been TOTALLY different this time around since the boys are doing the pitching. Still so much fun, though!
September 12 - Bennett came home from school telling me about an experiment that they did at school while talking about states of matter. I knew right away what they did - something that we used to do at home when we were little! You can imagine how surprised he was when I pulled out the corn starch and let him do it by himself! (At school they only got to do it in a plastic bag...) Fun!
September 13 - Bennett's very own creations...
September 14 - I love my Wednesday job at the Dental Clinic. Such a blessing.
September 15 - I'm doing a new Bible Study this year and I think I'm really going to love it! We are studying Hebrews and going really in depth. I'm looking forward to really getting into the Word.
I hope the first half of September was great for you! As I've said before, time seems to be speeding by...
