So Long September
September is one of my favorite months. Back to School, the leaves are starting to change and yet, none of the Halloween craziness has hit yet. Here are the highlights of this past month.
I took Sammie to see Mary Poppins. It is my favorite Broadway show, hands down. The dancing is phenomenal and we had great seats. Sammie loved her girl time with mom and i love hearing her talk like a valley girl as she gave me all the first grade gossip.
Luke and I went to a BYU football game. The whole experience was a bit frantic, as I was not prepared for the ridiculous traffic getting to Provo and then the nightmarish parking situation. (I ended up paying a college student 20 bones to let me park in his apartment complex. I told him it was highway robbery but I was over a barrel and the game had started.) We had fun and I tell you what--nothing tastes better than a stadium dog sometimes.
Ryan started preschool and looooves it. I wish it was all day.
I went to my law school reunion and since I know you are all wondering...no, I did not wear tights. It was really hot and I was glad I didn't. I did have the worst zit on my chin and I was praying for dim lighting. No such luck--the dinner was in a room in the Wilkinson Center with florescent lighting (the kind in dressing rooms.) Shoot me now. Despite that, I had a great time and enjoyed seeing old friends. We had about 150 people in our graduating class but only about 30 came. It was still fun.
Luke started Flag Football and two nights out of the week, I am dragging my four kids, tons of treats (since it is dinner time), stroller and three camp chairs to the games. Luke absolutely loves it. I have no idea how some of you moms are doing tackle football every night!
Sammie is doing Tumbling, jazz, ballet and Luke and Sammie are doing piano. I spend a lot of time in the car.
Oh, and I am leader of the pack..the wolf pack that is...imagine me trying to manage five 8 year olds, keyed up like crazy, right after school, every Wednesday. I want to put a gun to my head but I am soldiering on.
The absolute highlight of the month was one glorious four hour spa day. Happy belated Mother's Day to me!
This week, the craziness begins...I am hosting Gourmet Dinner night...stay tuned!
