Finally a another stitching project finished. I have one of the two Shepherd's Bush stockings I need to make finished. I will post a picture of it later this week. I have ironed it once, but since I don't use a hoop or q-snaps when I stitch it is pretty wrinkled.
Today we are off to our second soccer game of the weekend. Jonathon is playing with two teams this fall. Sadly, I have turned into one of those mothers I swore to never be--running from game to game, town to town. Fortunately we only have to travel two times, so it should not be too bad. The rest of the games are here in town. I guess that if this is what he wants to do, we will do it until he doesn't want to do it. It is better than sitting in front of the television playing x-box all weekend. But I sure am going to miss my Sunday afternoon football games and naps
School is in full swing for both of us now and Dan is still working road construction. I have a really good bunch of kids so far this year, hopefully that is still my opinion in May. Not starting until September feels kind of funny.
Jonathon is doing well in sixth grade, although, I have to say that I am less than impressed with the teachers this year. It seems that of the six three are very unorganized. Several parents have looked at the grades online to find their kids have a failing grade only to contact the teachers and look through the papers that have been handed back to find the paper graded a week or so ago, and the teacher just didn't record it. So right now we have a rubbermaid in the kitchen where all graded and returned papers go. I really think that if you can't keep track any better than that you should keep a hard copy grade book and put them on the computer from that. I have seen an improvement in this, however, because I think several parents have been e-mailing and complaining.
Fall is certainly in the air and feels so good! It is very nice and cool outside and I have to say I am looking forward to sitting out this afternoon at the game. Last weekend the sun was bright and the temps high and we played two games. Needless to say Dan and I came home looking like a couple of lobsters. He didn't wear a hat and the poor guy's bald spot was burned to a crisp!
Fall weather has me ready to start some vegetable beef soup and chili in the crock pots for a quick evening meal during the week. Last night we had chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes and bread fresh from the oven. Jonathon's friend is spending the weekend and Jonathon asked why I only cook awesome food when he is here. Here I thought I was a pretty awesome cook all the time, but I guess I am not!
Hope you all have a happy Monday and a great week.
