As my grandparents so kindly reminded me, this blog is clearly moving lower and lower on the priority list. Work has taken up more time than usual this semester so I realized it had been a month – yikes! You can tell I haven’t been writing though because every evening, thoughts and stories just start coming to me.
Just to be clear…not voices in my head. Just thoughts. Ok?
I always tell myself I will write them down the next day and I forget. So the only reason I probably won’t ever be a world-famous author is simply because I have forgotten. Otherwise, you know these stories would be best sellers.
September got us back into a routine, with the boys going to preschool on Mondays and Wednesdays. I quickly realized that the grand plans I had for while they were at school just weren’t going to happen. You know how much you can get done in those 4-5 hours? Not much. I am so appreciative of the free time but it looks like all my closets will remain unorganized for the time being!
We’ve been going to the library every week, checking out a ridiculous number of books, and then riding the trolley around The Woodlands afterwards. It’s usually us with the senior citizens that actually use the trolley for transportation!
Playing (safely of course) with their friend, Ben.
After school ice cream treat
We watched the first few Aggie games at a friends house and combined there were almost 20 kids there. This was the upstairs group while the parents watched the game downstairs.
Jake and Drew love playing with our neighbors down the street. This particular day their mom wanted a small tree gone in the flowerbed so all 4 boys put on their boots and attempted to help. They eventually just gave up and pulled all the leaves off!
Don’t let his proud face fool you. I put all 137 of those pieces together. Next time I will read the box carefully before we start on something like this!
We got to visit my sister and her husband in College Station a few weeks ago and the boys stayed with them while Seth and I went to the A&M game. A rare moment of sweetness.
Gig ‘em Aggies!
Jake started playing soccer again at the end of September. He has done great so far this season and even scored a goal his first game (by picking up the ball and throwing it in the goal!)
The boys’ preschool has a huge pumpkin patch every year so they were so excited to see them being set up last week!
We’ve got lots more to share…lots of birthdays in the Anderle household this month! And it’s finally almost “cold” outside.
