A Week in Review (August 31-September 7)

A Week in Review (August 31-September 7)

Watched: The Jayhawks play in their season opener.  While they looked a little rocky in the first quarter, things started click in the 2nd and were looking good in the 3rd quarter.  I don't feel they've got what it takes to be in the Top 25 year this year, but I am thinking we could win up to 5 games.  What a nice change that would be.

Read:  I started reading The Silver Star.  It is a short little book with a simple story.  I am not reading it very quickly because I am usually falling into bed two exhausted to read for long.

Listened: I picked back up the Owen Meany book on audio CD.  And while it is a good story, I just can't get through it very fast. It isn't drawing me in though.  I will probably return it when it's three weeks are up and just put myself back on the hold again.

Made: A genius kitchen move if I say so myself.  I was making a quick batch of rice krispy treats and was trying to figure out how to handle the cutting and bagging of them while at the game.  I decided to put them into cupcake tins.  It worked beautiful.  It was so easy just to twist out one and eat it.  No cutting, no bagging, just a quick bit of tin foil on the top.

Felt: Excited for Jack to start his flag football practices.  While I was a little shocked by the original email that I got, I think that his coach is going to be great.  He really seems to know his stuff and his personality really keeps the kids in line.  I am sure it will be an interesting season.  Their first game was against a team that I don't think could have followed the age cap.  They were huge. They got beat pretty badly, but none of the kid's seemed to notice.

Planned:  I am in charge of planning our school's party and special event days.  We have our first event in three weeks.  It is so hard to think Fall when the temperatures have been in the high 90s.  It feels like middle of the summer.  It makes it very hard to be productive.  However, I think we are going to have a great time on our day Called All Things Fall.  We will make an owl craft, make some apple sauce,  play some football, go on nature walk scavenger hunt, and play some pumpkin sweep and pumpkin bowling.  Should be a good time.

Loved: Getting see my nephews.  Roy decided to bring them with him for his yearly trip up for the Jayhawk home opener. I kept it a surprise from Jack knowing that he would never be able to go to bed if he knew the cousins were coming.  He was so excited when he woke up and found the three cousins were here.  They had such a good time playing together.  I wish the weather would have been a bit cooler, but they were so awesome through all of it.  I love that they are such good friends!

Here are the pics for the week:

Here are two pics of the game. In the first one, he is on the left side of the screen and in the 2nd, he is linked up on the right side of the screen.  He is number 5.

My escorts to the schorcher of a KU home opener. Aren't I a lucky lady?  I think so.
