7 Quick Takes - where have I been?

It's been a few weeks since my last post, and here are the reasons why I have not been blogging too much lately....

Fall Fest fun - although this deserves a post on its own.  Hopefully coming soon!

We have had two weeks of soccer practice and games start tomorrow.  We haven't done soccer since Fone and Mario were in Kindergarten and first grade.  Neil coached them way back then.  And, now guess whose turn it is?  Melody, Ariel, and Max!!  And, Neil is sharing his love for soccer and his kids by giving of his time and coaching them as well - well at least two of the three of their teams.

We have our first Little Flowers meeting tonight and I have been coordinating the group for our area for the last four years.  What a big job it is and it takes hours upon hours and emails upon emails, but every ounce of it is worth it for the joy it brings my girls and all the Little Flowers.  
++St. Therese the Little Flower, pray for us, that we have a beautiful year of learning 
and growing in the virtues and drawing closer to Our Lord!!++

Screenprinting!!!   My wonderful hubby has taken up the hobby of screenprinting to make the shirts himself for a couple groups our kids take part in and save the groups money, rather than having them professionally printed.  He has had many late nights as he experimented with and made the shirts when kiddos were in bed.  They turned out very well and I am so proud of him for his hard work and generosity of time!!  Thank you, sweetie, for making these shirts with love!!

School, of course!!  This week completes our 5th week!  Things are going very smooth with the changes we made to make it a more simple year and doable with a new baby coming.

On Monday, the boys' ConQuest group started up and Neil got to take all 4 boys!!  What a quiet house it was, dare I say?!!  Since Neil doesn't have enough to do with his time, so he also is the leader of the ConQuest group as well, and like Little Flowers, it requires a great deal of time to get the year going and set up.  But, he does it with love and joy and it pays off in the fun and learning the boys have with their friends.
