There are pros and cons to early morning Saturday soccer games. Pros are that it is not too warm for those September and October games (Colin likes playing in cool conditions) and that Colin has the rest of the weekend free and open by 10:30am on Saturdays! Cons are that well, it is early on a weekend morning to be out and about and running around. Colin's team played hard on Saturday against a better team from North Van. Colin is quite tenacious out there!
I played with a poor, blurred photo using befunky and got some fun results!
I headed out to the airport at noon to welcome my niece back from Australia. She's been there on an exchange for 6 weeks and is only 14! I can't even imagine my boys being away for that long!
Gillian and Hannah popped by Saturday evening to share some of Hannah's latest creations with us. Oh, YUM! The sandwich cookies were a big hit around here and didn't last long.
And yes, amongst all the goodness, there was also homework, assignments, laundry, housework, grocery shopping, haircuts and all that mundane stuff that keep things humming along. Tis life.
Hopefully we are now beyond survival mode and are into "managing" for October!
