These were the first two items on my grocery list.
Do you get my NBA joke? :)
Time for the Folk Festival!
This was Greensboro's last year of hosting this event.
We LOVE it and were so happy we could go again this year.
It has been a ROUGH hurricane season.
Someone expressed their hate for hurricane Irma
through sidewalk art.
Andrew and I took the girls on Fri night,
then went back on a date on Saturday.
We got to do a little dancing.
And watched a little bit of a B-boy competition.
Caroline is competing in Battle of the Books at school this year.
They have to read these fifteen books by Jan, do a little
book report on them, and pass an AR test.
She's off to a great start!
I moved up to play on Div 2 for Gate City this year.
We are doing awesome!
We're in third place and BEAT the first place team 4-1!
Tennis and Qdoba date night.
September was THE month for bouldering competitions.
First, both Caroline and B competed at Triangle Rock Club in Durham.
It was a huge competition.
Caroline took fifth place!
Their coach, Matt, and some of their teammates.
It's also marching band season!
It's funner for the girls when they can bring
friends to the game!
Another weekend, both climbers competed at the US National Whitewater Center.
I had never been there.
That place is amazing.
It was a smaller comp overall,
but their team was well represented!
General Women's meeting.
I've spent MANY hours over the last couple of weeks looking for a third car for our family to buy. I wanted to spend less than $3000, was hoping for a Toyota or Honda, and wanted it to have 150k miles or less. After test driving a few beaters, we came across this Toyota Solara and took it! It is SOOOOO nice to have a third driver with a third car around.
(Our new insurance bill is NOT so nice....)
My softball team made it to the tournament this year!
After taking an early lead, our opponents broke out
their big bats and beat us badly by the end.
I had a great time playing and hope to play again next year.
Annual Lakefield Ward Talent Show!
Whit and Andrew played a duet of Canon in D.
It was so great!
Whit also did a BEAUTIFUL ballet solo with some help from Miss Shelley.
She has been working HARD on her dancing this year and it shows!
This rice cooker was a wedding gift.
Our family loves rice and I use it often.
But after twenty years, it bit the dust this month.
Andrew took Brandon down to CliffHangers in Charlotte
for his THIRD competition this month.
He climbed well, but didn't place this time.
He's looking forward to competing in Regionals in December.
