We had a new sport this Fall as Jack ran cross-country for his middle school. It was very interesting to watch meets...Jack is in this group somewhere!
Jack saw a big improvement in his stamina and speed. I think it really translated to better speed on the soccer field as well. You will have to imagine this as I took zero photos of Jack playing soccer this fall (it's a huge field and I kept forgetting the good camera). Ugh!
The girls played Fall Ball for softball and through a scheduling miracle, were on the same team! It was awesome!
Jack continued working as a soccer referee this Fall and still really likes it. I wish I knew a little more about soccer as it's a very nice money-maker.
On Jack's birthday we had a little time to kill before dinner, so we went to the driving range. The kids had never golfed before and I fear we created an interest (and therefore a new expense). They all did well, especially after we explained that baseball swings do not work in golf.
And of course, I need to show the downside of fall sports...terrible weather! September and October can really be any temperature between 40 and 90, with a chance of rain or flurries.
