Fall Sports

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.
