So much going on
Last night we had our first *ever* homeschool football game. Everyone is so excited, this is a new thing in our area and so far everything is working out great. Isabella is on the pep squad, she is having to put ballet on the back burner until football season is over. I am not thrilled about this, I think her dance is very important and she is really talented. But I gave in, and she is having a blast. Our team actually won, which is impressive since most of these boys have never really played football. The homeschooling association is also going to do other sports including golf, which has Austin very excited. I am a little exhausted with all of the practices and now dance is getting ready to start for the other 2 girls, not to mention homeschooling. I am in my vehicle way too much for my liking.
Oh, and Austin got a job at the Country Club he plays golf at. This is wonderful for him and for us. Employees get a free membership, plus free food. This is going to save us a ton of money! Also, the club is only 5 minutes from my house. Even though Austin is 16, I still havn't let him get his license. I guess I need to cut the umbilical cord, as dh says, but the thought of him driving makes me sick. Not because he isn't responsible, just that there are so many crazy drivers out there and he is inexperienced. I guess you have to let them actually drive to get experience though, huh lol
All of this going is seriously cutting into my sewing time. I am *still* working on the Oliver + S Puppet Show pattern. I need to finish it, I have so many projects that I want to do.
I have finished the second book in the Twilight saga, New Moon. I need to get the next one. I told dh to pick it up for me when he took a trip to Walmart yesterday. He *conveniently* forgot. I think he is getting jealous, even though I have been very good about not spending every waking moment reading LOL I am going to go and pick it up myself tomorrow, he is just gonna have to deal : D I guess I will just have to look through my new Country Living and Southern Living magazines tonight instead of reading about vampires and werewolves ; )
