We have been very busy here.  Football is going great for Trevor.  He has been kicking the extra points and he has been superb.  He has been practicing his field goals and he can now kick a 37 yard field goal.  That was in a really nice outdoor football stadium.  So it may be different if the conditions were not so nice.  Trevor will now have a chance to play more, as 2 players on his team now have broken their arm or injured themselves.  I am looking forward to what lies ahead for him.  We are now looking into a different high school for him, as our high school does not have a good football team at all.

Andrew is busy with football and soccer.  His team for football is not doing very good, poor Tom, he is the coach and it just kills him when the kids don't show up to play.  The problem with the league Andrew is in, anyone can play no matter if the kids want to or not.  Tom and I have seen a lot of kids playing who really don't want to be there.  They whine and complain and it is very frustrating for the kids who actually are good and want to DO good.

Austin is busy doing his soccer and he will be going to his homecoming in a couple of weeks.  This will be his first time at a school dance.  I'm a bit nervous hoping things work out o.k. for him and his date.

Tyler is busy, busy, busy.  He is in charge of the School Fall Play again this year, and I told him not to do it.  It is a lot of hours, with no thanks from anyone and it is right when he needs to be working on his college applications.  He also has his job to make money and not to mention all the homework involved with these AP courses.  I don't know how he does it?

Ava, well she is changing.  She is definately her own little person.  She knows what she wants, and when she wants it.  Her hair is finally growing, but she still has not put on any weight.  She has gotten taller, but can still wear the 12-18 months clothes.  We are still adjusting to life at home with no brothers around.  Today, we went and had breakfast with Kelly and Julie, and Ava loved the Pumpkin Cheesecake pancakes!  We like to visit the park and go on lots of walks.  The weather here has been really beautiful.
