Daylight hours are growing noticeably shorter, and we’ve been treated to some wonderful sunrises over the Cascade Mountains.

Tonight was the first J.V. Football game of the season. The FB team totally rocked (we won 27 to 8 ). The cheerleaders were fantastic too. Unfortunately, the uniforms the cheer team ordered back in June never showed up. Yesterday the company claimed that they never received the P.O., however if the team ordered the uniforms now they could get them in another 6 to 8 weeks. Um, no thank you, they kind of needed them sooner. The girls were disappointed because they’ve worked very hard. The varsity team saw what happened and they got together and decided to loan the J.V. squad their own skirts. The girls topped these with matching T-shirts so they’d be ready for the game. Now the rush is on to order some pre-made, basic uniforms. There won’t be time for the company to put on a second color, embroidery, etc. Parents are searching locally for striped edging to sew on, as well as an embroidery business willing to take a rush job. All in all, I think the girls handled this situation quite gracefully and the varsity squad deserves a big “Thank You” for taking such good care of their younger teammates. I plan to bake them all cookies or something.
A2 and A3 both love their new teachers. A2 is trying out for Jazz Band. If she makes it then practices will start at 7:00 in the morning at another school. Carpool details, etc. are still up in the air, but we’ll make it work. A3 is excited to have a locker for the first time and she brought an eclectic assortment of items from home to decorate it.
The new work year looks promising. There have been a lot of changes at the school, but students and staff alike have adapted quickly.
Absolutely zilch. Zero. Nada. Goose eggs. That’s how much knitting I’ve successfully accomplished this week. When I finally pulled it out of my purse it was entangled with my keys. Crap.
We haven’t made any plans for Labor Day weekend, other than to attend the first varsity home football game Friday night. All of the cheerleaders are performing at half time. High school and college games are fun to watch, I just don’t enjoy professional sports. Sorry, I digress. Anyway, it sounds like the whole family just wants to sleep in. That sounds like a lovely plan.
