Saturday was a little crazy. We left quite early to see Charles run in Metamora. It was a beautiful, crisp fall day and the drive was pretty. The interminable wind made it a little uncomfortable, but it was still nice. Phin doesn't ever like to go so he stayed home with Lucy and we had our little outing with Ibby and Archie. They're pleasant companions. Charles got a pr of 15:56 so that was really good. I was praying so hard for him because he hasn't done as well as he had hoped this season, but this time should help him qualify for a college team. Now his grades came in the mail yesterday and are a completely different story, grrrrr. That kid frustrates me to no end. Just turn in your blasted homework! So maybe he can become a plumber. Yes, I'm back to that.
Next on our agenda was a quick lunch and then Ibby's last volleyball game. She is doing so well this year and even serving the ball over the net! I love watching her concentrate and really focus on what she is doing. She is so earnest! After the game we ran home and got costumes on for our neighborhood block party. It is always nice to visit with friends, eat some yummy chili, and let the kids run around with wild abandon! The boys particularly loved the pinata -- who doesn't like to smack something and then get candy for it? We then came home and carved pumpkins.
Not the best pics in the world, but hey!
