With school starting so does the sports. Austin decided to play football this season after all. At first he said that he wasn’t going to because he thought one of the coaches was mean. But now apparently the coaches horns were replaced with a halo because Austin has decided that maybe he isn’t so bad after all. We also learned that his good friend was on the team. Friday he goes in for his physical, Saturday he gets his mouth guard and cleats and Monday he begins practice. He has practice EVERY weekday evening from 3:30 to 6:30. Lauren will be happy.
Rachel will begin soccer on Monday. Well, I think she will on Monday. I haven’t received confirmation on the fall schedule. If the coach is the same, then the schedule will remain the same. I’ll find out with a 9 pm call on Sunday.
I’m also insanely considering letting Matty do Special Olympics bowling this fall. The only issue I have with it is that I have to drive 30 minutes to get him and then drive 30 minutes to get him to practice. That’s a lot of gas and time. So I’m still tossing that one around. The perks are that it is on the opposite days that Rachel has soccer. And the biggest perk is that work pays me. Since we are a bank we have to log in so many volunteer hours every year by federal law. So the bank pays us for it since it keeps the feds happy. And you just thought those bank people were freely helping out. Not necessarily. I was appalled too. Makes you look at people a little differently.
