wow, i'm sorry I haven't updated recently

What has been going on, let me see...

Football season is over, We didn't have a great end to the season... we lost our game in the mighty mite bowl, but Tim did have the only touchdown for our team. I did wave to my aunt and uncle in Hudson as we played our game at Tyngsboro high school (which I didn't realize was literally right down the street from their house).

Basketball season starts at the beginning of Dec., but there are evaluations this weekend and next to try and set up fair teams amongst the 2nd and 3rd graders. Luckily Tim and Sam will be on the same team. Although, funny story from yesterday... I was picking the boys up from the after school program and they were helping to clean up the gym to prepare for a girls basketball clinic.

The organizer introduced himself and I pointed out which kids were mine. He looked at Tim and asked what grade he was in because he was a big kid. I said that we was 8 and in the third grade. He said, wow tall kid. I said ya, his dad is 6'8". And he told me that although the clinic is for 5th-8th grade, that he would certainly include Tim since he was so big if he wanted to come.

Now this is just a clinic, doing skills and drills, no games. And first thinking about it, I was like, sure if he wants to... then thought wait a minute, he would be playing with 8th graders!!! He's used to playing with 5th and 6th graders in baseball, but 8th graders? I don't think that he would be intimidated, but the mentality of a 9 year old is very different than that of a 13 year old! We'll see what he says.

Max is Max. He has a one little girl that is his girlfriend at the after school program and they hug before they go home for the night. :) He told me last night that I couldn't give him kisses anymore unless I came to be the lunch helper :) Guess I'll have to surprise him soon!

Ok, I gotta get back to work!
