Just a quick catch up on what's going on around here. We stayed home this weekend, it rained ALOT, which our yard and plants needed. And we needed the rest and relaxation.
Friday we had our first girl scouts meeting. I had a lot of fun leading the girls. I think I did a good job as Katherine has already asked me to be her troop leader again next year, I will take that as a good sign. We will see if by the end of the year, she wants me to be her troop leader again. I am excited about the quality girl time with her this year doing this together.
She is doing well in school (she still LOVES math and science) and is trying out for the UIL academic team on storytelling. She has made it past the first 2 rounds of tryouts, hopefully she gets pretty far and I think it is a great thing for her, but the final team is gong to be pretty small, so she might not make it. We are already so proud of her for trying something new.

Saturday night we had friends over for a joint party (A&M game AND Colin being off his diet). The kids had a blast running around the house with their friends and it was nice for Matt and I to get to hang out with the adults and watch a GREAT game (A&M won in the last seconds with a field goal). Our friend Robin was so sweet and brought over a cookie cake to celebrate that said "We love Colin". They were going to get the cake for him in the hospital but then he was put on the diet. The kids played until almost 11:00pm, then as soon as the last person left, they were passed out. We also decorated the house this weekend for Halloween, the kids are SO excited.. we already have our costumes.
