Ah, a long weekend.
So much time for all the things we needed: downtime, fall splendor, soccer, baseball, archery, and a college visit.
And guess what? I took a few pictures.

How did we end up shooting arrows this weekend? Well, Reed has an obsession with bows and arrows, and has for a long time, and Skyler has heard him talk about it so much that she pretty much does too. I learned archery a few years ago and totally loved it, and I wanted them to have a chance to try. Two of my colleagues at the high school came in on the holiday morning to teach Skyler and Reed how to shoot. They loved it so much, and paid such good and careful attention to the directions.
|look at that intensity.|
Neither of them actually hit the pumpkin, but they came so close over and over again. They were only a little bummed when the only one to hit the pumpkin was MOMMY.
And what is a spectacular fall weekend without late night playoff baseball? At midnight on Sunday night, this happened,
and all the world was joyful. (Except all of my beloved Michigan friends).
Game 3 is today at 4:00, in case you wondered. The kids requested hot dogs and sunflower seeds for dinner while we watch. I said yes.
