September Review

Time for an update! We've been SUPER busy this past month! To prove it here is a picture of our calendar:
Pretty much every night has been filled with "something". Keeping up with everyone's schedules has been crazy, but we are having FUN!

Here's a run-down of what everyone has been up to this month:

  • Adam attended 4 hockey skills clinics at the ice arena this month. He's SUPER excited to start house leagues in October.
  • Cub Scouts is in full swing with den meetings, pack meetings, and outings. This past week he started his popcorn sales!
  • On September 4th Adam auditioned for the Cedar Rapids Odyssey Choir and MADE IT!!! The choir is put together by the Cedar Rapids Symphony School for 2 & 3rd grade kids. They practice once a week and have 7 performances throughout the year. This is a great opportunity for him to learn more about music.
  • This month Dylan started soccer! He is very excited about being on a team and having his own practices and games to attend (and not his brothers!).
  • Dylan has made some new friends at school and attended his first school birthday party at Pump it Up. Thanks to his new best friends--Jack and Luke for the great birthday party!
  • September 25th Adam and Dylan gave us a tour of their classrooms and school at the Pierce Elementary Open House. Dylan was especially excited about this and had to show us EVERYTHING! Grandma and Grandpa Patrick also joined us for the tour.
  • Sarah has expanded her scrapbooking resume this month by joining 2 more design teams! All About Pictures, the new scrapbooking store in town, has asked her to join their team. She designs layouts to showcase for the store and also attends a monthly meeting to brainstorm new ideas. She was also accepted onto a new scrapbooking challenge blog this past month---Scrap Whispers. Now she has even MORE excuses to scrap!
  • Sarah helped plan her sister Jenny's bachlorette party! The girls started the night with a great meal at Kaji Japanese Steakhouse and continued on to many other locations throughout the night. A great time was had by all--including mom!!!
  • Tim has been busy this past month getting back into his brewing! The Beer Nuts hosted a table in Waterloo. Tim brought a keg of his own to distribute. He had lots of fun with this group and plans to attend many more functions like this in the future!
That's September in a nutshell. Stop back next month to see pictures of Jenny's wedding!!!
