We Survived the Fall Crazies !

It seemed that we were never home this fall. Maggie started Ballet and she loves it !  She has the sweetest teacher that she absolutely adores and looks up to.  Our little girl can do a tondo and a releve 
 ( for all you ballet people). 

 Maggie also had the first of two surgeries for her BAHA placement ( hearing aid). The surgeon drilled a 4 mm hole in her skull and  placed a "screw". We go back in five months for Maggie's second surgery that will enable her BAHA hearing aid to snap onto her skull. She did great and her doctor said that her skull was nice and thick - yippee !!
Will played an awesome season as wide receiver for the Falcons.  He had practice two times a week and played a game one time a week, so football kept us very busy !!  He also read Tim Tebows biography ( which is incredibly good) and was challenged in many ways.
Walker played soccer for his school and did a lot of traveling with his team for out of town games. He practiced two times a week and played about every week too !! But, as crazy as all the sports and ballet are - I realized that it's all worth it to us because our children LOVE what they do. So that made all the shuffling to and from practices and games not bad at all .  Although, Chuck and I are so glad that football and soccer season is over !  We feel like we can breathe again.
We had fun this year dressing up for our church's fall festival and Reformation Celebration.  
Most of the smaller children had no clue who we were. Ha !
 Happy Fall Ya'll !
