Tis the Season of Sports

Well, kind of! I love OCTOBER because in it you see the culmination to a great season of America's favorite pastime, baseball and the MLB World Series. YEAH Phillies!! We were rooting for them, because normally we follow the National League teams since we are avid St. Louis Cardinals fans. Plus, over Memorial Day Avery and I went with family to a Houston Astros v. Philadelphia Phillies game in Houston, TX and it was Avie's very first MLB game. So, how cool for her to have seen a World Series Championship Team for her very first game. Too cool!

This weekend, Illinois begins the IHSA State Football Tournament. Our very own Orion Chargers are ranked #2 in their bracket. Kickoff is 1pm Saturday. We are so excited to see these boys progress. Last year they finished 4th in the State.....we would gamble for a higher finish this year. Show your Charger Pride!!!

And, this week Gracie has her very 1st League Basketball game. Here are some pics of her. She sure had a lot of fun, but she sure has a lot to learn too. But that is what is great about starting young, lots of time to learn the fundamentals.
