We gotten 10 inches of rain in September and are 20 above normal for the year. We finally got some blue sky and it's supposed to last all week. The boys lead their flag team to another route today. I think it was 42-12 or something like that. It appears the they don't play the other two good teams until the end of October. The Seahawks and Saints will be a real test for these boys. Sam played a basketball game this morning and got the win, Dylan has a game tomorrow and rugby practice in the afternoon. Saying goodbye to September and welcoming October when fire season typically starts.

Favorite Month

This guy got an early start on my favorite month and possibly my favorite holiday. It as good to see after a couple of days in the Supreme Court nomination nightmare. The whole thing makes me sad. So many opportunities missed that wold have saved us all from this nightmare. Trump must have other evil options that that don't have sexual assault in their history. Or maybe, nominate someone that just leans a little right and might get closer to an old two thirds majority of the once prestigious Senate. The Supreme Court isn't a political appointment.

Happy Halloween.

50 Yards

The ball at the very top of this photo traveled 50 yards and split the uprights. Dylan should kick for the Vikings if they used a rugby ball.

Dylan and I ran the flag team on Saturday while Sam played basketball. I think it's the only time I will need to step in and help coach the team. It's exhausting. 8 and 9 year olds are crazy. We were able to get them focused enough to beat the chiefs 40-18.

Dylan and I then went out and kicked for a while since there was no rugby practice this weekend. He's getting really good at the kicking part of that sport and he's committed to getting better.

Sports Saturday

Dylan had rugby practice and was giddy afterwards because he's so engaged in his new sport and team. Sam played his first basketball game since May and felt great getting back in on the court. They then both coached their 3rd/4th grade flag football team to another win. The little Bills are 2-0 with a dominate 28-6 win over the Chargers.

I was able to walk 7 miles on the track during rugby practice and Nicole ran a half dozen miles at 5am. She has a 22 mile run tomorrow. We are all sitting or lying some where in the house now.

Belated Birthday

Here's me at 54. Feel pretty good and loving the fact that Florence the hurricane went south and is not toppling trees in my yard.

Thanks for all the calls and gifts last week.
