Whoop Whoop!!!

Here is the close up... Thanks Two Dogs! I really should learn me some computer skills! I feel bad for saying the JV isn't doing so hot... They are 2 and 1 and 1 (that means they've won two, tied one and lost one... I just learned that). They won 40 to 0 yesterday! The last game, the one the picture above was taken at, they got whupped up on pretty bad. I can't remember the exact score (its best to forget those things in these here parts lest the young one get grumpy) but it was something like the high 30's to 6. The Varsity team is proving to be a force to be reckoned with this year and everyone is holding their breath for this weekend's game. They are playing the team that placed second at state last year in their division. We don't know yet if they are going to have Double Shot dress for it. The swing players are told a couple days before. If he does, he probably won't actually play but he'd sure like to be dressed and on the side lines cheering the team on.

Double Shot is driving us crazy. You'd think two adults could handle one teen boy... well, we are but it ain't easy. This kid is a bear to get up in the morning. The very same kid that did not sleep through the night until he was 14 years old. That is not a joke. Two months ago we took him to the asthma specialist and he was 5'8" exactly. We had to go back six weeks later and he was 5'9" exactly. It seems that growth spurt we've been awaiting has arrived. It'll be interesting to see if he's grown again when we go back in four weeks.
Have y'all been enjoying the moon the last couple of nights? It was beautiful last night. It reminded Mr. Macchiato and I of when Double Shot was little. He was a crabby baby. Really crabby. So crabby we didn't have any more children crabby. I kid! We didn't have more children because my pregnancies were all high risk with some pretty major complications. He was crabby though. We had a terrible time getting him to sleep at night and then keeping him asleep (just didn't happen). Sometimes I would take him out into the yard and we would look up at the moon. He would get real quiet and say, "The Moooon." He could be screaming and if the moon was out I would tell him and he would instantly stop and want to go look. He was darling with angel blond hair and curls... and chubby! When Double Shot was four just him and I were in the car one night and there was a harvest moon. It was huge and seemed so very close. I got excited and pointed it out to him and he said, "Eh... I seen it before." I was crushed.
I miss my babies. Why do they have to grow up so fast?

My kids called the Harvest Moon the Honey Moon. And yes, the moon has been GORGEOUS. The weather here matches the beauty of it.

How old is DS again? Our Oatmeal Head grew six or seven inches last year, about the time he turned 13. Couldn't keep the boy in long pants. Or shoes. You have my sympathy.

I saw the moon a coupla nights ago, when I was "over the hill". Here on the coast it has been foggy and I can't see anything much looking up, so I am missing it! Darn! I love the full moon!

Ohhh... now that's sad!

I have one that is doing the teen boy growing thing too. They are tired a lot. And eat a lot.

My 'baby' turned 17 this last year and is now about 5 inches taller than me. His sister has also passed me and they both think that is a great joke. I do miss the babies. Mostly I miss the not talking back!:)

Don't you just love high school football. I grew up in the middle of football country and that was the thing to do on Friday night. My favorite was to drive over to the next little town and watch their high school football. They played 6 man football. Talk about exciting!
