2017 September and October
September Came in Like a Hurricane...
Ok not really, but we did have a bit of a mess with the weather here. Hurricane Irma had Florida on high alert and we did what we could to make the house safe. We decided last minute to head North and visit family.
We spent some time in Maryland ..always nice to take a walk at the park with Grampy and Granny!
We went to Grandma's in Virginia as well and saw Chris. No time for a vacation we had to head back home to see if there was any damage. We had many friends checking in on the house and they said it looked good from the outside. Nice to come home to our house we've worked so hard on and it's in one piece. We did have some trees and bushes uprooted in the back, but that wasn't any issue.

Fall Ball Lacrosse was delayed because of the weather, but we finally got underway
The girls have been kicking butt out there
We had the 14... next game was 2-12...go Pack Lax!
Rachael has decided to play some lacrosse and has tossed her skills into the Goalie ring!
She's got a great coach...
Isaac had a tournament on Sunday October 8th. He played 3 games they lost the first game, won the second game and tied the 3rd game. Isaac has been out there playing a game since April so he's now got the spiderwebs swept off and ready to rock it this year. I took my camera and forgot to take pictures.

We went to watch and support Dad in the air and Marilyn on the ground. Way to go!
15th Annual Great Pumpkin Shootout
Palm Coast, FL 7v7 Tournament October 14th and 15th
Last time Isaac will play in this tournament. He came away with a bunch of bruises, but got a lot of shots and getting ready for Spring Season when they play those tough teams. We had some old hands out there with some of our boys who have played together for many years (since middle school) and all now Seniors. We also had some small freshman out there getting a taste of the big leagues.
Here's Isaac taking a shot after running down the field hit the post once and had a couple other shots not make it ... effort!
Isaac and Chris decided to show off their white thighs this year...oh boy!

Scott and I went on a short Caribbean cruise to celebrate our anniversary. The weather could have been a little better for us due to some tropical storm activity we never got off the ship, but we did enjoy all the amenities on board the Royal Caribbean.
