Where did September go?

Sunflowers on the hill

Good question. Several fun events took place. First off was the fact that Ryan turned 12. I know! Where does the time go? We had his grandparents over for a wonderful dinner and some loot opening. I think he had a good time.
12?  Really?
can i open them now?

September also brought the first ever LGLM5K, the Liz Goodman Logelin Memorial 5K. For those of you not familiar with the Logelin's, check out the link on the right side of the blog. This event will hopefully be taking place every September and I am going to order that the weather is just as brilliant as it was this year.

Joe also had his first professional photo shoot. Our talented friend Nancy took the pictures and they turned out great. Here is a little sample...

Most of September was spent trying to figure out why Kyle was feeling so poorly. After several doctor appointments and what seemed like gallons of blood draws we finally got our answer. Mono. Doesn't that sound familiar. Yes, that was one of the first tests they ran, but came back with a false negative. So, another doc ran it again and voila. He is on the road to recovery, thank God.

I am looking for October to keep us all healthy and strong. We have a lot going on. Work is crazy busy, but going to squeeze in fun things as well. Last weekend was our niece, Jessi's, baby shower. Can't wait to meet Lucy Dawn in person!! Also, Ryan has some time off school this week, so I am planning on taking Friday off to do some fun outside things. Then Saturday will be our Christmas picture day. So weird to think about Christmas in October. How is that for one convoluted paragraph? Just take it from me, a lot going on!
