The "partial" part of my being partially retired has kicked in and I have been working for the last week and a half. Whew! I don't know how I did that every day. I am back to the "retired" part until a couple of days at the end of the month.
My family has been making our way through my favorite season, cake season, celebrating three birthdays since the first of September. My youngest grandson, Beck, turned 2 and celebrated early with a party with lots of friends and a very cool "dirt cake", put together in the back of a dump trunk.
On his real birthday yesterday he celebrated with their traditional "2" pancake. He got his favorite mac and cheese and more cake later in the day.
My son. Rob, and my oldest daughter, Jill, whose birthdays are 5 days apart, celebrated with a yummy ice cream cake. I guess they have gotten so old that a candle for every year might have melted the cake, so they just had one candle to blow out.
My grandkids, except Beck, are all back in school. There were lots of first day of school pictures, but I especially liked this one. EJ wanted an FD, for first day, pancake instead of a P for preschool. Smart girl....she got lots more pancake that way.
Did any one see this? Apparently not very many people saw this Salute to Veterans at a Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau field. The network chose to show commercials instead of this thank you to our military. It was done with cards placed under each seat. It took 90 workers two weeks to place the cards for this show of patriotism. The cards changed several times during the show.
With the start of school fall sports are in full swing for my grandkids. I will have my choice of baseball, basketball, football and soccer games to go to. It is all fun, but I no longer feel like I have to get to all the games.....I pretty much go to the ones that are closest and at the most convenient time.
