Two weeks ago, before it got hotter than hades, Andy took the boys golfing. Those boys had an amazing time! Ever since then, every time we drive by the golf course here in town, Brennan tells me about golf etiquette and asks when Dad is going to take him golfing again. The kid is hooked! Every time he goes outside he grabs his set of clubs and golf balls and hits them around the yard. He really cracks me up. He does a kind of run and jump-hop thing when he’s ‘teeing off’. I don’t know how he even comes close to connecting with the ball!
Aiden, on the other hand, is a very good golfer, for only having gone out to an actual course one time. He lines up his shot, keeps his eyes on the ball, and follows through with his swing. We have a nice, large yard, but he is already hitting the ball from one end to the other. I’m waiting for the day he hits the ball over the fence and conks our elderly neighbor in the head while he’s out there looking at his garden. Whoops!
On another note, yesterday I received my issue of Country Woman magazine. I started reading the Editors Letter and she was talking about Thanksgiving. I thought “why is she talking about that? It’s 3 months away.” Then I flipped to cover and saw that this was the October/November issue. Say what? It’s not ever September yet, and they’re sending me their Oct/Nov THANKSGIVING issue already?!? All it did was get me all excited for T.giving, which is still 3 months away, and make me irritated that they are pushing the seasons like Wal-Mart and other stores do. Don’t get me wrong, I get very excited to see the new holiday items out in the store, but I do not believe we need them out 2 and 3 months before the actual holiday. Mid-September would be plenty early to have Halloween stuff out. Then, instead of skipping one of the best holidays in my opinion (Thanksgiving), lets give it some shelf time starting in Mid-October. Mid-November, pull out the Christmas trees! I guess what I’m saying is, when I’m Queen of the World (yes, this WILL happen someday) this is how the order of things will go, so prepare yourself.
Have a great, wonderful Labor Day weekend! Be safe on the roads! I’m heading out the door now to go to the big craft show with my mom, aunt, grandma and cousin. Talk soon!
