Good one MWC - it is quiet today!

Pros:

ICE HOCKEY - If we have a season - might be delayed or put on hold/

Halloween - my fave holiday!!!

Wedding Anniversary 9/27
- we watch the VHS tape of our wedding. So fun to see it with the girls although the 4 year old was really confused last year (she kept wanting to know where she was)

School Routine - I'm much better with structured time

Cons:

Dark earlier - I hate it! All I want to do is be in my PJs

No more beach/pool


Less money
- All the school/upcoming holiday stuff, annual bills seem to hit at once.

Pros- DD1's birthday, Halloween, the time change and our warmer, clearer Indian Summer weather in Sept and Oct.

Cons- Thanksgiving family drama, chilly mornings, long pants and the annoying holiday displays that come out 3 months early.
