    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.
