I don't think Fall is really here

I just got back from Greenville, SC. It was hot - way too hot for fall. The temp today at Dallin's soccer game at 12 noon was 97!!! Ethan and Dallin participated in the CESA "fall" tournament. They both had the same record - 1-1-1: 1 win, 1 loss, 1 tie. The scores were kind of the same too - the wins were both 2-1, the ties were both 1-1 and the losses were by 4 goals: Ethan's game was 4-0 and Dallin's game was 5-1. Interesting.
We had fun despite the weather. We went to the Mellow Mushroom for dinner on Saturday night deep in the hearta downtown Greenville - they have a great nightlife by the way.
When we got to the fields on Saturday, we were a little early (which is WAY better than being late!). Instead of standing at the fields in the heat, we went to a cute store that was close by. They had the cutest baby sippee cups with names on them. Dallin and I found Tyler, Kyle and Ethan. I said "Dallin, I bet they don't have your name." Dallin replied "What is my name again?" Yes, that was said seriously. Sometimes I wonder about that one!

Life is back to soccer!

Ethan and Dallin had their first season games this past Saturday. Dallin played 2 - lost both; Ethan played one - lost. Oh well, such is life!

The rain situation is so bad! We haven't mowed our lawn in about 2 months - we haven't needed to! The 'grass' on the lawn was a little longer than the 'grass' in the pasture (I am using the word 'grass' loosely - I would say the stuff on the ground is more like crusty weeds!) so we let the cows out and had them eat the stuff on the lawn. What is left is shorter than we've ever mowed it! There is a possibility of rain this week - we are all hoping and praying that it pours!

I found this quote and thought I'd share:

Marianne Williamson:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
