First, the boys both got their midterm assessments from school and both are doing really well. They are either where they need to be right now or ahead. Daniel seems to be finding his groove, he doesn't even complain about going every day now. Homework has become more challenging, Adrian and I need to work on our plan for getting that done on time each week.
AJ also had his hockey league tryouts on Friday night. He did pretty good, but he ran out of gas towards the end. It was 8:00pm on a Friday night and he was worn out from the week. They take everyone on a team, just try to split the skill levels up evenly at his age. We should find out soon which team he is on and his schedule for the next few months. He also got a free ticket to a Blue Jackets game in Nov so we are planning that now!

When we finished up we headed back to the small market and stocked up on popcorn for the next few months and grabbed a few other veggies for the week. Then we headed up the road to the Velvet factory for some ice cream, playing and a nature walk. The boys really enjoyed walking the small trail on the grounds. It has Adrian and I hopeful that we can finally go to Hocking Hills to hike as a family next year!

It was a great weekend! A good balance of getting stuff done and family fun. Hoping for a repeat this weekend as we head to the corn maze (weather permitting).
