2. On Saturday afternoon Will's soccer team earned its second win - and he tallied his first assist - of the season. After a couple of tough losses the two weekends prior, these boys needed a victory to boost their spirits. They may have played "on the surface of the sun" (as I like to describe what it feels like to watch a soccer game in 90+ degree temperatures and direct sunlight with no breeze), but sweating through every inch of my clothing was worth it to see my boy shine.
3. On Sunday afternoon we wrapped up Will's birthday celebrations. He had a wonderful few days, and I'm grateful to everyone who helped make his week a great one!

5. Happiness Highlights:
|Tux seems super excited about his Halloween costume. |
He's going as a tutu-wearing girl version of himself.
|As I said when I texted this picture to their moms, this picture |
looks a lot sweeter than the music they were playing sounded.
I loved watching them create their masterpiece though!
|My parents retired recently, so this description by Erma Bombeck |
made me laugh out loud. "Showed me how to walk with my legs spread
apart so I wouldn't wear a path down the middle of the hallway carpet."
|Our elementary school principals set the "cool" |
bar pretty high - princess dresses and scooters!
Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
