1. Aunt E and I took over Nola and Nopsi’s Saenger tickets this season. Our first play was at the end of September: The Little Mermaid!
I just love this theater. It’s so pretty.
2. Rory and I have had good luck when passing by the fire station lately. The doors were open twice so we stopped by to take a closer look at the big trucks. No one was around the first time, but a very nice firefighter came out during our second stop. However, Rory refused to climb up into the truck when he offered. Oh well!
A few days later a truck came down our street, testing all of the fire hydrants in our neighborhood. Rory and I abandoned his lunch to go out and wave to the two firefighters and their truck.
3. Every time I wash his hands these days, Rory insists on making a handprint (or two) on my shirt afterwards. Crazy fries.
4. Riley with his Elsa minifigure!
5. We grew Riley’s Star Wars lightsaber crystals and they came out really cool looking. They’re now on the shelf above his bed.
6. Rory and Captain Morgan in the grocery store.
7. Some fellow SCR moms and I had a really fun night out at Cava on September 22. Can’t wait to do it again!
8. Claire now watches Star Wars: Droid Tales too. She has learned the names of all of the characters. Riley is so proud.
Oh yes, the obsession is still going strong.
Although, Riley is moving away from Darth Vader in favor of General Grievous. One night Kenny helped Riley manipulate multiple pool noodle lightsabers so he could be like Grievous, who wields four.
9. Have you seen that YouTube video where a dad uses a vacuum cleaner to put his daughter’s hair into a ponytail? It totally works.
Although I much prefer Kate with her crazy hair. She even has the pajamas to match!
10. On September 29, SCR Athletics had a big fundraiser at Mooyah. Nola and Nopsi, Aunt E, Uncle Jeff, and Kate, and the four of us went to eat dinner there to support Riley’s school. The turnout was fantastic; I’m so glad we got there early. The line was out the door and wrapped around the building most of the night! Riley played the role of greeter, welcoming everyone as they went through the line to order. Too funny.
The night was incredibly successful: the school raised more than $1000. Geaux SCR!
