This is my FAVORITE time of the year - fall is what I look forward to and then relish every fleeting moment as it turns to winter much too quickly. BUT... this is my first season of outdoor soccer with my son. And all I can say is I'm glad I'm not Piglet on this Blustery Day. I believe I was the only mom not sitting in her car texting while her son was out running drills and scrimmaging in a tornadic - like wind. Obviously, I was not granted a look-see at the rule book on what to do during in-climate weather. I was sitting in a bag chair wrapped up in grass-covered blanket (left in the back of the van since the last fireworks outing) playing Simon Says with my five year old. And I either need to order some "Grow Hair Fast Tonic" or purchase myself some industrial strength ear wear.
In this season of wind, I had to fetch only three of the patio chairs from adjoining yards - one behaved itself and stayed where it was planted. I know... that's really scraping the bottom - but it's all I could come up with.
