Football season has began and Zack is enjoying playing for Patriots again this year. I believe he is enjoying it even more this year because he knows better what he is doing and also because so far his team is undefeated. Winning always makes for a great season!
Both Matthew and Zack are in bands and our house has become the place for their practices. People joke that must be the reason that 4 houses on our little culdesac are up for sale, the noise must be getting to them! I really don't think that it is a problem, we always tell our neighbors to let us know if it bothers them but so far no complaints. They practice in a upstairs room and you really can't hear them that loud downstairs or outside, they just have to keep the door and windows closed. Matthew plays the bass and is the singer in his band, "Kings of Narnia" and Zack plays the drums in his band. They both enjoy it and I am just so glad to see that the money spent on piano lessons have paid off. They both enjoy music!
Matthew's band was able to play in a talent show for EFY in our stake and they did a great job. They have "two gigs" coming up and are having a great time. They are even writing their own songs! I am so glad that they are having such a fun time with it and I am so glad that Matthew has such good friends. I could not ask for a better group of guys for him to be hanging out with:)
It will be a busy school year for the boys with a full load of classes, sports, their bands and social lives but it should be a great one. I am trying to enjoy every minute because I know that we only have a little bit longer with them in our home. Time has got to slow down!
