September Highlights

1 Oct

How is it October already?!? I feel like the month of September flew by. Of course, I also felt like the summer flew by, so I guess that’s just par for the course around here.

We had a lovely September. Michaela started school in August, so while there was no first day of school, there were some firsts, like securing Michaela’s first Global Entry card (expedited entry upon returning to the country from abroad and TSA Pre-Check for domestic flights) and our first time making s’mores in a solar oven.

Other highlights include:

Mike went on a deep sea fishing trip in Mexican waters with some guy friends over Labor Day weekend

Michaela bridged from Daisy to Brownie, along with the other girls in her Girl Scout troop

I celebrated my 38th birthday (On the night of my birthday, Mike and I did Taste of Downtown, which is my favorite local exercise in gluttony now that the Fair Media Party isn’t ta thing anymore)

Michaela and I went to a retirement party for one of her pre-school teachers, so we got to reunite with kids and parents we haven’t seen for a while, and celebrate an amazing teacher

Mike and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary

We went to LA for the wedding of a good friend from college. It was an Indian wedding, so we got to experience all the beauty and color and fun of that culture’s wedding traditions. Michaela got mendhi (henna tattoos), we ate a ton of yummy Indian food, and we hung out with friends and made new ones.

After the wedding, we stopped to visit some other friends from college who live in Glendale. We swam and had lunch and the kids played together like no time had passed, when really, it’s been a while since we’ve seen them.

We went to some friends’ house for movie night. Michaela finally made it through “The Princess Bride!” Of course, all of the adults loved the film and were quoting it as it went on.

We ended the month with a family trip to an SDSU football game. I had to go for work; Mike and Michaela came with me. We made it all the way until the middle of the third quarter, and a good time was had by all.

I hope October will be similarly fun!
