Rain, rain, go away!

Remember the song, "Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day." Well that is our situation here in North Georgia! It had been raining earlier, but Sunday Clair and I left Nathan and Evan behind while we drove to our Duke University Hospital's appointment. It rained so hard the whole weekend that the Ringgold Schools were closed both Monday and Tuesday, but back to school today. Here in our subdivision we're not as bad off, but on the news they show some really terrible flooding for homes not so far from here. The good side is that I don't have to water my flowers, but this also means that Evan can't cut our long, tall grass.

Ringgold Middle School's Football

Thursday, September 17th, Nathan had an "away" football game. It was a LONG distance away, but Clair and I also went to see his game. It has been raining and raining, so there was so much mud with the grass on their field! Clair took his fancy camera and I left mine behind, so regretfully I have no pictures to include with this. But I have to tell you what a proud mom I am! He always plays defense, but at this game he also played offense. Often they would call out his name telling every one what successful moves he made. Nathan would be embarrassed if he could hear all of the screaming and hollaring that I was doing-- "Go Bello", "Go Nathan", and more! And best of all, Nathan made the first of the 2 touchdowns for our team's game. I think that close to the end the other school made one touchdown, but our Ringgold Middle School football team WON! (My opinion-thanks to Nathan!) Sorry-I'm just a proud mom.
