Perhaps one of the most time consuming of all fall activities is the B.O.M.B squad. Affectionately named for the communities that Joey's boys are from.... Belt Line, Orange Mound and Bethel Grove. All in close proximity to one another and it seems our house is in the heart of all three. Mondays are basketball practice and bible study and Saturdays are consumed with games. As you can see, we're working on practicing. Can you guess which one we are? Home or Visitors???? The team grows every week and could really be 3 teams at this point. Any takers??? Orange Mound is ready for some new neighbors...:)
Coach and the boys
Do you see the assistant coach?
Earlier in the month there was big Shenanigans in the Mound with the Heritage Bowl between Jackson State and Tennessee State. We rode in our wagon to the Orange Mound Parade. Daddy's clinic had a "float" and Bethany and Dad didn't catch it in time to start with but jumped on during the parade to help throw out candy.
The Oliphant's came for the fun, too!
Jackson State band. JP loved the drums. The boy can dance and doesn't miss a beat. Maybe we'll see him on the drum line one day?
Lyds enjoying the little play ground. What a sweetie... but don't let that smile fool ya. She's a feisty one she is.
Me and Ray Ray, one of Melrose High Schools star soccer players!
Let the games begin ladies!
Headed to the start line
And their off...
This is what we did while they ran....
Successful Daddy/Daughter run!
Then on to the jump house
Most of our apples were rotten. The kids were scurrying around picking up apples off the ground. You can see from the pictures above that it was just a mill house of picking a child up and letting them pick one apple so I could get my picture. Sad, I know.
Well, that was an exhausting glimpse into our fall so far. I still haven't even posted pictures of the Ball from tonight. It'll have to wait. Happy fall to you and yours!
