Hey Chicago, what do you say

The Cubs are gonna win today.

Go, Cubs, Go

Go, Cubs, Go

chorus of song played after a victory at Wrigley Field

If you have heard this song, you are singing it right now!

Our friend Pedro turned 40 this last weekend, so a group of friends got together and celebrated at Wrigley field. Our seats were on the rooftop of a building across the street from the field, but as you can see the view was fine. Plus we had free food and drinks! It really was a great day at the ball field. I love going to the ball field to watch a game. The group of us then went out in Chicago and pretended like we were 20 again. Needless to say, we are not 20 anymore!

It really was a fun weekend. For all of us to get away without kids does not happen too often!

Never fear....the Wagoner boys are here!

The boys have never really been into dressing up, but the other night they put together these superhero outfits. Of course it was when they should have been in bed, but I was laughing out loud as I was taking the pictures! These are going to be the ones that when they are teenagers and I pull them out they may not think they are quite so funny, but I will! Connor did not want to feel left out so he just put on the hat.

Soccer Star

Well, Carson got his opportunity to shine this weekend in his fall soccer season debut. He had a soccer game on Saturday and Sunday and did a great job both days. He loves soccer and the reason I think he loves it is because he is pretty quick and can out run quite a few of the other kids! He scored 3 goals on Saturday and 2 goals on Sunday. He also likes to play goalie and was able to save a few goals. One time he even sacrificed his face doing so. The goalie position is new this year. He has only played 3 on 3 with no goalie in previous years. This year he plays 6 on 6 including the goalie. It is a bigger field and a lot of running. Once again, we are so proud of him and his determination when he is out there on the soccer field. He cannot wait to get out there and do it again this weekend.

Keep up the good work, buddy!

Under Construction

The Wagoner's basement is under construction! We are putting a bathroom in the basement. The work started a week ago and is progressing pretty quickly! We had a utility room that is now being converted to a hallway with a bathroom to the left. It will have a stand up shower, toilet, vanity and linen closet and get this....on the wall behind the second door there will be an urinal! As most of you know, I live with 4 boys and this seems to be a real big deal to them! I am sure it will be quite a conversation piece and I am sure that it will be something the boys will always remember and talk about! As the only female, I guess I do not quite understand it, but as the saying goes..."If you cannot beat them join them" so I am joining in on their excitement! Can I just say, hopefully they can hit the urinal a little better than they do the toilet!

The second picture shows the opening that was cut out on the way down the basement. It used to be closed in but we decided to open it up. I really like it. They are going to put some rails in. They have also raised the ceiling to 9 ft and took out the drop ceiling on this part of the basement only. When the money tree in the back yard gets some water we may be able to finish the rest of the basement! Just taking it one step at a time.

Notice the tile floor... Jim did that this Labor Day weekend and it looks really good! I will update with pictures once it is finished.
