the children were so excited about the opening of the nfl season ~ until they realized the first game was after bedtime. they approached us with their plan... take a nap after dinner and wake up in time for the game. they even promised to not be grumpy in the morning. we fell for it! they just got up and are VERY excited. they are also happy about u.s. open tennis during the commercials ~ little man is hoping for a federer / nadal final. they have already started talking about the same plan for saturday when the women will play their tennis final in prime time. we will see how this goes.
