This beautiful oak tree has been with us since we moved to Houston 17 years ago. For some reason unbeknownst to the arborist in the Houston, the builders plant oaks with the new homes. The common lot isn't too big. Problem being, these oaks have massive root systems and can grow to be very large. This beautiful old tree had lifted the cement slab of our driveway 4 inches, and also on the walk to our house. With homes being built on cement slabs they can also play havoc with your foundation. We sadly decided to remove the tree. I Shed a couple of tears over this happening. It was done in minutes.
I will admit it is nice to see that there is really a house. Being on the north side, it has lightened up the front of the house inside and out. We have since planted a smaller tree, and some azalea bushes that the shade from the tree had killed.
With School being delayed because of Harvey, Gavin's football and Bays volleyball schedules were fouled up. They have been playing on no practice time and changes.
Gavin switched leagues this year he has really enjoyed it. More playing time and a deeper respect have been a big benefit for him. We have enjoyed watching him play. As usual it has been hot, but we have tried to endure it.
Bailey has enjoyed volleyball. We have enjoyed watching her play.
Halloween decor came out later in the month. Didn't have it in me to do it all this year but I made a good stab at it.
Mixed things up this year in the decoration department, verdict is still out weather I like it. Zeke my grandson love it! So I guess it was worth the effort.
Good bye September...
