If you have ever been to Carter's Cottage the shop, you know that DeKalb and Sycamore are sister cities.  Having 2 awesome schools nestled next to one another always encourages a little rivalry and a sincere thanks to Castle Bank and Northern Illinois University for continuing a great tradition by hosting the Castle Challenge!  The Castle Challenge is where DeKalb and Sycamore come together for a night filled with community fellowship and FOOTBALL!  A bonus to this event is all proceeds raised by the sale of the tickets and community donations are split evenly to each schools Sports Boosters Fund.  The event this year raised $55,000!  I am so blessed to raise my family in a community that values it's sports programs!

This year, as in all the years past, the game was awesome!  Exciting plays, great marching bands, poms and cheer leading, and the National Guard firing the cannon for every touch down!  Nothing like the rumble of a cannon to make the electricity in the air snap with the excitement of a touchdown!  With my son being a sophomore, this was his first experience playing on a college field and wow was he nervous!  Though he played with all his heart, Sycamore loss to DeKalb.  It was still fun watching the game! Sycamore rallied for a WIN for the varsity game!

Fall is probably my most favorite time of the year.  Bon fires, tailgating, football, hayrides, apples and pumpkins are all simple joys that welcome me!  What's your favorite time of the year? And why?  Fall is just starting and I'm so excited for all this fall has in store for me!
