Summer sped by in a blur of baseball, beach trips, and barbeque…
Firstborn spent another season working hard & playing hard, juggling full-time hours at the local amusement park with her bustling social life. We’re reluctantly getting acclimated to seeing her less; now that she’s officially a senior we feel the clock ticking more than ever. Technically, this was her last summer with us before she graduates, but hopefully she’ll stick around next summer before she launches off to college.
Center Sister completed another session of summer dance classes & performances, accompanied me on a lot of work appointments, and spent nearly all her free time with a certain special friend-boy.
Little Man was selected to play on his baseball league’s summer Allstar team, which went on to win state and compete in regionals. He turned ten and took his special birthday trip with Daddy, and had several hangouts with his best buds.
Amidst all that, we bopped to the beach every chance we got, took a special family trip north to Alaska, utilized our community pool membership exactly 22 times, and enjoyed the state fair, among other adventures.
Though we’ll miss the freedom, fun, and adventure summer affords us, we’re ultimately glad to be back to the rhythm & routine of fall. Until next year!
