This month has successfully kicked my butt. Thanks, July! You can stop now.
Ball season is over. Vacation Bible schools and summer camps are over. Swimming lessons? Were over before they were even over. The baby is getting huge and especially strong. And we had family come up, which was wonderful on so many levels.
Caleb’s brother, his wife, and their son spent almost an entire week with us. They left yesterday afternoon, but not before helping my gimp husband make some much-needed headway on the house. We now have siding, trim, and beautifully manicured grounds:
Of course I love spending time with family I haven’t seen in forever. Caleb’s brother Jason looks amazing with a beard. My nephew Joey somehow looks like a young man who’s almost ready for college. My sister-in-law Sam is still kicking ass and taking down names after her crazy epic bus-meets-motorcycle-on-the-highway accident from 2 years ago. We worked, we walked, we shopped, we ball-gamed, and we birthday-partied. It was a good week that went by way too fast.
