In a way it's hard to believe that September is already here,
but in another way it seems that August was a very long month.
Life seems to be going by fast...
i n s l o w m o t i o n.
That doesn't make very much sense,
but it's a feeling that is hard to explain.
Here's my month of August highlights!
We went to a Diamondbacks game.
The kids earned free tickets through
our library's summer reading program.
My brother came along with us. =)
Jacob celebrated his 8th birthday.
He made his own pinata with the help
of his sister and neighbors.
We ended up having a kid party,
a family party, and a party with the families we fellowship with.
I don't know how all that happened,
but it did, and that's all that matters. ;-)
The kids and I continued our 50 state unit study.
We covered Arkansas, Arizona, and California.
We spent lots of time in the kitchen making
a recipe for each of the states we studied.
Allison took her first dip in the pool!
I wasn't sure if we'd do that this year,
but it seemed like the right moment last week
and it's always cute to see a baby in the pool with a diaper. =)
I was able to spend some time crafting this month!
Here's one of the cards I made. =)
What was one of your highlights from last month?
