aaah, August has been a bit of a whirlwind. Here’s some snapshots of the month.
My trip to Dallas.
My son’s 9th birthday (again, all about legos and star wars!).
New haircuts and two missing teeth – just in time to start Kindergarten next week!
And witnessing God protecting us from this. We’ve known this tree had to come down for about a year and a half now, but we thought it would take a strong storm to topple it. This happened in the space of about 20 minutes on Monday when I took the kids to drop off our books at the library – and we didn’t even go in – we just dropped them in the book return! And there was no storm – no wind – just a light rain. Thanking God for his protection. The tree will be cut down in the next few days and I am quite sad about it. It provides us so much shade in the summer!
And these photos don’t even include the excitement over my husband being in the hospital for three days! Thank you to some of you who noticed my prayer request and contacted me to make sure everything was ok. He is home from the hospital and doing fine now. It was a combination of things – a new medicine and him not consistently taking some of his regular meds – that made him quite sick. But he is stable right now and has an appointment with a specialist next week. Thanks again for your prayers.
Next week will be quite a transition week for us – my oldest will be starting middle school (in the public school system), my son will have a new teacher for 4th grade, and my youngest will be starting kindergarten. So I will be at home, alone. It has been 11 1/2 years that I have had a preschooler at home, so this will be quite a change. I am equal parts excited and sad.
