We are aware of some things that September holds for us and we aren’t naive enough to think we know all that it holds.
My mom’s life is still in the balance.
Here are some things we are looking forward to…
A milestone birthday for Dear on September 9th.
This photo is from 2006 in Conwy, Wales taken by our friend Dave.
My parents 70th wedding anniversary.
(Technically they have already been married for 70 years since their wedding in Iran was in mid summer but the official date on their U.S. papers says September 13th)
This photo of my parents was taken in 2006 in Dallas during our celebration of Leonard and Mandy’s marriage.
A milestone trip to England with our son Josh and DIL Laura from September 12th thru the 23rd.
We know we’ll be seeing so many wonderful sites. I’m so excited to be going again with a digital camera this time. It will be Josh and Laura’s first time there. EXCITED!
Some of the planned events are:
Going to Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester for the Manchester United ~ Crystal Palace soccer game on Saturday the 14th.
A night in the Cotswolds.
This was taken in the Cotswolds in 2004. Can you see why I’m excited to go back with a digital camera?
Lacock Village and the Abbey on our way to stay in Wells. If any of you watched Cranford and Return to Cranford they were filmed in this village along with other scenes from other well known favorites. The Abbey was used to film some scenes in a couple of the Harry Potter movies.
A night in Wells so we can explore the cathedral and walk around the castle moat.
3 nights in Southwest Cornwall doing whatever we decide to do which will include hikes to the beach and St. Michael’s Mount.
Ending our trip with a weekend in London where we have rented an apartment home near Portabello Road. We will try to get in as many landmark London sites as possible and hope to be able to also see a play or musical.
Other things to look forward to in September after our trip are:
Day trip adventures with our daughter Katie while she is living with us for this new season which may or may not include tea. I’m also going to take advantage of Katie’s technical skills to help me hook up our new slide and photo scanner and for her to help me learn to use it!
Starting up our weekly Small group meetings again.
Our Fall Women’s Bible Study at church.
What are you looking forward to in this month of September?
