Mid August

On August days when the skies cleared of smoke Addy and JJ enjoyed activities outside. They are really mastering their bicycle skills.

Our daughter-in-law and four of our nieces enjoyed several days in Maui celebrating Melissa’s 40th birthday in style. She’s a beach girl through and through so this was an appropriate destination for the celebration. An amazing ‘cousin’ time.

Addy’s week of VBS culminated with a short program Friday night for parents and Addy thinks that VBS was great!

Our daughter Katie and Andrew were in New York over this past weekend for the wedding of one of Andrew’s Marine buddies. Andrew was in the wedding. This wedding was supposed to happen a while back but then the you know what postponed it. They had a wonderful time celebrating outside of Albany, New York.

My last follow-up cataract appointment is on Tuesday. I’m looking forward to ordering some glasses on that day. The other thing we are looking forward to on Tuesday is a major cooling down and some rain in the forecast, too. Hoping for clear skies on Wednesday with some new fires getting contained.

What does your week look like?

  1. Give yourself some time before getting eye glasses. My Dr. said +125 over the counter for reading. For distance you may not need glasses. Like your photos & comments.

  2. Lots of great photos of family gatherings. Very heartwarming and the little ones are adorable! I hope your last cataract appointment goes well and I know you will enjoy your cooler weather. I’m looking forward to that too 🙂

  3. Love Addy’s enigmatic smile. Glad that she enjoyed VBS. My week is looking pretty pleasant weather wise. So good that things are looking up there, as well.

  4. So many smiles while reading this post! There are exciting and happy things happening in your world! Oh my . . . I know that you all must be eager for that cool down and the rain that is coming!

  5. Darling photos of your grands riding their bikes! I too am looking forward to cooler temperatures. Our humidity has been brutal, but we have had tons of rain. I do hope and pray the rain comes to control those awful fires.
