As the summer is drawing to a close, I find myself thinking back about everything we've experienced in the past few months.
My Monkey turned 2 in June.
We got chickens (we've recently purchased an additional 2).
I nearly burst.
Instead, I had a successful VBAC and brought our wonderful Little Man into the world.
We then had 5 blissful weeks to spend as a family while T was on paternity leave.
We went to the ocean,
We went to the fair!
We went to the lake,
And up high in the air!
Ok.. enough rhyming... ha
We also managed a night at camp and wish we could have gone even more.
As great as the summer was, we've also been dealt some difficulties. My Pepere's Alzheimer's has progressed some more. My baby brother is in a rough patch. And my mom was just diagnosed with cervical cancer. Luckily it is Stage 0, so it's 100% treatable (we're just waiting for a consult to find out what the next steps are at this point). It's so very difficult to be 200 miles away and not able to do much more than listen on the other end of the phone....
But we thank God for the good and pray he helps us through the bad and continue to live life as full as we can.
