August Already...

It's been a fast summer full of trips, laughter, learning, friends, family and much more.  The only thing we have missed out on this summer is sleep.  :) A year ago when we started this journey I had ideas of what it may feel/be like to have children/babies in our home but it's so much better than I imagined.  Yes, it may take us an extra 20 minutes to get out of the house and I get 3 hours less sleep a day but it doesn't compare to the blessings we get.  I am so grateful that God has allowed us to be apart of these children's life and for them being in ours.  Here are just a few of the fun things we did this summer.....swimming, Ranger games, playing at the park, chuck e cheese (which by the way was the worst pizza), reading together, learning to smile and laugh (the baby of course), the circus, traveling to see family and lots and lots of laughing!!!

It hasn't been without it's hard times.  We have also had many tears, time outs, fits, being ran away from, and communication difficulties.

As we wind down our summer I am looking forward to school starting.  Our oldest will be going to school for half a day and the littlest one and I will be hanging out the house have lots of girl talk!  And as strange as it may sound I look forward to back to school shopping for the boys in the house, parent/teacher meetings, school trips, making school lunches, signing notes and all that goes with having a child in school.   So as August arrives I am both saddened that a great summer is coming to an end yet excited about the next journey we get to take with our little ones.
