We had a fun summer.  A quick summer, but enjoyable.  I think the fact that I now have a school-ager made the summer seem to go by faster.  The last few summers we were still on vacation around the time school was starting this year.

Here is a little rundown on how our summer went...

June: Auntie Keesha got married. The kids LOVE Uncle Scottie. KJ graduated from pre-school.  We celebrated Luke's birthday, he turned 3. Wow! The kids had fun having water fights and playing with eachother.  Father's day! We had a photo session to put gifts together for Dad and Papa. No big trips (that I can remember).


July: 4th of July with family. Lainee turned 4!  We took a trip to Ocean Shores to celebrate her birthday and while we were there, we had a joint party with KJ too since we weren't sure if we'd make it back for his birthday this month.  The kids had a blast at the ocean, they always do.  We enjoyed family time, the beach, swimming, playing in the sand, playing on the playground and roasting marshmallows.  Another big happening in the month of July was the arrival of a new cousin, Ruth Abigail.  She came right at the end of the month and we just adore her!


August:  We had more of a relaxed month. We start preparing for school, playing around here and enjoying the end of summer.  We celebrated Colton turning one! Papa also had a birthday as did Grandma. I enjoyed getting gifts ready for them.  I also had a big month in that I photographed my second (first was Keesha's) wedding.  I've realized it is a lot of work, A LOT of work and I'm not quite sure I'll be doing another one soon but the couple was lovely and wonderful to work with.
Now, here we are in September.  The start of school.  KJ's 6th birthday coming up.  Some exciting news, we finally closed on the loan for our house.  We actually began building a couple months ago but things should really start picking up now that we have more money to back it. haha ;) Be looking for progress pics, I'll keep you all posted.
