Summer Break almost over

Man, you turn 40 and have no time to blog LOL. No, I haven't slowed down- "August" just happened. What an eventful month it's been... 2 birthdays in the family, Family Reunion, Josh starting tackle football (yikes), Nick getting his learners permit (frightening;), last "official" boating trip, and Sophie and Sage enjoying every bit of it.

It's been a wonderful summer and the girls have made it that much better! It has been thrilling to give them opportunities and watch them learn and grow. Tomorrow marks the year of our referral date for our girls. I'll never forget the day...
"We celebrated with family and friends and everyone was so happy for us. The next day, after sharing the news at work (school), it hit me on my way home, and I couldn't hold back the tears of joy. I am so grateful!!!"

They have truly been a blessing...

Josh's surprise party...

What a fun kid!
