August 2016

August was pretty calm, which we loved.  It made jumping back into the school routine difficult!  :)  A few pictures from our month below...

Eli built an "airplane" in his room.  The pictures don't do it justice- it was really cute.  :)

Here he is at the "control panel."

Eli and I went to Northpark Mall one day to do a little shopping, have lunch, and see a movie.  It was a great "date" together!

We met some friends at Splash Kingdom one day before school started.  The kids had a blast riding ALL the rides- even the scary ones!  Eli has had a special connection with Victoria since Primer, but we haven't seen them in a while.  It was fun to see them pick right back up where they left off, and Victoria's mom and I had a great time catching up too.

 Here are Eli and Victoria coming off the end of the volcano slides.

Hank had his second birthday this month!  He got a giant bone as a present, and he was in heaven.  :) 

First day of THIRD GRADE!  Eli was super excited to go back to school.  We're so thankful for a great school, great teachers and faculty, and great friends for him there.

Ready to go!

And this was in the care on the way home one day last week- getting back into the school routine is exhausting!  :)  His lips are blue from a snow cone.  :)  

And that was August!  As much as I love fall, I am sad to see summer slip away.  We had such a great time this summer and made some wonderful memories.  I'm very thankful!
