It seemed like a very short summer, at least to me. Well, the days dragged on and on while the weeks went by quickly. We finally went swimming at the beginning of August. It was short-lived because apparently the lake isn’t fun anymore? I don’t know. But it was a thing crossed off of our summer to-do list, so.
We went the fair, too. It was the last day, and it was hot and humid, so we didn’t stay long. Just long enough to get some donuts.
Avery turned 10. She was actually at her gramma’s house for her actual birthday, so she helped gramma make a cake and pick out her birthday card. All the kids were at gramma’s that week for Bible School. It was the first year they could all go together and they had a blast!
In June, we found out that their beloved Papa (my dad) would need a quadruple bypass and valve replacement. His heart wasn’t strong enough at the time to go into surgery, so he’s been on meds to hopefully strengthen his heart. We are hoping to get a surgery date sometime in September. The longer he waits, the worse it gets. (These are screenshots from Instagram. Sorry they look blurry!)
I’m going a little out of order, but mid-July, two out of the three kids went to Summer School. Can you tell Hannah was a little sad?
Lauren wrote a letter to her teacher telling her all the fun things she did this summer. Top of her list? Papa’s house and playing My Little Pony with her sisters.
Hannah’s excited, though she may not look like she is.
