Where did August go? In all honesty I must wonder where September has gone as well - full disclosure - as I type this post about August it is actually the last day of September.
As we settled in to our beautiful new home we found that in addition to the most wonderful place to live and grow, we also have the most amazing new neighbors!
Miles adores the "trick" that "Aunt Ann" taught him and has stripped half the Sassafras trees on the trail to toddler height as he picks the leaves to chew on the stems.
Ru started enjoying meals at the table with us in the high chair. No more bouncy, or Bumbo seat for this big boy! My baby is growing so fast, and this first year of his life has been an unbelievable one.
This has truly been a glorious summer, no matter the fact that there never seems to be enough time. One thing that has forced us to slow down and hug life just a little bit tighter is the fact that our dear Yia Yia Liz has become very ill. Right now there are not words to express all that I want to say...
...so I won't even try. I know we are all just thankful right now
to have the time and the opportunity to shower her with love.
Such a bright and beautiful light she is in the lives of so many!
