What I did on my summer vacation

MIA - sorry. It was a long, long summer. And not the "gee I hope summer lasts forever", but rather a "serenity now seriously what else can happen and good gosh it's hot" kind of summer.

In the spirit of the beginning of fall, I'll pay tribute to the good ol' "What-I-Did-On-My-Summer-Vacation" essay.

We took swimming lessons

We went to Childress for a family reunion, only to learn that we were the only family to RSVP, and the only family attending. So we played BINGO.

And grilled burgers in the 850 degree West Texas heat.

We went to San Antonio

We had friends over - and jumped hazardously on the trampoline

Cousin Josh came to dinner - they LOVE cousin Josh. He's awesome. And single, if you know any God-loving, Christ-following, cute early to mid-20's girls.

We had birthdays - first Preston, who turned 9.

Check out this cake. I taped his picture to the batter.

Bergen had a birthday. He turned 4.

Love this toot. He wanted everyone to blow those horns after we sang Happy Birthday while he blew out his candles. Wish granted.

And we started school.

Bergen started preschool.

Preston started 3rd grade. He has the most amazing teacher ever. So thankful!

Okay, so I went in reverse order. Oh well, I am happy to know what you guys were up to all summer! Things I love: that you were the only ones at the family reunion, the Perry t-shirts, those sweet boys and the new background on the blog - very fallish! So happy you're back!

I literally laughed out loud at my desk when I read "serenity now sort of summer."

Boy can we relate.
