Like most good things, our summer passed far too quickly. It was one that was restful in some ways and busy in others. Steve was kept very busy, so our vacations were only short weekend jaunts.Kait landed her first job as a barista at Starbucks. I also had minor surgery, that ended up sucking up a lot of my valuable summer time. All in all, it was good to be home with my kids and be together. Here are some of our highlights.
*Maddy spent a lot of time on the field with her first year in select soccer.*Jacob backpacked a lot this season. He completed a 5 day trip on the Tahoe Rim Trail through a wilderness education program. *Steve worked a lot! *Kait got her first job and finished her first year of driving with no tickets or accidents 🙂 *Angela read a lot and prepped for a full fall semester. *Sophie swam and became a strong reader. *We celebrated my brother’s wedding in Fallon, NV. *Steve and I celebrated our 18th anniversary in Napa. *Our family camped, hung out with friends, gardened, enjoyed some beach days, and loved the strangely mild weather in Sacramento.
