The end of August means summer is going to be over soon. And I am always ready for it to end. Don't get me wrong, I love the sunshine, the swimming, less schedules, going to bed later, walks at night because the sun is still out....but I also LOVE fall. It's my favorite time. I get to settle in like a hibernating bear and enjoy the kids at school, baking, more time to read and prepare for the quietness of winter. My very sweet mother-in-law found me an elliptical trainer, so it will offset the extra calories from all the baking nicely...
Anyways, what was I talking about? Yes, on to August and the last week. My two big brothers both came for a visit this summer-I was so lazy and got no pictures of Rob's stay in July, but here are some of Sean and Chinatsu's stay. Hannah really loves Chinatsu-talked her ear off the entire time-make that we ALL loved having Chinatsu come with Sean. The family vote is that we would all like there to be a wedding invitation in the mail very soon.
Mike celebrated turning 35 (!), and Hannah is losing teeth faster than I can blink.
