A Month In Pictures – August
Another month – so many more pictures. I had the camera out quite a bit this month. Not for long shoots, but just to catch random day-to-day occurrences. I know this sounds depressing, but I keep thinking that these kids won’t be small, cute, and funny for very long. (And thank goodness for that from a discipline/parenting point of view. Whoever thought it would be easy to raise good kids? It’s tough.) Anyhow. I try to get pictures when they’re being them. Which means they’re not always the best ‘styled’ pictures. But they’re my kids. You know?
We had a super busy month. It just kept getting busier, trying to stuff as much as we could (mostly as much as I could) into getting the most out of the warm summer season. I’m still trying to squeeze summer things in.
We did ALL. The. Things.
We hung out at church camp on and off for two weeks, had beach picnics, playground dates, made lots of food, decorated a few cakes, jumped on the trampoline forever and a day, went to a wedding. It seemed like we were gone every evening. Which was fantastic. Part of me is happy it’s coming to a more scheduled end. The rest of me is screaming, and bucking at the idea of having an organized anything.
I think I’ve mentioned before, we are starting to homeschool Cael this fall, starting next week. So the scheduling is starting to become real. He’s super pumped, and I’m excited and nervous. But I think it’ll be good. They scary part is trying to school with two littles. And the fact that his education is in my hands. I’ll update on how that’s going…
So, this is the final hurrah to August. Not to summer. We still have a few weeks left of that. Get it straight, eh? I’ll do a last hurrah to summer next month. 😉 And a welcome dance to leggings and long sleeved shirts. And lattes. (Though, who in their right mind really gives those up over summer? NOT ME!)
**Jude decided he wanted hot cocoa in the middle of August. I’m down with cocoa any time of the year. He had the best hot cocoa mustache going on.
**We had to take some chill time – movie and popcorn time!
**My handsome (but grumpy-looking/he doesn’t like pictures) hubby and I at a beautiful wedding.

**Cael – how he’s starting school is beyond me. My handsome oldest dude.
