August 2016 can be summed up in one word: Milestone
Some of these milestones include:
We had tickets to the HOF Game and it was cancelled for the first time in history.
Pete and I celebrated 10 years a wedded bliss with a vow renewal in our backyard.
We sent our youngest child off to kindergarten.
Claire decided on her future career as a cashier at Kohls (see picture below).
August started with Pete dropping the kids off at my mom's while he went back to Purdue to have a Guy's Weekend with a lot of his old college friends. He had a great time and I was able to be very productive with an empty house. When they got back, we headed to a restaurant with our good friends Matt and Erin only to see on television that the HOF game (where we were heading) was cancelled due to field conditions. We were disappointed but like all good friends - we were able to have a fun night going to the movies and grabbing a few drinks.
Jake and Bently (cousin) - best of friends with matching soccer shirts!
It's hard to see but we caught a rainbow one evening and tried to get in a picture with it
Claire's first day of third grade -
