Summer Fun

As August is also passing by here, I'm feeling that this Summer as a whole has flown by.

We just celebrated David's first birthday. The party was so much fun, despite the rain that crept in after 30 min. of pool time. Our car was loaded with gifts from friends and family.

We'll be retuning to Naperville this weekend for Brock and Lindsay's goodbye party. They will be moving to Pasadena, CA. Lindsay will be working for Price Waterhouse Cooper, the Accounting Firm, and Brock will be studying Engineering through to PHD at Cal Tech. I love those smartie pants.

In reflection... this summer is really the last of it's kind. I've had my dearest of friends and family near this summer. Many of them will be moving and a great loss will be felt. We have already said goodbye to multiple close families this past year. At the same time, we do value the friendships that are still near and understand that this is an opportunity to grow.
