Is it really time to go back to school? I feel like it’s still the end of May and we are just preparing for summer! It’s been a while since I’ve been here. The absence has meant that life has been full. We’ve shot some hockey videos, some Super Summer videos, slept in college dorm rooms, packed, unpacked and packed again, not just suitcases, but lots of video equipment, worked at Super Summer, taken Baylor to volleyball camp, taken Caed to band competitions, and so much more! Our family has traveled to Albuquerque, Austin, Abilene, Brownwood, back to Austin, Belton, back to Abilene, Lubbock, San Antonio, and then to Artesia, New Mexico! We’ve caught up with old friends and met some new people along the way!

Here are some fun/not-so-fun highlights from our summer adventures:

Our suburban rolled over the 100,000 mile mark. That’s a lot of miles and memories in 7 years!

We introduced our friends, Kody and Lucas to Allsup’s burrito’s! While they enjoyed their new treat, Brook crawled all over the pavement in a futile attempt to pet feral cats…

In mid-July we shot a hockey training video that required me to wear warm winter boots and a heavy jacket! These hockey coaches are amazing! This Texas girl might just become a hockey fan!

Baylor attended a Volleyball camp at the University of Texas. She loved it, but my little tender-hearted player was appalled that the coaches would treat them so harshly! 😉

Ate cinnamon roll pancakes at our favorite diner every time we were home this summer!

Went swimming every time we had a chance!

Poor Caed learned a hard lesson while flying the drone – It’s best to have a spotter when operating the drone so you don’t fly them into light poles!

Watched grown men act like teenagers as they hurled dodge balls towards each other.

Took James to the emergency room at 2:00 in the morning for excruciating shoulder pain. Going to Schlitterbahn with the family isn’t the same as it was when he was 10 years younger! 🙂

These were some of the fun/not-so-fun memories. We look forward to Fall every year because it is our season of rest. Our travels are done and life becomes full of school functions, sports, homework and looking forward to what God for us in the next year!

This is usually what our Fall season looks like:
