LATELY: JULY 2020

I am getting back into the habit of using my DSLR camera often and keeping it close by at all times. Hopefully, with that will come my desire to write more than captions. Maybe I’ll write letters again? Smaller posts throughout the month? As for this post, it will be long and just captions once more.

Maybe pushing her way over the barricade we used to keep her in the back.

Zack was gone for several days every week, and on occasion, the girls and I would join him.

I really miss watching them wander and explore around this yard. Probably more than they miss it.

On one of our trips to our old house, Mae and I snuck out and took a walk by our favorite river.

Rae found Grandpa Steve’s cowboy hats, and Vovo’s scarves and, well, isn’t she just the cutest.

We had a few movie nights while Daddy was away!

Mae got to try her hand at a paddle board. She was terrific at it. Do they make paddle boards for children? She would make good use of one.

We got a few steps closer in the dollhouse remodel! We have chosen paint colors, kitchen flooring, and backsplash. We’re really geeking out over it.

George found an empty basket. I can’t bring myself to fill it, but if he continues to jump out just as I walk by, it will find things to fill it with real soon.

Mae picked up Teaching Children Responsibilities at a book sale (and was beyond giddy about it). It has charts, checklists for chores and such, as well as cards to help get responsibilities organized.

This gem found its way into the trash can the moment we walked in the door.

I couldn’t help but smile…dig it out of the trash and photograph it…

On our final trip to our old house (for July, we still have to go back in August), the girls and I took a break from painting and tried to take a hike. We got stuck in a down pour, which was so fun, but we didn’t get to hike as long as we had hoped.

We didn’t plan on celebrating the fourth but ended up going over to Seth’s (Zack’s brother), setting off fireworks, and releasing paper lanterns.

We were about to video call my older brother and chit chat about life.

Dave survived the month (and so far so good for this month as well…)
