What a busy summer it’s turned out to be! I shouldn’t be surprised, really. August is always a really crazy month for us. We have lots of family birthdays and gatherings, perform at festivals, and Dryst’s summer soccer season ramps up.
On one level I’m really disappointed that we’re not heading off on our road trip at the end of the month (finances and a dead car caused us to cancel). But in another way, it will be nice to have more time close to home as summer starts to wind down. Some folks will be heading back to school, and we’ll be hitting the beach. I’m hoping for a warm and sunny month!
