As I try to think back to August, I don't think it was too memorable for us. Although as I type those words memories are suddenly flowing back, so maybe I'm wrong after all. We spent the majority of our days playing outside in the summer heat, but we also took our first family trip to the State Fair. Yes, you read that right. For the first time in Mason's life, and the first time in Byron and my eight years together, we have never gone together to the fair. It's like an Iowa sin, I'm sure.
We did get the chance to zip up to our home away from home, Michigan, to meet up with my family to celebrate an uncle's wedding. It was a chance to see all my relatives and some of our friends, too, in a very short amount of time.
Finally, August marked a big milestone for us as far as our adoption goes. Yes, we are still hoping that adoption is in the future for us, but we say that now knowing ultimately that whatever happens is in the Lord's hands.
The rest of the year flew by. We would soon be celebrating back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. At home, we are already starting to look ahead to what the new year will bring. But for now, I still have a few more months to recount.
