And so we begin to enter the bus driver phase of our lives. I’m careful here saying “entering” because I know we are just on the tip of it! I recall other moms always saying babies are super busy because they need you for everything, but at least you are home! I’ve kept these words close and have been in no rush to jump into my bus driver seat – but I think we are quickly headed towards this phase. Luckily it will slow down again as sports seasons and activities end, but here is what it’s looking like right now…

So here’s to great summer memories and a beautiful fall! I’ll have to keep all these fun memories top-of-mind to power through winter. Which is great through December. Then you have January, February and March to deal with!
took the kids mini golfing for the first time this summer. SUCCESS!
I had a trade show in Indianapolis this summer, really pretty city!
This summer will likely be known as the summer of the "ban"- that's what Olivia calls it. Keith will remember it more as the summer without A/C.
So we did a slip-and-slide kick ball party this summer. Super fun, everyone brought their A game and things escalated. No onsite injuries, but a broken rib was reported back and Keith possibly injured his shoulder. He went to the doctor - no long-term concerns. It may be back next summer.
We did a little movie outside too - and the rain came pouring down about 10 minutes after the movie ended. So fun! Can you see why I love, love, love summertime.
This is how she ends most parties... hot mess!!!!
We love a visit to Ames and the kids love these cy statues.
This girl loves wearing my shoes.
Love having lots of girls in the neighborhood.
I hope all of you had a great summer!!!

So my boys only have a few more days of being SIX! Really? How is this possible, it seems like I was just bringing them home from the hospital. I feel like once they are seven, they will no longer be "little" boys. Just like every other year, the year has been jam-packed....
