Summer in Review

I can't believe in 2 weeks the kids will be headed back to school, time has flown by these past 3 months. We have had a great summer, enjoying more time with our family, now that we are closer. This week the kids and I are headed to Minnesota for some doctor appointments and to spend some time with our friends. To say we are excited is an understatement! I can't believe it has been almost 4 months since we have been there. Looking forward to some Caribou Coffee, time with friends and to attend a worship service at Westwood. The kids are excited to spend some time with their friends. God richly blessed us while we were in Minnesota with such wonderful people. I remember thinking while living there that it never felt like home, but now heading back I think it was definitely home to us!

The kids have spent a lot of time at the local aquatic center and it has been wonderful for Trinity. She wheels right into the water with no obstacles. I love watching her at the pool, so independent! Trinity also cut 8 inches off her hair to donate. We've had some visitors from Alaska, Northern Iowa and Minnesota. In a week we will camp with my parents at the Iowa State Fair and I'm sure we will indulge in some very fattening food! That will basically end our summer before school starts.

Thursday and Friday, Trinity has some appointments at Gillette. They will check her back (growing rod) and she has some tests for urology. She's had a lot more frequent UTI's, so praying that we find some answers.

Here are some photos to recap our summer, hope you have enjoyed your summer too!!
