My brother and his wife Michelle had their second baby, a boy named Nate, a couple of weeks ago. He is such a cutie and I am so excited to go and visit them and meet him in October!
We started homeschooling again on Monday, with Brad in kindergarten, Sky in 3rd grade, and Lila doing some preschool activities.
Brad was recently evaluated for speech and, thankfully, they gave me some take-home activities to do with him (no future appointments) and said that his speech development is withing the range of normal.
Ken has had orientation this week and starts teaching again on Wednesday. He will be teaching an overload this semester.
We hosted a BBQ for our home group last Friday. We will start meeting again every Friday starting in Sept. I'm looking forward to seeing how the Lord will work in our group this year!
One of my students from MVCA in Cincinnati will be a freshman at BIOLA this year so I'm hoping to connect with her sometime soon.
I will be speaking on a panel for MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) on the topic of organization this fall. Not sure I'm qualified but maybe I'll learn some new stuff in the process.
I am still on my weight loss journey although I seem to have hit a plateau and am a bit frustrated. I started wearing a pedometer so hopefully that will inspire me to move more and be more active.
We (meaning Ken) repainted the kids' rooms this summer. I'll probably blog about that at some point and include some pictures of the new colors. They turned out really well.
I guess that's all for this side of the country. Hope everyone is staying cool (it's been brutally hot here) and enjoying their last bits of summer.

Then the kids played pin the tail on Swiper.
