8/12

A photo of my little man, once a month, on the last day of each month, in 2016

Reece, what a month August was. It was full of fun, laughter, and time, time to do what we wanted, when we wanted. Swimming was definitely the highlight of your month. From swimming lessons with your favourite instructor, to lake swims, and pond swims, it was hard to keep you out of the water. You are fearless in the water, and the smile on your face when you are in the water melts my heart.

We spent a lot of time with friends, hanging out at the lake, at our home, and in the woods. It felt good to just hang out, and enjoy time with our friends. It was carefree and fun.

And talking fun, what fun we had playing mini golf, and riding the go carts. Your first time ever, and mine too, on a go cart. We had so much fun, and laughed so hard as we raced around the track. I promised you we would go back again, and I will keep that promise, we are going go carting again tomorrow.

As we say good bye to August, my heart is full and happy that we were able to slow down this month and just focus on us. It was the perfect way to end the summer, but I think I can say we are both ready to sink into our fall rhythm, and get back to our "normal" day to day.

Thank you, little man, for the very best summer to date. I love you more than you will ever know, and I am so very happy we soaked up summer the way we did.

    2. I get that. Xman's hair more than half its way down his back and he always worries when I just trim it!

  3. It sounds like you both had an incredible August! And goodness, does he look so grown up here!

    We're ready to sink into our autumn rhythm too. And we are very hopeful that Mother Nature will give us a more normal season than we've seen for the last few.

    Have a wonderful September, my friend! xo
