A very brief update via photo…

...and in amateur unedited photo at that...

It has quite literally been about 7 or 8 weeks since I’ve had any type of family update. I didn’t realize how long it had been until I looked back at my last post. We have done an immeasurable amount of things the past 2 months. First, I’ve been working my tail off and am still finishing school, trying to find a balance with the twin toddlers and running this house. Grass cut, trash out, house sanitized and picked up, kids cleaned, food stocked, food on the table… the list is endless but we’ve been making it work. It’s just taken a bit of rearranging and a nip out of all our sleeping schedules.

New things we’ve recently been up to – we were camping like wild people. We’ve traveled all over Missouri to the state parks and fished, fished, fished. Apparently there are hybrid bass now!? I caught a beautiful one at Big Lake State Park. What a stunning area! And we fell madly in love with the area surrounding the only county park we’ve ever visited, Longview Lake.

Golfing and a trip to Branson for the duck tour, butterfly museum, house of mirrors and the Dixie show are in the very near future. This past weekend we visited Pythian Castle, which was beautiful. We also started on Halloween décor thanks to the kids. They begged for a pumpkin really early so we’ve been carving and baking mini-pies and seeds.  We’ve been staying busy and enjoying our kids and the end of the summer.
