Wow did this summer go fast on Mission Road Homestead! Here it is, the very end of August and I realized I hadn't posted since June. Busy living life and that is OK. Having older kids and a baby keeps you hopping for sure.
Josiah is now an official Boy Scout and loving it! He was thrilled to get to march in the 4th of July parade with his troop. I think this is a good fit for him.
We added baskets to this "catch all" space on the buffet and replaced the mirrors with a fun clock and chalkboard for homeschooling. I love this space now, especially the red counter!
Michael and I actually had time to play a game of cribbage in the camper that night. Michael lost even though Rina was doing her best to tell him which cards he oughta throw.

Never thought we'd have a baby on our 20th wedding anniversary trip, but it was fun and we are blessed!
We celebrated Hailey's birthday a little early this year so that Michael could be there for it, since he had drill on her birthday weekend. Hailey dressed Rina up in all the birthday gear I got for Hailey. We kept it simple and invited family and friends to join us at the water park.
Hailey got enough money that she was able to buy her own Kindle Fire. It has been a great homeschooling tool and leverage (if you know what I mean).
Last but not least, Michael was promoted to Warrant Officer I! We are so proud of him as he has worked hard for this.
I'll be posting about our August soon (I hope). We've already started homeschooling, so time is always of the essence!
