As I lay here on the couch getting ready to settle into a long evening of college football I realized summer was all but over. I’m not sure if it was a high temp in the 70s or the sight of pumpkins all over our home that made me realize this but it was true.
Where do I begin? How about the beginning! GREAT IDEA! Coops summer was pretty great. We did the day care camp at the local YMCA and I think he really enjoyed it. He made some new friends and picked up some new skills. What new skills you ask? He mastered swimming and “The Floss”. The floss, if you know you know and your not surprised. Play times with pals and swimming with friends completed the summer.
Our summer family vacation was amazing as well. It was basically a 3 stop journey themed by baseball(I loved it). First stop was Cooperstown and the Hall of Fame. I think the whole family enjoyed it. Seen some stars, walked the hall and seen the sights. I was able to check that off my bucket list, hopefully we can go back someday.
Second stop was Boston. Walked the city, watched some street shows and took in a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Taking my Son to Fenway was great and hopefully he loved it as much as me. The Sox lost but the memories we made were amazing.
Then we headed to Cape Cod. First thing I would say about the Cape is it’s vastly underrated!!! It’s beautiful, and has everything you would want on a vacation and nothing you don’t! We watched some Cape Cod league baseball and hit the beach a bit. The weather was not great for swimming but it was perfect for everything else.
Coop started 1st grade a month or so ago and it’s unreal the growth we have seen out of him already. He is just getting so smart so quickly. He really makes me proud. I know he is going to have struggles but I think he is going to be able to work thru them just fine.
Oh and one more thing. Adoption, yea back on July 4th we meet a young lady and she agreed to let us raise her unborn baby boy. This has been a wildly emotional journey. We are super excited and can hardly wait to bring Baby Cash Jasper home. Hopefully everyone will be happy healthy and well adjusted in just a few short months. The blessings we have received are unreal. If you read this I would just ask for prayers for our family, Baby Cash and his Birth Mother. God has a plan and I can’t wait to see how we fit in.
I promise I will do better with posting. I’m sure adding Baby Cash to the mix will not effect how I post 🙄.
