Hello August

For the first time in seven years we are saying hello to August on this continent! Since 2008 we’ve been on school calendars that have us heading back to our overseas home before the first of August. Our new schedule has us leaving on August 12 for orientation and the school year starting on the 24th. That gives us almost two weeks to enjoy August in the PNW-at least in between last minute shopping trips and packing. I started the month enjoying a few days in Austin visiting family. Such a fun city. I can’t wait to go back! A few of my favorites from the trip…

Here’s what I am saying hello to this week:

Hello to returning to Seattle. It was fun to visit family in Austin for a few days!

Hello to one more week of camps-soccer for Noah and fairy camp for Stella.

Hello to laundry and list making. It’s all part of the deal 10 days out from our trip.

Hello to a few more trips of beach combing and s’mores making. The best parts of summer.

Hello to finishing up a few more books for fun. Finished this, onto this, and ready with this.

Hello to lazy cool mornings and endless cups of coffee.

What are you saying hello to this week?

Hello Mondays, inspired by Lisa Leonard’s beautiful posts, are a way to focus on the beginning of a new week, fresh start, and positive outlook.
