Summer 2019 is in the books. Well, basically anyway. It’s still pretty hot here in Texas, but the summer months are officially over and cooler weather is in sight.
Today I just wanted to share a “summer-in-review” post. It’s fun for me to look back at the last few months and I hope it will be fun for you too.
Highlights from this summer
A big highlight for Caleb this summer was attending our church’s VBS for his first time. He was just a month away from turning five so our church let him join the five year old group. He LOVED it and I am super grateful to his kind leader who very patiently helped him stay with the group haha.
Caleb and Lucas both had birthdays in July. Caleb turned five and Lucas turned one. We had a fun birthday party for them with extended family at a local splash park. So much fun!
A fun visit
My wonderful aunt came to visit us in July. She was able to be here for the boys’ birthdays and the fourth of July which was so nice!
We didn’t go on an actual vacation this summer, but a highlight for all of us was a trip to Hawaiian Falls waterpark a few weeks ago. My sister Julia came along as well so there was an equal adult to kid ratio which is always nice haha. Pablo and I honestly had the BEST time just watching our kids enjoy themselves.
This might seem like an odd thing to mention as a summer highlight, but we have been so grateful for Pablo’s job this summer. We went through a rough time at beginning of this year but God provided a job for Pablo with a wonderful company in the late spring and we are so grateful.
Pablo has also been having fun teaching a little on the side with VIPKID and I just signed my second contract with them as well!
Growing my blog
This blog has always been such a fun hobby for me, but this summer I’ve been able to see it grow to the point where it is also making a side income. I’m over the moon excited about that because it’s been my dream to help my family out in this way (and also it’s nice to be able to justify the hundreds of hours I’ve spend on this “hobby” haha!)
Here are a few favorite pictures from this summer. Check out my Instagram for a whole lot more! 🙂
