Oh August…

August was a crazy month.  We knew it would be from the beginning-- August is a month filled with birthdays in our family, Jason was coming “home” from his mission in the middle of the month, and we added a family vacation with Ken & Alisyn because that’s when we could do it. I thought it was it would be a great month.

And it was amazing.

But wow.  Just as much as the month was filled with the most wonderful things, it also ended up having a lot of really difficult things in it as well.  As I thought back over the month I realized how full the whole month was.  A real Charles Dickens month—it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  I made a calendar so that in the years to come we can remember just how crazy August was.

(The good things are green, the bad things are red, and the neutral are left black.)


  1. What was the last ER trip/stay in the hospital about? What a month?!?

  2. In Chile they have a saying about "making it through August." In South America, August is usually the coldest month of the year, so if you make it through August you're probably going to survive the rest of the year too.

    Congrats, mom--you made it through August!
