August was a fantastic month! From beginning to end, it was filled with fun, family and lots of adventures. And I am so pleased to be able to participate in the 6 on the 6th Blog circle again this month! With the whirlwind of activity, its a commitment for all of us, but don’t forget to head on over to check out the amazing work of Cynthia Valdez as she shares her Summer with us!
We had a family reunion with one side of the family (you can check out more of those adventures here and here) and then a visit from Grandaddy Ted to see us was a major highlight! The kids enjoyed ‘teaching’ reading and math!
I also had the chance to look at my city in a new way! This is near the train station in Newark, New Jersey… and I just loved the lines. I am enjoying exploring black and white more – creating more ways to look at the area I’ve lived in for a number of years.
August also meant the opportunity to take a girls trip to Miami – it was not restful by any stretch, but certainly restorative! Amazing how some time to be someone other than “Mommie” can re-energize you. As they say however, “What happens in Miami, stays in Miami!” so I will share one shot I took at Wynwood. It’s a wonderful arts district and has a series of murals by very talented artists that seem magical – especially at night (which is when we made it)!
And finally – I have to say August was so much fun in terms of times with my little ones! One adventuresome day with no babysitter yielded lots of laughs (take a look), but we surely had time to spend together, talk and I love how they are growing, being and becoming!
