because blogs are cool.

I always knew I'd come back to my blog, which is why I never deleted it, but I didn't realize it would be this soon.
photo bombing goodness. 

For various reasons I've closed out most of my social media outlets and have definitely missed being able to write and post here. I know blogs are no longer "in style" and I get that actually reading something beyond a quick sentence or two is nearly impossible for people these days {thank you, Facebook}. I get that. I'm okay with it. I don't write on here for anyone but me, really, and have always been flattered when people actually take the time to keep up with us here.

we saw epic sunsets 


So pop in, pop out, never visit again, do your thing. I don't mind.
I can't promise weekly posts. I will definitely not post about every.little.thing we do, but I will keep updates coming.
Here's a quick one {including descriptions below pics}

We bought a new family car
went to CA for an almost month long visit
came home and celebrated the 4th of July
potty trained our youngest
went on lots of fun day trips with friends
enjoyed visits from out of town friends and family
celebrated Rachel's 8th birthday
went to VBS
In May we resigned from our church we've gone to since moving here to Washington and began the church hunt, which ended up being more 'fun' than we thought it would be. Great to meet new people, visit many churches in our area and to wait for God to say "this one".

We've had an amazing Summer, but we truly can't wait for Fall and Winter to get here. We're all excited about the formal school schedule starting and getting to see our Classical Conversation friends on a weekly basis!

the beach trail a few miles from our house. 

I post pictures of our daily lives on Instagram {eatsleepandrun} and will definitely post pics here. I'm keeping this blog locked down though to approved guests only. I wanna know who's lurking into our lives :)

you guys. c'mon. 

Grandpa & Grandma came for a visit! 

and we've played A LOT this summer. 

took this beauty the other night. I'll end with this. 

Its good to be back.
