August was hot, busy, and fantastic!! Beaches, ferry rides, new skills acquired. The children have continued to LOVE being here at Hamilton Hobby Farm, and while we were away for 10 days or so in Portland they were torn with being with Burkes and wanting to be back at the farm doing pony rides and doing chores. It’s great to be LOVIN’ YOUR LIFE! So many great places to be.
Hanging with the Burkes always brings out more creativity in our kids. As Mom I love to see what is nurtured in them, and Seth seems so at ease drawing it out of them.
Several days found us walking around Laurelhurst Park; finding shade from the heat, playing at the playground, snoozing on blankets under oak trees, walking around the duck ponds, spotting turtles.
Kids often say they don’t like maths or sciences but take them to engaging museums and it can change anybody’s attitude. Thanks to Seth a bunch of the kids had an exciting though exhausting day at OMSI where they learned while they had fun and built memories.
The purpose for out trip to Portland was for our special girl, Marin, who turned the magical age of TWO! Happy Birthday, Sweetheart.
Our visit in Portland was fantastic (more posts to come in the next few days) but all good things seem to come to an end. As has a wonderful month of August. Hard to believe this month is over but we are now entering my favourite month of the whole year. Yeah, tomorrow is SEPTEMBER!!
What will we accomplish this coming month?
