Trying to soak in as much time as possible with these little kiddos before they ship off to California! I might have shed a few tears just thinking about it. My brother-in-law has joined the Navy (yay!) and they'll all be heading out to Monterey by the end of the year (boo!). It still hasn't quite sunk in that come next year, they won't be a short ten minute drive away. It's just an excuse to head to the coast for vacation, right?
Dad officially retired a couple weeks ago, and the parentals have been back and forth between here and Houston a couple times in the last month or so, with one more trip planned at the end of the month. I couldn't be any happier for Dad! He's worked so hard, and I think he's rather liking the retirement lifestyle so far!
Life is busy. Life is good. Enjoying the last bits of summer.
