We made it to fall! While we didn't get to experience a true Midwest summer, I think it's set us up to have a pretty great one next year!
We finally finished restoring the wood floors in both bedrooms and our hallway. It was a lot of work, but so worth it now that it's done.
There have been a lot of changes for the English household this month. Cooper isn't handling them so well.
Our recent trip home made me realize how much I took for granted when we lived there. Don't take anything for granted. You might miss it one day.
We had just a few too many not so fun things happen to us at our last couple of concert experiences...
Two weekends later and we finally have finished hardwood floors in our main living area! Next, we tackle the rest of the house.
