August is over and Evan came up with a brilliant plan to get through the last few days of it.  The last week of August includes Jake’s deathiversary, my birthday and my grandfather’s (there are a few family wedding anniversaries in there too).

Evan planned a trip and we went away.  My parents were able to join us.  We usually do go away Labor Day weekend to see my grandfather for his birthday.  Our whole family for many Labor Day weekends has come together to celebrate his birthday.  I know that I am so lucky to have spent so many birthdays with my amazing grandfather.  However, this year there was no trip to see him to look forward to, so I had to find other ways to distract myself.

Evan’s plan worked like a charm and these 2 helped as well. . .

  5. So glad you had a good time! You should plan a similar trip each year over Labor Day weekend so you have something fun that you can look forward to each year!

  6. Hurrah for a successful family outing! How nice that you could have three generations enjoy the fun.
    Now I imagine that school’s on for Fletcher and Alyssa and I wish for a happy, productive and rewarding year.
    Happy New Year to your whole family. Be healthy and stay that way.
    Love, Cornelia

  7. It’s nice when a new month brings a bit of renewal, and it looks like you guys had some fun during a hard time! Sorry we didn’t get to speak with you on your birthday–hopefully you got our message!
