#103 - Personal Update


Lowering Money

2021 (namely the last two months) has been an adventure thus far.

  • In less than a month's time, from June 26th to July 21st, we spent over 100 hours in the car as we went to Florida for the in-law's vacation and then shortly thereafter to Colorado and then Yellowstone/Grand Teton’s. Most people ask how Wesley did during that span. All things considered, he honestly did great. Despite the time in the car and spending six straight nights in a tent, he only had a couple more outbursts than Allie.

  • Wesley turned two. We had a themed "Two Fast" party complete with racing flags and Hot Wheels.

  • I became the proud uncle of two more nieces. This brings the total number of nieces and nephews to 17.

  • We were able to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. At his dinner, we were supposed to come dressed like him (see below). He doesn’t actually look like Mario so not sure how successful I was.

  • I took a road trip with my grandma back to Kirksville, MO where I have a lot of roots. The occasion was for a funeral and therefore not a fun one but I enjoyed the time spent with my grandma and meeting distant family.

As for what is upcoming, I am looking forward to the leaves changing color and some caramel apple cider. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Also, I have a 15k trail run coming up in just a week's time and have made it a goal to win a 5k this year (may be a little too ambitious). I shared some highlights above but I know life isn't always a fun adventure. I can attest to that but I can also attest that God gives us what we need for every situation and that he is faithful. I hope you are able to experience his goodness this fall.
