It is the end of August..
The end of August! This month just flew by.
It's the beginning of another week. Today marks the first day of a road trip for Gage's Mom, Grandparents, and younger brother Brad! They will be on the road for 4-5 weeks. For those of you who know Brad and are interested in reading Brad's travel blog, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll give you the link!
While they are gone I will be taking over Brad's weekly paper route. He delivers the local shopping news once a week to 3 different neighborhoods. This will tie in great with my walking plan!
Gage is continuing with his school, tutoring other students, homework, and working. The first couple weeks of school are always the most difficult to get through. It's hard to adjust to him being so busy. There is a light at the end of the tunnel this year though! He will graduate, get a job, and then... we'll have to re-adjust to him working a full-time job haha.
Zoe's New Adventures:
- Many, many trips to the pantry to take out the Cheerios, find Mommy or Daddy, and say "CheeO? CheeO?"
- Climbing up and gracefully getting down from the couch. She decided that falling down head first was just not the way to go.
- She says well over 100 words now. I can actually somewhat have a conversation with her!
- Favorite things to say: "Awk" (Walk), "I see you!", "Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!", "Foo" (food), "Tissue", "Trash", "All duhh!" (All Done), "Daeee" (Daddy).
- She has started to announce when she needs a diaper change. We take this as the first indication that we need to get started on potty training soon!
Several days ago I read about the new Flip diaper system by Cotton Babies (the makers of BumGenius diapers). It's affordable, the d...

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
