A Month of Good-Byes
The good-bye parties have started. On Saturday we went out to dinner with some good friends. Last night we had a small good-bye get together with a few of our neighbors on the front lawn.
Slip-n-slide, water table, food, and grass = a nice Sunday afternoon. I'm in denial of the farewell part. I have a hard time saying good-bye to people that are important to me.
Our neighborhood has been a huge blessing especially when Jared's had long, hard rotations where we hardly see him. These neighbors gather outside almost daily in the evening while the kids ride bikes and throw balls.

Next door neighbor, Jessie. Everyday this school year at 7:20 I'd get this text from Jessie's dad, "Does Marley need a ride today?" Between Jake and Luke's sleep schedules, most days the answer was "Yes please". So grateful for great neighbors.

Buddies. We're going to miss this little guy.
I'll take these 2 with me. :)
