Is it even worth it to try to catch up?

Life has been CRAZY.... although as I type this, I'm realizing that my last post (which was sometime back in July I think?) began the same way! So, one can only conclude that "Crazy" is the new "Normal". Either that, or we don't know how to effectively manage our time. Either way, I am struggling to keep up with everything in the manner in which I like to... (OCD anyone?) So, here (again) is a bombardment of pictures of our recent events....

FIRST AND FOREMOST... WE SOLD OUR CONDO!!! Whew! After 4 years, it finally happened! However, what really took us by surprise is how sad we were to leave it.
It was our first "home". So many memories.  Babies walking for the first time, graduating from college, first day of school pictures on the front porch, whisky barrel full of impatiens in the springtime... etc. I was not prepared for the emotions that would accompany the sale. Needless to say, it was a tough "Goodbye".
But, we move forward with life. Onward to our next home! (Stay tuned....)
Farewell Rosewood V.
Some of our last days....
Now, this was fun! Silver Lake Sand Dunes.... Now, to convince Tom to buy us a "RAZOR"!
My Uncle Tom and Aunt Janie gave us a Kirby Vacuum 22 years ago for our wedding.... It was time for  a new one.
Like the condo, I miss my old one.... but I LOVE my new one!
Beach Baby.... with Lulu & Gracie jumping in the background!
Salted Caramel Apples.... we made this little discovery while on a trip to Harbor Springs. Heaven.
Pool time.
Firs Day of 6th Grade. I've said it before and I'll say it again..... Where does time go? She is such a good girl. Too big too fast.
Lulu was asked to be on the "Safety Patrol" during the first week of school.... a week later she was asked to be a "Patrol Captain". Obviously she's a little more excited to be wearing the orange belt. (The note was written by her teacher at the end of the week)
My girl during "Spirit Week" at school. The themes were:
Monday: Decade Day (She chose 80's as her decade)
Tuesday: Western Day
Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday
Thursday: Blue Day (4th Graders wore White & 5th Graders wore Red)
Friday: Blue & Gold Day (School Colors)
The many Faces of The Dude.
Some of my favorite things....
We sold Molly.... Meet Venzi.
