our lasts of Summer in Ohio.

Sometimes when I'm sitting too still- little tears well up in my eyeballs.  That's why I'm trying to run myself ragged with tasks and friends and work!  How is it that time can move so quickly??  even when you feel like you've just had three of the hardest years of your life?!

Here is an overview of just a few of the things we've been doing.  I didn't even get any pics of the world cup USA game party we went to!  or kent's resident barbecue.

Ike has been begging for 's'mores at the millers' one more time before we head out.   These are those 'other millers' I'm always blogging about.  Such wonderful friends.  

It's amazing how living so far away from actual family can help you rely so heavily on other people to create a support system.  I have the MOST amazing group of friends that I consider family.  I would NOT have survived without them.  
 Metta is going to have MAJOR withdrawals when we move.  eek.  I'm sad for her.

Enjoying our favorite spots- and checking out all of the spots we never got around to!

This park in Beavercreek, OH- is pretty awesome.  Wax paper under your buns on this thing makes you go pretty insane fast!  even Kent had some fun!

Don't mind metta's ridiculous pig pants and tinkerbell top.  She's such a cat lady.


And some pics of the run from our house this past weekend.  Somehow there was a record LOW for temps on Saturday.  47 degrees when we started our run!  I REALLY wanted one last longish outdoor run before we left Ohio.  I have been running here for SEVEN years now.  I am going to miss the green and the rivers and the bridges SO MUCH.  these pics are just a couple miles from our house!
 We put in 11 miles while Kent used up his saturday morning watching seven crazy kids!  thanks, kent.

I love Ava and Shelby's scowls in the group picture. Funny girls. Thanks for the long run kent!

Will miss you guys SO much! I will miss Metta's quick hugs, her pouts, and her easy smiles. And BTW she is not a cat lady just a wee bit bohemian!! I will miss the boys, although have not had them that much lately because of school, I will miss their smiles , silliness and jokes. All three have grown up in front of my eyes. I am proud to have known you all and I just hope we can stay in touch for years to come!

Is it weird to say that I'm sad for you?! Cohen keeps asking me when it's time for us to move and I get sad about leaving our friends here...and we still have 3 more years. I totally understand not being around family and relying on your friends as family. But the experience your about to have is going to be so awesome! Your such a great socializer, you'll have a great group of friends where ever you go!
