It’s been a busy and enjoyable few weeks of adjusting to life as a family of four. I’m posting to catch up on the month and then will try to post daily photos again.

Following our relaxing and wonderful two weeks at the Hemlocks, we returned to Salem for the rest of the summer.
Justin continued his baseball practice:
Swing and a miss!
And posed for the camera:
No more photos, please!
Granddad also came for a quick visit to help clean out and rearrange a few rooms, including Justin’s new “big brother” bedroom:

A lot of trash gets hauled away…
Playing in his new room!
Other fun was had too!

And, of course, Justin spent a lot of time helping us get the baby things ready for next month!

We spent the end of July and start of August at the Hemlocks, our family’s cabin in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
