Highs and Lows

June has been crazy. 
I just checked our calendar and June has 67 various appointments on it.
That's nuts. 

It's also been a month of highs and lows.

High:
We're having a baby girl!

Low:
We went to court today for the little one.
It did not go the way we hoped.
We continue to wait.
And trust.
And hope.
And trust.
And wait.

High:
We sold the Volvo and bought a van!
Just when you didn't think we could get any less cool...
Alice: "Look Mama! I match the van!"
She wore pajamas with an angel costume on top to the grocery store this morning.
We're classy like that.

Low:
Freaking fires.
They are so terrible.
I just read that there are now 7 wildfires burning in CO right now.

High:
Ben and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary last Friday!

Low:
Tomorrow was our little one's due date.
So thankful for the sweet life I'm carrying now, 
but still sad about the one we lost.

High:
We are healthy,
happy,
and incredibly blessed.
I'm thankful for each day I get to spend with my amazing husband and little ones.

I'm also hoping July is a tad calmer. :)
