Project 365 {week 33}

This post is late mostly because this particular week is not our favorite and it’s hard to go back to it after it’s done.

But.

Here it is.

Except for August 10. Because I didn’t snap a picture. Which is dumb because we celebrated what would have been Cort’s dad’s 58th birthday with beach and homemade peach pie. It was glorious. I just didn’t take a picture.

August 11: I went to make banana bread and found this one taste-testing the brown bananas. Spoiler: he did not love it.

August 12 apparently didn’t get a picture either. If I remember correctly it was not a good day.

August 13: after date night with this guy, he plays with his new phone. We went with Galaxy S5's and LOVE them already!

August 14: This day. Sigh. So hard. Took the boys to the pier to "see" Papa Steve.

August 15: This kid is non-stop terror. It's time for school schedule.

August 16: The week of bad national news and rough grieving ended the way it needed to with lots of laughter and the best ribs EVER with awesome friends.

This week put a lot on my heart with the death of Robin Williams and the horrible nightmare in Ferguson.

Add that to missing Cortney’s dad for nine years,

well…

it would have been easy to blow off the whole week as sucky.

But we still found moments of joy.

We still laughed.

And that’s what you have to do, right?
