I’m so excited to share this Random Life post with you. Life has been full and very blessed.
Jesse’s big project this summer has been the two bathroom remodels, and with help (a big thank you to all the family who did!), they were completed just before the renters needed the house mid-August. I’ll share a separate post about the work project!
It seemed we had a lot of traveling too. The last Random Life I posted from my West Coast trip, and then the day after I got home, Anna went to Canada for a friend’s wedding. The next week, we left for Colorado!
You’ve seen less of me because I’m editing my new book with the copyeditor date approaching! I’m really excited to share more details.
Grab yourself a coffee and enjoy Random Life!
We celebrated Dad’s birthday with just our immediate family. Then, we did a triple birthday party (Dad, Mom, and Mary’s) with all the relatives a bit later. I’ll probably share a post on that if I remember! 🙂 (Trivia here: spot Arnold in the above picture: a place he likes!)
Jesse gave us a house tour that night. I’d been gone
for 10 days and hadn’t seen it for a while even before that.
Nathan and Melanie’s crew participated in the summer Bible Bee study and
enjoyed attending monthly events, often with GiGi.
Many hours put into Jesse’s house
Anna flew to Canada for a friend’s wedding and was so blessed.
Beautiful sunset over the prairie
Wouldn’t you love to take one of these bunnies home?!

We girls went on a birthday run with Bethany! This little 8-year-old is a great runner.
Then, she enjoyed a birthday breakfast with her daddy.
Babies are enjoyed here at the Maxwells

Deliciousness right there
Mom’s birthday happened right before we left for Colorado.

This was actually done as a Live Photo, and if you look carefully, you’ll see the best part of it.
Hiking Princeton. The beauty of seeing the sun rise.
Loved our hikes!
Mount of the Holy Cross hike–an adventure for sure! That post will be coming!
Ice cream after their big hike (and French fries)
Anna discovered this in her coffee one morning during Bible time
Back in Kansas, Ellie was well taken care of by Christopher’s family. Here Ruthie’s holding onto her collar while one of the kids hides–then Ellie goes and finds the person. It’s our Find Me game and loved by all.
Lydia’s hiding spot
Enjoying some cuddles before Ellie came back home
I spent a lot of time editing in Colorado. I loved the gorgeous setting!
Speaking of cuddles, these two “kittens” at
Nathan and Melanie’s are so cute.
Catching up on Titus2 orders when we got home!
Grilled pizza Anna made
This doesn’t look good. I think he was considering jumping on the table.
Anna took Calia on a rain walk. Talk about adorable.

Smiles all around from these sweet girls.
