Our summer is about to draw to a close, with school starting up next week. Although we didn't go back to the US this year, we had visits from both sets of grandparents. My parents were here on-and-off in July and August between visits to the UK and Venice. Such world travelers! I already posted a couple photos of our time with my parents in my mid-summer catch-up post. Here are a few more:

|after a baking hot summer of no AC, the return of clouds was welcome|
And I drove my parents into Trier, Germany one afternoon...
|Grandpa was a good sport and took both kids on the chair swing back-to-back.|
|Ate at one of the tent-restaurants inside the fair|
And, we couldn't get the weekend off leading the music at church, so we put the whole family in the band instead! James even joined the band for the first time signing harmony background vocals.
