Here was our August.

The boys enjoyed their time with Nana

We finally closed on our house!  Christopher moved up first with his Jeep & a trailer of our stuff.  He was going to be up there to unload our pods and be there when they put in the new wood flooring.

He stayed at the Kennedy School, which is this really cool refurbished elementary school that now houses a motel, theater, restaurants, bars, & a brewery!

We celebrated Railroad Days in Portola.  Here the boys are watching the Lucky Duck race.

We went to the Mill Pond because it looked cool in the fog and Nathan found a four leafed clover

That really does have 4 leaves, although it is hard to tell.
Our new house has deer that come and visit

We took a walk to the Feather River

We enjoyed the All You Can Eat Spaghetti that the Calpine Elks put on

Our cat Suki is getting old (17), but she's still moving around!

Of course we went to the Mill Pond & the boys went in with all their clothes

We got rid of all of the carpet in our new house, but everything is going a little slower than planned.

The boys, my mom, & I went to the County fair in Quincy.  A teenager won a goldfish and he gave it to Nathan, but we really didn't have anywhere to put it (we bought a cheap vase & some food).  It ended up only living a week, but I imagine that fair fish don't have a long life expectancy!

Our master bedroom floor had some issues, which caused some delays because more had to be done to remove what was under the carpet.  We discovered that there were hardwood floors underneath some of the carpet, but it wasn't for the whole house and would just be easier to put new flooring on top.

Nathan created a little nature table at the Mill Pond

We went to the brewery with our friends and some other people brought a drum set and the guy was kind enough to let Nathan play it.

Even though our floors were now delayed because of problems with hardwood floors that we purchased, we decided to move the family up to our new house anyway.  Christopher came back to Graeagle.  We celebrated our last night there at the brewery with Joe, Pam, Traci, Curt, Carson, & my mom.  It was one of the fondest memories I have of that time up in Graeagle.
