It is starting to look like Fall in parts of the country now. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. The colors are amazing up in Northern Arizona and I heard back in the Midwest they are looking good also.
Hope everyone had a fun August because that is what life is about right? The Mills Family had an exciting month for our family and business. Even though my golf game got rained out a few times due to the bad storms we had we still got some golf in. I normally play or practice golf almost every day that it isn’t pouring down rain. Here in Arizona, we normally only get rain about 30 days a year so I get a lot of golf in.
Vacation time for Darlene. Yea. Darlene was still working about 6 to 7 days a week. The overtime is good for our vacation this summer to Texas, Kansas City, Minnesota and Colorado. Big road trip for sure. Just about 3 weeks away. This month we made it to Texas, Kansas City and Minnesota. Next month we will see Colorado.
Seth is done with school till August now and the warm weather is starting to arrive here in Arizona. This is my favorite time of the year with School being done and vacation trips coming up soon. So many good things to look forward too and be grateful for.
Golfers in Arizona are excited this month because here in Arizona the Golf rates will start to drop since the Snow Birds are heading back to their summer homes. This is the time of the month we play most of our rounds for the year. Cheap rates last till October and then they start to go back up. So, if you are a golfer now is the time to travel to Arizona for some cheap golf. We are from the Midwest and we know that golf isn’t cheap during the summer months there.
Another crazy month here at the Mills Way Family. We were sad to see Mom and Dad bead back to Minnesota this month. We drove them to Texas and spent the night before heading home. They went on to see relatives in Kansas City before heading home. Our drive to Texas was one of our worst in the last seven years. We drove in heavy Snow, Winds, Fog and Rain. We had times we were stopped on the Interstate with the motor shut off while we waited for traffic to move. We are planning on Flying more in the future then driving back home.
This month went way too fast. We have less than two weeks from today and we will be driving our folks back to their home in Minnesota. They have been down since the first of December and we wish they would just live here all year around. Maybe some day our wish will come true.
Another awesome Month to live in Arizona. We had a great month here with Mom and Dad. I feel living in Arizona that we get more company and have more quality time with company then we would have had back in Minnesota. The month was a roller coaster of emotions and crazy things happening. I guess that is called life. LOL
December was a fun month since this was the first time we had our folks with us for the whole month to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s. They plan on staying till sometime in March but we would love to have them live with us full-time in the future.
What a crazy month. One we will never forget for sure but we sure wish we could. This month will go down as one of our worst months ever and it wasn’t because of any money matters.
