Summer is just moving by at super fast speed! I can’t believe it is already nearing the end of July. I haven’t posted here in ages, although I think about it all the time. I keep figuring I’ll get to it eventually. Well, now is eventually I guess!
Our summer has been relatively quiet this year. I have been dealing with a lot of sickness. Thankfully, I have an awesome doctor and we are pretty sure we have gotten me on the good meds now! My body is finally starting to heal and I hope to enjoy the last month of summer with my family.
In June, John’s parents came for a visit. We celebrated Benjamin’s 8th birthday.
Kids and I also went to the Renaissance Faire (in the rain, mind you) and we did plenty of Scout stuff.
In July, we had the pack overnighter with the cub scouts (and some troop guys as well). We got to visit Fox News 12 with the pack and then near the end of the month we put in our resignations to that pack. Too much work. We were pulling about five jobs there and it was more stress than fun for us. There were many factors in our leaving … distance being a big one. We will miss the group but know that they will do awesome. So now we are checking out two new packs and will hopefully make our decision by the end of August to see which one will fit us best.
Next month’s big thing will be our camping trip up to Bull Trout Lake. I can’t say I’m looking forward to it yet. I don’t handle driving to new places that well… but it’s supposed to be beautiful up there. We will be camping with three other families from church and then the boys will all stay for a men’s retreat with the church while the girls all come home. Should be fun (I hope!)
So that’s all that has been happening in my neck of the woods lately. Will be sharing more soon.
