All Things Loved in July

1. Fourth of July. We had a great time this year adding some new hope-to-be-traditions, like going to the parade. Our fireworks were wonderful this year too and remembering the look on Caleb's face still makes me smile.

2. Reading. I was able to finish two books in July (well I have about 2 more chapters of Shepherding a Child's Heart). They were completely opposite in style, but both very much enjoyed.



3. Sudoku. I love this game and I'm getting better by the day. It gives me something to do while the kids are relaxing for the evening (and not paying attention to me, but to the TV). I'm almost ready to move onto the challenging puzzles I think!

4. Dinner with Friends! As you've read, we were able to get together for dinner twice with friends and it was just great. I love having people around.




5. My new toy...The Cricut. I can't wait to really dive in and begin creating. I've used it once and it was really easy (I only had to make one call to my friend Allison).

I'm gonna have to let you teach me how to do Sudoku, because I have NO idea how to do it! Glad you had a great July!

I'm finally back to blogging again! It's great to see you're still at it! I've always enjoyed reading your blog! And I see you got a Cricut! They are sooo fun! My friend and I get together to scrapbook and it's a blast! If you haven't heard of it already a great website to get cartridges cheap is: customcrops.com
Have a great week!

What a fun July. I love having people around, too. But I can't do Sudoku, I can't even spell it without looking! :)
