Is Summer Really Almost Over?

Here in the south the school year seems to start way too early. Owen heads back to school on August 8th. He's only got 2 weeks left before he starts 2nd grade. Where has the summer gone?

We spent the 4th of July holiday visiting our dear friends Uncle Mike and Aunt Michelle Brady in Columbus, Ohio. There aren't many people in the world that I love completely but these two are definitely on the list.

The boys LOVED playing Rock Band.

Owen had a great time at the 4th of July carnival.

Once we got back into town it was time to say farewell to my sister Penny, who left the country to teach in South America for two years. We hosted a going away party for her at our house and we had a great time. She is definitely already missed.

The rest of July has been filled with pool time, play dates, and me working way too much. I'm looking forward to having a little more routine in our daily life and the hope of cooler weather. Happy Summer!
