Wow, I've been so busy lately, I've completely neglected my blogging efforts, but here's an update of what we have been up to.
First of all, the kids got out of school on June 6. Brenden passed and will be moving on to Junior High next year. Where has the time gone? It seems like it was just last year when I put him on the bus for the very first time to go to kindergarten. Sara flew through 2nd grade and I am certain she will flourish in 3rd grade as well. She absolutely loves going to school and she does very well.
After school concluded for the summer break, Mike decided it was time for a trip to Disney World. We left on June 20 and came back on the 27th. We drove down in our Ford truck, and made a few sightseeing stops along the way. We kept a journal of our trip and I plan on posting that on here soon.
As soon as we got home from the trip, we had to start making our Independence Day plans. We ended up planning to go to the parade, and then a get together up at my aunt Becky's house. We invited our new friends Robin & Mike, who brought his two sons along. We cooked out on the grill and then watched the town fireworks from the hill on Becky's property. After those were finished, we had a bonfire and let off our own fireworks.
I've finally had a couple of days off now, but tomorrow I have to go to a book sale, and I really need to get back to work on my book store. Sales have been trickling in, but I could be doing so much better if I put in more effort.
I also have been slacking on taking care of myself, so I am going to be headed to Weight Watchers to get started on building a better me.
