Is it August already?! I'm quite thrilled that July is behind us. I don't normally wish the summer away... but this year I have good reason to! On the other hand, it's been a wonderful (hotter than hot) summer, so far! We started the month on vacation in our favourite little spot, Picton. A hot summer day on a beach with our friends, horseback riding, sea-dooing and swimming in the hotel pool every evening - I don't think July could have gotten off to a better start for us all! This past month was jam packed with: old and new friends, camps, swimming, bike rides, birthday parties, picnics, fireworks, new glasses, face painting, london olympics, answered prayers (our letter to bring Phebe home)... and the list goes on! I couldn't be more thankful - our family has been so blessed, in so many ways.
