Did you decide me in creating your own personal camp?  How is it going? Are you checking things off your list? Realizing you may have to cross a few things off?

is going strong though I’ve had been battling a headache this month. I may have to adjust my expectations at least a bit- I haven’t even seen any fireflies for the past week and I haven’t “caught” any. . . or perhaps I need to rethink how I will catch them. I didn’t make cookies for the troopers for the 4th of July but hope to make some later this month- I’m not ruling it out. I really haven’t had much time to go out with camera in hand- I’ve spent a lot of time indoors.

But, I’m checking things off my list.  We saw the fireworks with Whitworths- Check and Check.


Watched Baseball- Royals and even some college ball.


I tried a new spaghetti sauce recipe filled with fresh ingredients. . . We’ve got spaghetti all ready to go for easy dinners.  I actually have one more summer recipe to try with the tomatoes that Billy brought buy Sunday. (Shh! Don’t tell those two rascals above they came by the house.  The girls always want to come over and they were sound asleep and never got to get out of the truck on Sunday.)


Other things are in the works or being worked on.  I’ve not read each night but I’ve made time to read. Lisa and I talked tonight as a matter of fact and plan to do something next weekend but have no idea what- literally have not made any plans yet.

I’m enjoying my phone photography class- I’ve taken a bunch of pictures with my phone including all the square images you see here. I’ve have been super inspired by Hello Story as it began this week. Can’t wait to do some scrapbooking this weekend!  There’s still time to sign up for Ali Edwards Hello Story Class.



Now, the next thing I’d like to get off the list- swimming! I really wish we’d done that this evening but we’d had showers and thought the pool would be closed. Instead, we watched as others had fun in the pool and we worked out.  “I work out”. . . I can’t even think about working out without hearing Cody repeat the line to that song that has that line.  (Oh there’s a good bit of writing- “the line to that song that has that line”; I can’t remember what the song is called. Can you tell?).  He says it all the time now and it comes to mind.  Hmm. . . Maybe I need to add that to my list of things to scrapbook. I guarantee you that he’ll at least read it the same way he says it- and probably say it out loud- when he reads this post.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26
