Gratitude is born in hearts that take time to count up past mercies.

some of July
The end of June and early days of July were filled with Youth Conference and Girls Camp.
Stand Ye In Holy Places was the theme for our Youth Conference.
Camp was filled with adventure and caring.
Then we attended a flag ceremony of the 4th.
I love to go to church and meet with faces that I love.
Sweetie lead the bike parade on his scooter.
Alison and her children stopped by to visit my dad on his birthday. He becomes 78 on July 6th and I know that he appreciated this visit. I especially am thankful that she would take a detour when she is making a five hour drive to come home.
Claire was baptized and confirmed in July as well. We were lucky to have so many of the cousins in town to share this special day with her.
Every day Alison and I went for an early morning walk. Usually Katie would be waiting for our return. I absolutely loved spending time with these girls.
James will be five in September so we went to Build a Bear. Here he is putting a heart that he has kissed into his new friend Bob II.
We are really good at just hanging out.
We ate dinner at Asian Star. I enjoyed the adult company so much.
Laurel graduated from mental health court. She's off to California and we keep our fingers crossed for her new adventure.
I have spent 29 hours watching this Korean show with 33 more to go. I am reluctant to continue...only because I hate a sad ending and I like one of these women so much.
Here we are at the farmer's market looking at pens.
Produce, flowers, bread, honey, soap, musicians, hot hot weather and artisans...we loved it.
