Goodbye to July

It's been a busy few weeks since we've been home from our trip out West!  
We finally got to do some 'summer' things, including just hanging out at home doing silly things like dancing around to our favorite music, costume changes mandatory of course.  :-)

We were so excited to get up early one morning and see Miss Katy off to her medical mission trip to Kenya!  We have prayed for her and this trip from the very first days when she thought God 'might' be calling her to go and use her gifts as an ultrasound tech.  We watched in complete awe as God opened every door for Katy over the last year and then it was finally *the* day!  Katy is home safely now - she had an uh-mazing trip!  God is so good.

We helped Grandma tend to her blackberries way out on the edge of their property.

And there have been lots of celebrations!
Birthday parties,

and weddings,

and taking the kids to their first spend the night camp(s)!

They had a fantastic time, but we missed them so much!

Luckily, for my peace of mind, my sweet friend from college was one of the directors for the week while my kids were at camp - yay!!!  I posted this on FB, but who knew all those years ago that one day she would be in charge of my kids for a whole week?  Certainly not this girl!  Again, I say, God is good.  :-)

And then we were back to birthday parties:

And baby showers:

And the triplets turned 1!!!  Already!

And playdates:

And football practice:

And seeing how our BFF's hard work all summer paid off in the local production of The Music Man!
Can't believe July is almost over, but it has been such a great month!  So thankful.
