31 days in July


What a busy, busy month! I may be too tired to think in complete sentences... but somehow I can still count.

1 red-white-and-blue Independence Day parade
4 forts in Nana's living room



1 inspiring local homeschooling conference
6 fun afternoons at the park with friends


5 long-anticipated tickets to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.” (We took my dad and left Littlest with his Nana.)
1 lesson in leverage


3 parties to celebrate friends' birthdays
At least 20 games of chess, checkers, Battleship and Dinopoly


4 weekly cello and violin lessons
3 days (for the professional) to hang and finish the drywall


Lots and lots of 100-degree days
A dozen evenings at the pool


1 day to move our living and dining furniture into...
2 Uboxes while Scott refinishes the floors
1 teary farewell to dear friends moving to North Carolina


4 rooms to paint (including ceilings)
11 days of prepping and painting
3 cans of Behr satin Cornsilk
2 cans of Behr satin Rainwashed


2 cousins visiting from New York
3 delicious dinner invitations 
1 visit with friends to a children's museum


1 lesson in using a table saw for Eldest
3 days to lay the new tongue-and-groove floor in the kitchen and laundry room


14 days until Daddy goes back to work his easier paid job as a teacher
