For once...

I would like to have a summer when I am home for more than 2 days in a row. Well...actually I don't think I would like that at all! Sorry for the lack of blogging over the last couple of months, but the summer has just flown by and I think that collectively I have been in my house for about a week and a half total! Here is the very quick recap of the adventures that have taken place over the summer...I PROMISE to have a more detailed post soon!

June 14-21- I spent a super relaxing week in North Myrtle Beach with 2 amazing families...the McSwains and the Harwoods. I have taught half of this clan and loved spending time with them and having some fun in the sun! Sand sculptures...yummy food...crazy games were just some of the highlights from this week!

June 21-28- I spent the week in Surfside Beach with my family and the McSwains. It was a great week...lots of reading and time in the sun. I love being with my mom at the beach and just taking walks, talking and relaxing! Fun times.

I came home for about 5 days and spent the majority of the time with my precious Goddaughter Ivy! WOW...what a blessing. I will post more about this later, but we had a wonderful week.

Then I headed to summer camp for 2 weeks! I will post more about this later too, because I have to say that the two weeks at Truett were unbelievable! I have never laughed so much in my whole life! The kids were great, the food was...well camp food...the staff was amazing! I love these people and can't believe that we don't do a better job of keeping in touch! What fun!

I came home for a weekend to say goodbye to my bestest friend Shannon. She is moving to Mississippi with her fiance Jordan. It was very sad, she has been an amazing blessing in my life for the past 3 years. I know that God placed her in my life for so many reasons and I know that our friendship will last forever...just 9 hours away!

Today I am heading to Sarai's for a little "bachelorette" party with Carlee and Beth. Then Sarai and I will head to Lori's for our Girls' Week not New York trip which will include a fun night in Atlanta and shopping at IKEA and H&M. Fun times to be had I am sure!

Exciting news on the Baby front...Katrina and Joe had a beautiful baby Girl on Friday night around 9:00 pm. Madison Elise Martins made her grand entrance weighing in at 8 lbs 15 ounces and is 21 inches long! Her mommy was trooper and gave birth with NO PAIN MEDS! What an amazing woman of strength. I am excited to go and meet her in a couple of weeks.

I know this has been a very random post, but I wanted to fill all of you in on my life as of now. I will be home for a few days next week and I promise to write more details about the summer of '08!

Enjoy the last few days of July with a glass of cold lemonade and some fun in the sun!
Until next week...
