Lately, it takes a lot of effort to write a blog post. Which is why I haven't. We have been oh so freakin busy.

Just a few things we had going on were hosting an exchange student from Japan at our house, hosting the Gypsy cast party at our house, Gypsy in general, my parents coming into town, and theatre camp to name a few. Brent and I both teach at theatre camp for 2 weeks and let's just say its A LOT.

Celebrating the Fourth

 Tardy post, I know, but we have had a good celebration of the 4th.

On the actual 4th we went to our annual party at the Looney's house. Food, swimming, volleyball and just a general good time with friends.

For the weekend, we got to go to Birmingham to see our cousins and grandparents and Nathan and Amy. "Its called Uncle Nathan" according to Baker.

 I am so thankful that Baker and Hayes play so well together. He just loves her so much.
I was also thankful for the weather last Saturday. Not only was it a bearable temperature, but the shady trees in Nathan and Amy's backyard made it wonderful. We probably played outside for 4 or 5 hours without ever getting hot. True story.

Zoe is  spending the week  at Camp Sherry and Jimmy's in Dothan. She does this every summer and they always have a blast. I took her to Prattville where my parents took her from there. We got to visit and eat with Honey too!

 So, what turned out to be a lovely weekend, led into a not so lovely week. On Monday Baker dropped a large, metal, cylinder post on my toe at work. Top 5 worst pains ever. Then our cat ate a lilly which is poisonous to cats apparently, and now she is super sick. $600 later we will find out what exactly is wrong with her. A few other strings of bad luck and it is just time for this to end.

In addition, July is really super busy for us. We have a Japanese exchange student coming to stay with us from Sunday to Wednesday and we are really excited. Also, Brent is in Gypsy with Theatre Tuscaloosa which opens tonight. Theatre camp starts Monday, parents come Saturday...busy busy!

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3: 12-14
