Hello July

Hard to believe this year is more than half over already, where does the time go!?

We are in summer mode around here full time now and it is wonderful :)
Boys are all done with Soccer and Baseball, and are playing Tennis once a week.

(and Aiden loves playing with all the tennis balls)

A nice slow change of pace after being busy 6 days a week. We are enjoying lazy days around the house for now.
