July 2014: Fun with Friends

So, today is my tenth school day in a row off work due to winter weather.  After a mostly mild winter, we have been slammed with one bout of snow and ice after another for the last two weeks.  Admittedly, I have loved every minute of it!  I got to sleep in.  I graded ALL of my papers.  I’ve cleaned most of the house and caught up on the laundry.  I’ve played with the kids.  It’s really been a great snowcation!

And now that I’m all caught up, I can do some blogging!  Woohoo!

So I will channel warm thoughts of pool parties and summer fun and go over last July, since that’s as far as I got last summer!

Our good friends Josh and Cris put in a pool last year, and were kind enough to share it with us!

Reagan and Kennedy

We also got together with our former next-door neighbors from the old house.  Here I am with Liz and Laura—two moms and one mom-to-be!  It was a good thing we got together when we did!  Liz had her baby that night!
Baby Hugh Henry!  What a cutie!
A couple of weeks later, I got to go and see him in person!  Liz even let me hold him!

He was such a sweet, cuddly baby!  He never cried once, and Liz and I were able to have the nicest visit!  I’m so glad I was able to get in a visit before school started back the next week!  What a great way to end the summer!
