Oh Where Oh Where Did July Go?

It is August 2nd already!  My mind is reeling trying to figure out just how July spend by so quickly!  As a matter of fact more than half of the year is over.  How did that happen!

July was an amazing month!  Emma took her first trip by herself to spend two weeks with her Nana Rollins in Myrtle Beach and didn't seem to miss us one bit!  My baby is growing up!  She will go back next year and hopefully go to an arts camp in Michigan.

We joined Emma for a week in Myrtle Beach as well.  We drove from North Brook, IL and went through some beautiful parts of Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina.  It is wonderful to see different areas of our country.  I'm looking forward to heading back to North Carolina for a rock hunting trip!

The week in Myrtle Beach with Michael's family highlighted the fact that we don't get to spend enough time with our families.  It saddens me that Emma and Jared don't get to spend more time with their Nana, and they don't really know what cousins, aunts or uncles are.  Not trying to sound whiny, and I feel very blessed for the time we do get with family, but we do need to make more time for family and memories.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with this blog....there has to be something more productive to share!
