Summer Lovin'

"Summertime and the livin' is easy...."  ????? 

Unfortunately, the past two weeks our family has been sick with some crud/cold--summer cold!  It's been the pits!  It's knocked us down a few notches, but we are finally on the mend.  I haven't been this sick in nearly 11 years (since first year of teaching).  After laying around for over 60 hours, I picked myself up and went to the doc and got some meds.

Oh yeah....in the midst of the sickness, Graham goes off and gets his phone stolen.  *theft is so infuriating*

On top of everything, I've been super busy with my new job as director of Classical Conversations in Tyler.  I am thankful for this new job and really excited about it!  With that said, I haven't had a lot of summer downtime.  

Even through the illness, sickness, and really, really busy times, we've managed to have some fun summer moments already....
