July 2009

July flew by. I can't even remember everything we did this past month. Here are some highlights:

On July 4th, we went down to the local Home Depot, threw some lawn chairs in the back of the truck, and watched the Woodlands fireworks show. Nate had his toy shotgun, so I'm sure the locals thought we were a bunch of East Texas hillbillies. Darn straight!

Of course, the sun didn't let up at all in July, though it wasn't quite as bad as June. That's okay. It just gave us an excuse to stay in Papa and Loulou's pool all month long. Here is Anna enjoying a nice refreshing swim.

We spent one weekend in Austin visiting some friends. We had a lot of fun. They recently bought a beautiful new home and we experienced the epitome of southern hospitality. Natalie and Steven, yall can invite us back any time! The kids got to play together, as you can see below. The guys even got in a round of golf on Saturday. A bug bit Nate on his "special part" and it swelled up pretty bad. (I got a little jealous of him.) We had quite an adventure. Thanks again for the hospitality N and S.

Anna and Noah finally got to meet. Noah, I'm not going to tell you again. Get your grubby little paws off my sweet Anna or I'm gonna sic Nate and his shotgun after you...(just kidding Angie. Not really.)

All in all, July was a blast. A hot blast, but a lot of fun. We are looking forward to a busy August. Melissa is going back to teaching at a private Christian Academy in The Woodlands to help us out until the housing market comes back around. (Hopefully soon.) I'm very proud of her and all that she has accomplished. She is an incredible wife and mother, and is always willing to adapt to our ever changing and busy lives. Nate and Anna keep growing so fast. Nate has quite a personality, and Anna is getting one of her own. Time sure does fly by when your having this much fun....
