Shelly went away to a camp last week and did so well. She barely shed a tear as she said goodbye to us. They spent two nights and three days away from home and she loved it. So proud of her for stepping out of her comfort zone. 

Lily made the JV volleyball team! Yay! So proud of her. She really gave it her all and did so well on the try out days. 

Last week Lily developed a severe case of hives. It came out of nowhere and has been driving her nuts. It took us a couple of trips to the doctor to determine what the rash was. We aren't certain about what has caused the hives. She is now on a dose of Prednisone and I pray every night that it has gone away. Poor thing. (Photo of her leg with hives on day two of the episode---may want to scroll past)

Our Summer Fun list has about half of the items checked off of the list. It has been more difficult to accomplish things on it this summer. Hoping we can knock out a few more before school begins again. 

A couple of chillier rainy days have been nice for watching movies, going out to eat, and relaxing this past weekend. 

Lily has us (John, Lily, and me) hooked on The Walking Dead. Such a good show. Although it's very gruesome, the story of the people is so compelling. We are at the beginning of season 3. So, we still have a ways to go before season 5 starts back on tv. 

I'm getting a little excited for some cooler days and Fall fun. I love the Fall. I do need to remind myself that the warm temps linger around way into September...and even October. 

I had a thought the other day and I wanted to document it here~~~The decisions you make shouldn't effect the decisions I make. And just because we aren't doing the exact same thing doesn't make either of our decisions wrong. Not so sure that is crystal clear, but it has popped up like that in my head a couple of times this week. I think it's all about accepting other people's happiness along with our own. Or something like that. 

When we were away at the lake for a week, a good friend of ours took care of Daisy. It was such a relief to know that Daisy was okay. Sounds silly to say about a cat but true.
