Well, the obvious comes to mind right off – Canada Day and Independence Day. We celebrate both, of course. Canada Day (HERE) always makes me a wee bit homesick. July 4th (HERE) was fun as well. July is also Grandma’s birthday up in Canada. And full blown summer fun here in Minnesota.
We lucked out and managed to make Home Depot where the kids made little bowling alleys. Which were PERFECT for the 18 inch dolls, I am told.
I managed to finish a prayer shawl for the Catholic church down the road, along with a pocket prayer shawl.
We spent TONS of time at the YMCA.
Emanuel got over his fear of the slide
Walked back and forth for ClubY.
We hung out in the hammock.
Played outside whenever we could.
Had movie nights.
Ken made the girls a reading corner in the sunroom out of fabric and a hula hoop!
Hung out with our homeschool friends at the park as often as we could.
Made sure to document all the pretty flowers.
Visited our godson Anthony after emergency appendix surgery.
Met a brand new baby! Congrats Cory and Karen!
We even snuck in time for homeschooling.
Echo even went to Evan’s birthday party SOLO with dad!
We watched soccer.

Celebrated Alex’s birthday.
Experienced the County Fair. (see the county fair blog post)
Were ditched by the boys who went to the cabin (too many mosquitoes for our allergic girls).
Even on our day off we made the walk to the YMCA.
