I can not believe that it is August 6th already!! What?! Where did the summer go? Oh yea- camp (3 times!), Vacation Bible School, the 4th of July, a family reunion, an eleven day trip with 18 high schoolers to New Orleans, and WE Fest. Yup- that would do it.
So- in the fastest most photo heavy recap ever, here's my summer:

When it's really warm out and you only have a window air conditoner in one room (your bedroom) you'll do almost anything to stay in that room.
So that's June and July 2012 for ya.
Stayed tuned for a WE Fest update later this week!
