Taking Stock of July




Yes July has come and gone and it is dreadfully hot August. On the up side it is our anniversary month (6 years).  We did get married indoors near the end of August and luckily it was a cool day. Also the kids here started school this week… that just seems crazy to me. By the time Ali goes to school they will be starting in July. Here is a Look back on July.
