Not a Gardening Post

July is flying by...

We celebrated the 4th (on the 3rd) and then
had a patriotic dessert on the 4th.


Then shipped the boys off to Scout Camp

Sam and Shane had a fun, busy, interesting, hot, dusty, productive week.
Merit Badge Count:
Sam: 9
Shane: 5
Bug Bite Count:
147 each
Mom Blessing Count:
2 Good Scouts + 3 Older Brother Eagle Scouts+ Many Patient Leaders=
Innumerable



I joined them the last evening and they showed me around  Camp Madaguay.


I loved getting the grand tour!

When we all got home, it was time to harvest the corn...
This is a "provident living, self-reliance" highlight.
It just so happens that the corn came from my garden, OK?


I was feeling very grateful to see the fruits of my labor,
especially after I had  to give that up not too long ago.

These were a cheery bonus.

Then, Shayla turned Sweet Sixteen!
She requested doughnuts (from the Amazing KD Donuts!)
Instead of cake...


We are only half-way through the month...
More summer fun to come!
