1 - Happy Friday!
2 - Yesterday a reporter from the ABC affiliate in Springfield, IL came to the house for an interview. I was a little nervous since I am never sure how the secular media will represent the Church so I was completely delighted when I opened my door and immediately recognized the reporter. We have a mutual friend and so I had heard of him, seen his picture, and knew he is a solid Catholic. God is so good!
3 - I'm excited about the Olympics but I'm also a little confused - the countdown on the official London Olympic website says the opening is in 5 hours (I'm writing this at 9:30 am). So I guess I'll just be ready at 2 and leave NBC on for the rest of the day!
4 - Easiest baby ever. Two months, completely adorable. She fell asleep while playing.
5 - Check out all the school supplies for Diane's Garden! People are so generous!
6 - Cute pictures of the kiddos:
Lydia with Sr. Marie Noelle, O.P. It was a great trip and I'll post more about it next week. I'll tell you about how I scared a couple of nuns and tips for keeping my 4 year old happy during an 8 hour car ride.
Bennet and his trains.
James and his cute, cheesy smile.
My sweet little Teresa.
7 - Travis goes back to work in two weeks! Two weeks! I am not ready for him to be gone and it's probably time I start working on a routine so things are easier when he's gone. Summer always goes so quickly.
