What I remember about work was: my boss stressing about all the shifting of books and all that has to happen with the new building being built that will connect to ours.

A lesson I learned this month was: not much of anything.

A friend and I: enjoyed time at the lake with our guys.

My favorite pic that I took was: One of my favorite photos from July is this pic of a Flower with Bugs on it, taken at Desota State Park

The favorite thing I cooked was: Margarita ChickenMargarita Chicken on a bed of rice pilaf makes for an easy dinner any time of the year.

Drew was:
–quite disrespectful during our 4th of July trip.
–spoke at a Rotary Club meeting about Troop 50.
–excited to get the actual Eagle project work days completed.

Alex was:
–excited for the baby Gerbils that we discovered probably a week or so after they were born.
–still taking piano lessons.

Rob was: busy with scouts and Thunder road and work.

The family and I:
–went on a trip to North Georgia/Chattanooga, TN. (posts coming soon!)
–attended a funeral for Dr. John Cottier, who we knew through scouting. Rob spoke briefly at his funeral. Dr. Cottier passed away suddenly from a heart-attack.

The thing I’ll remember most from this month was: new camera and Drew getting his work done for his Eagle project.
