July was just a crazy month with summer camps (which the kids hated) and Pop Warner football camps (which Alex LOVED). Mark's traveling more and more, so most of our time is spent juggling schedules and praying we don't miss anything, and that we're not leaving the kids home alone any more than absolutely necessary. Mom and I have weekly planning sessions to see when we need her to pitch in each week. Thank God for Mom - we would never survive without all of her help!
We had 11 baby snakes hatch on July 5, which is always very exciting for us. Patch is continuing in gymnastics three evenings a week, and excelling every day. I wish I could show you more of his skills on the website, but he moves too fast to catch on film!
