I will post some more about the messages soon, but in the meantime, you can check out BooMama's recap at the AllAccess Blog. There is a great video of Beth, Kay and Priscilla "gettin down" to Shackles. You have to check it out :-)
We also received Yard of the Month in our neighborhood for June which is really quite comical considering in our last neighborhood we used to get letters from our Home Owner's Association threatening us because we needed to cut the grass, trim the hedges and weed the borders. And we are even busier now (since we moved here) than we were then (when we lived there).
The kids got a swing set last weekend and they have been having a ball. Every kid in the cul de sac now wants to hang out at our house and that is a good thing. I'm preparing for the teenage years when we will want them all here so we know what's going on instead of somewhere else:-)
