I can't even believe today marks the first day of July. Our time here in Minnesota is flying by and savoring every moment has been wonderful. Last week I found my first heart shaped rock while out and about with Sarah and her daughter Rowan. I was pretty shocked when I looked down at the ground and saw it sitting there plain as day. I didn't even have to dig!
Maria is currently camping with Scott's mom and will spend more time down in Sauk Rapids awaiting Scott's arrival on Sunday. From what I hear, he spent time in Steamboat, Co. with friends and will spend tonight in the Black Hills before driving the last nine hours home. Everyone is so excited to see him.
The girls have been loving the cooler weather and the freedom to run around in Nonny and Grampa's back yard. I've been taking lots of pictures and can't wait to upload them onto our computer so I can share them with you all. Pictures of wildflowers, prairies, old barns, and lots of green grasses are plentiful and quickly filling up my memory card. I've been filling the void by taking pictures with my phone, but I'm not too happy with the results I've been getting. Makes me wish we would've gotten those iphones. :)
The coming weeks are bound to be busy with fireworks, parades, a lantern launch, and possibly a daiquiri party at the farm. Finding time to fit it all in will be the hard part... so many people we have yet to see.
Still no word on a job out east, although Scott's application has been submitted to 3 positions in St. Albans, Vermont. We're crossing our fingers with the hopes that he snags one of them.
Wishing you all a happy and safe 4th of July.
