-Fred participated in a 100K bike ride on July 4th with a good friend. A 100K ride is 65 miles. That's a long time to pedal. Who am I kidding?!? That's a long time to ride in a car. I asked him if he had a picture of himself. I just got "the look" that communicated that he did not have a picture...bummer.
-While the kiddos were in Memphis a young couple at church got married. The mother of the bride asked me if I would be willing to coordinate the food at the reception. In the end I planned out the food and purchased it. It was a blast! I am not going to say how little I spent, but I'm thinking I might go in to business. It was a great day of working some friends, my mom and hopefully, a blessing to this sweet couple.
-I also had the opportunity to go a a long walk each morning with my Uncle. I cannot begin to tell you how much fun this was.
-As an update to Clayton's Lego Robotics camp...I asked him if he had the opportunity to make any friends and his reply was, "Mom, there wasn't really much time for socializing."
-Fred's granddad got married a couple of weeks ago. Fred performed the ceremony. It was really sweet. We are so excited to welcome Francis into the family! Here are a few pictures from the day. I had an outfit similar to Jack's laid out for Clayton to wear. At the last minute he asked to wear a suit. I was pulling stuff together at the last minute, but I'm glad it worked out!
And now just the Shackelford crew...minus Dan and Tami, of course.
-I served the boys homemade cinnamon rolls this morning. Homemade. You know they've been at Mawmaw and Mimi's house too long when the replies were, "I really like Mimi's cinnamon rolls out of a can better" or "Your icing is not as good as Mimi's." Feel the love. Feel it.
-I cannot believe July is here. The boys have children's camp this week, we are going to Holiday World for a few days next week and then the big boys and I go to Seattle the last week of July. Where has summer gone?!? We have loved every minute of it, well, minus the boys complaining about homemade cinnamon rolls. Homemade people!!
