pardon my profound astonishment, but I just realized this year is halfway over.  

do you have any clue what this means?  do you?  because this is like, really important stuff.  you guys, it means that I am halfway through Project 365.  HALFWAY!  can you believe it?  yeah, so I've missed a few days here and there, even threatened to call it quits a time or five.  but I'm still plugging along, one day at a time.  it's been challenging and fun at the same time.  wait, is that possible?            

anyway, here are a few of my favorites, not in any particular order.  and I would venture to guess that at least half (if not more) have been taken with my phone.  but who's counting?  P-shaw.  also, kudos to those of you who have managed to stick with it.  that's awesome!  

btw, I'm still working on Gary for a picture of a cute, dimpled bottom.  

yeah, so there are a lot of Scarlett.  but she's so stinkin' cute HOW CAN I RESIST?

in other news:

-Myra just finished up a three-week long science summer camp.  the camp was held at her school and was, by the way, totally FREE (even breakfast and lunch were provided!) this included a field trip to the Science Museum in Phoenix, also free.  and to top it off, her teacher even bought her a souvenir from the gift shop.  lucky her!  to celebrate the last day (today), her class baked a cake in a solar oven.  cool.

-Ella and Phoebe completed their first round of swimming lessons; both passed with flying colors.  in fact, Ella is now swimming on her own.  I think the lessons gave her that *extra* boost of confidence she needed to "take the plunge."  I signed them up for another session at the end of July.

-I received word from my mother-in-law that all is well with Hannah and Jake.  after texting both of them several times and receiving no reply, I figured I better contact headquarters, just in case.  Jake did text me the next day saying his phone was dead, oops.  yeah sure, SURE IT WAS DEAD ;-) still no word from Hannah, though.  I'll take that as a sign that she's having fun, and therefore too busy to bother with her mother's nuisances.  or maybe her phone's "dead," as well.  kids these days.  I mean, I ALWAYS kept in touch with my parents at that age ;-)

-I'm 29 weeks already, where has the time gone?  glucose test tomorrow, wish me luck.

aaaand, last but not least,

-we're off to colorful Colorado for the Fourth of July.  planning to spend a few days camping and exploring near Dolores/Telluride.  since we'll be gone most of next week, that means no blogging OH DON'T EVEN START.   

wishing everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July!
