Hi-Yo ~Here is July's Roundup!~

It's all about summer - Here is my son and his cousin fishin' at Grandma and Grandpa's over the 4th of July weekend!

Here are the girl cousins takin' a break from water skiing to catch up on the latest teen celebs!

And here is my husband with our daughter on the night of her 8th grade graduation. She gave one of the four speeches to a crowd of about 1700 people. She has since told me that speeches in high school are going to be a breeze! (Ok - this was really June, but I am that far behind in posts and I really wanted to share!)

Great job! You read some good books.
Your August list looks impressive.
Now, do you read the books in the numbered order that you have them in?
I pile my books on my piano in the order that I *think* I want to read them.

Loved the pictures. Looks like the kids were having fun.

Your daughter is gorgeous - she looks much older than 8th grade, too - you're going to have to keep an eye on the high school boys!

I agree with bermudanonion - your daughter is beautiful! And she looks so happy! That's great that she got to give one of the speeches. You all must have been so proud!
