Blogging has been on the back burner for the month of July. We are having a busy, happy, productive, and wonderful summer. I hope to catch you up on all our news soon.
As July ends, I hope we have warmer days in August. We've had very strange and unusual weather around here this month. For days it has rained. We've had so much rain, I am beginning to think I live in the Pacific Northwest. It has been so cold and rainy that the moisture came down as snow on top Pikes Peak the other day. I haven't seen the mountain itself in days, so I can't tell you if there is still snow up there or not, but I would guess there is.
If one lives in Colorado, we spend a lot of time joking about the weather. We say, "If you don't like the weather, stick around for five minutes and it will change." One thing doesn't change around here: the beautiful scenery where we live. Until I have time to write a more detailed account of our summer, I thought I would share a short video that illustrates some of the reasons I love where I live in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado.
As the summer progresses, I hope all of you are having fun with your family and friends. I heard a quote the other day that really spoke to me. As our summer days fill up with busy activities, I hope we all remember this adage while we strive to work towards balance in our lives.
