We've Had A Crazy, Busy July

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.
