July was a big trial.  Much has happened.  Between this month’s camping trip, a broken arm, a rush to the emergency room, six follow-up doctor’s appointments, a 3 year old’s birthday party, a cake mishap, a finger that was SLICED open (and should have been another trip to the emergency room, but the Hubs refused) a black eye, aphid wars, three corsets, and two sock monkeys… well now that I typed it all out, I’m surprised I had time to shower.  Did I mention the bee stings???
