Last year we had the summer that wasn't, this year we're creeping up on July with staggering temperatures. We had our garage sale Friday and Saturday, and I learned that next time (the first weekend in August) we will be advertising in the paper. Craigslist and signs just weren't enough. Saturday we saw a heat index of 106, which makes you wonder how much you can possibly sweat!
Erik survived his week as a day camp counselor last week and is spending this week on a mission trip in Schuyler Nebraska providing a Vacation Bible School program. We told him to drink plenty of water and to liberally apply bug spray since Schuyler was one of the areas in Nebraska with significant flooding.
Brian and I are hoping to get some work done on our house "to-do" lists while Erik is away and we're on the vacation countdown since it is a short 18 days until we leave for Ely!
