"Christmas in July"

is the feeling we have had all month long. The kids have been having fun rediscovering the toys they left behind and G. and I keep finding things we forgot we had. Since we moved into the condo in late May 2007 and then quickly left for China early August, most of our possessions were still in boxes in the garage. We've been slowly getting organized, and of course, are constantly derailed by shrieks of "Wow! Look what I found!".

We had a busy July. Swimming lessons, storytime and music events at the library, visiting the park, playdates and the like kept us going. I'm enjoying the return to baking - it's so nice to have an oven again!

We attended "Soccer 'round the Clock" - a benefit to raise money and awareness for bone cancer - earlier this month. Before the games, activities and competitions were held for kids and adults.

This mom's dream: my son (and his constant companion Panda) reading the Free Press! I was about the same age doing the same thing, thus, forever hooked to the printed word.
