Well, I haven't been as eager to update our little family blog.

Let's see... updates :)

In June...
we celebrated my 23rd birthday. And Christopher's :)

my sister came to visit for about a week.

In July...
we visited Granny and Grandpa Harris in Round Rock while Clay&Dedie, M, J&C were in Boston on a missions trip. We had a fun evening playing Imaniff with the boys and Grandpa. We laughed a lot!! No pictures. Oops...

Then we made a surprise visit to Oklahoma!!! I didn't realize how much I missed my family until we got closer and closer. I was pretty much thrilled to be home for a weekend. :D
James and Michal, Nick and I went to Elk City for a little tiny shopping trip. I was pretty thrilled to get a new NYC skirt for about $2. And a Tommy sweater for about $3. Michal and I love our store, Walls. ;) And Maurices... I was thrilled to find out that Maurices is coming to South Austin soon. ;o
We witnessed some smally superb fireworks by the Mangum Fire Dept. :) And other things... ;X :) It was a good trip! I miss my sibs just thinking about it...

Our trip home was not delightful. We were a little sad to leave, plus our air conditioning was out. It was SO hot and sweaty. We stopped in some town for some DQ blizzards. I had a cotton candy drink. Yummericilous!!!

When we got home we got that car issue fixed for a nice sum of money.

I started a babysitting job (about 10-20 hours a week/varies) so that's helping a lot!!

We are enjoying the free Austin Symphony Orchestra on Sunday nights. We spent last Sunday evening with Melissa, Nick's sister. We had a fun time and are looking forward to more fun evenings doing things like that.

Speaking of Sundays, we have been attending Bannockburn Baptist Church. We both LOVE the Sunday school class. We have been very grateful to find a solid, growing young married couples group. God blesses us abundantly!!

I think tomorrow we are going to try to go to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. It's free for some reason tomorrow. :)

Nick has applied for a part-time job at Seattle's Best Coffee. Praying that comes through.

I miss my Grandma who passed away this past April :( I don't know what is causing that... but I just wish I could be with her again. She was a wonderful Grandma!!

Anyway... I'll try to keep updates flowing more frequently :)

We're doing well. And that's what matters :)
