{Backblogging} July 2013

We kicked off July with a celebration at the lake with family. The kids enjoyed time with their cousins while the grown ups enjoyed time catching up over coffee and board games and watching the kiddos play. it is rare to get the whole gang together, and I love when we can.

We didn't do as much of a garden this summer since we had two fairly new family members.  However, we did enjoy our blueberry, blackberry, and muscadine harvest.  We typically go to a blueberry farm in Pell City to pick blueberries, but this was the extent of our fruit picking this year.

Life in general continued in a relaxed manner.  The big girls loved their baby sister.  Luisa was still having trouble adjusting to the change (I promise, more on her attachment and bonding process later).  Overall, though, life was fantastic.  Ainsley was a good sleeper for a newborn, just waking once at night to nurse and sleeping pretty well in between.

I schlepped those silly girls all over the place.  We resumed our normal routine of PT, church, Costco and Publix trips, Bible study, doctor appointments, and playdates. Ainsley was usually in the sling so that I could help Lu navigate with her walker or push her in the stroller.  I taught one summer camp for two weeks in July.  Philip was able to stay home during the morning to make that possible.  It was a busy summer, but it was lots of fun!
