Feel free to skip this post...

Because there is not a lot going on. I just wanted to check in. MK is enjoying her summer so far. She has been busy with friends, enjoying sleepovers and a trip to our local waterpark. It's been a little cooler the last few days so we've been taking some walks around the neighborhood and spending a lot of time outside.

I went to the dentist today for my Zoom impressions. They said they would have to call when there is an opening to make the actual appointment. About an hour later they called and said there is an opening tomorrow at 8 a.m. So I will try to post pictures. The initial appointment should brighten my teeth some, but then they are sending trays with me that I will apply at home and that should help more. I am trying not to get my hopes up too much. There is also a part of me that thinks it's sort of vain, but it is not something I would normally do, and that was my mom's directive.

We made some plans to go away in July. We have rented a cabin at DeSoto State Park in northern Alabama. I have wanted to go camping for a long time, but we don't really have the equipment and it's just too hot here. So this is a good compromise. It is near Lookout Mountain. Not that we ever lived near the Rockies or the Alps, but we have lived in Virginia and North Carolina and were always just a quick trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway and mountains of some sort. Now we live near the beach, which is truly beautiful, but I have been missing mountains. So I am really looking forward to this trip.

If you're still awake, leave me a comment and let me know what you're doing this summer!

Have a great day!

that sounds like a wonderful trip planned. It's always nice to be in the mountains... there is just something about it.

It's to hot here as well to do anything outside unless you are in water... I'm foreseeing a lot of swimming this summer!

I love the mountains. We live in Va. in the Shenandoah Valley and have the mountains on all sides of our home. My parents live in N.C. on Carolina Beach so we get to enjoy the best of both worlds. I hope you enjoy your trip.

No major summer plans yet, due to the absolutely, insanely frustrating lack of schedule in race's work. So, we have become the "spontaneous family", which is totally unnatural to me, but I go with it. We have been camping a lot already, and are planning to go kayaking the next time Race is in town...( I MIGHT even get up the courage to take the kids down the river by myself!!) We are supposed to do some climbing this summer in W. VA (fingers crossed on that one).
