Some Summer Fun

July is a somewhat crazy busy month for us, and guaranteed I have photographic evidence of every part. This is true especially now in these here modern days when phones double as cameras and cameras as phones.

I often times confuse the two, calling a phone a camera when I mean a phone and vice versa. 
It's a problem I have. 
I also do this with 

mushrooms and onions 
Wal-Mart and McDonalds. 

Thank you for listening.

The first week of July my mom and sister were here for Holiday Bible Club so when I noticed beautiful hues of colour streaming through our windows at 10 pm one night I had to go check it out!
I'm thankful my momma and sis were there because Mark and I were able to take a quick trip 'doon the brae' (down the hill) and check it out.

Showering in Scotland

Showering in Scotland would be the much the same as showering in the USA. 

Except Scotland doesn't do showers...

I mean I suppose people here have heard about showers, but it's a new concept. They've managed without showers for hundreds, even thousands of years. They've found other ways besides a shower and it's worked out well. But I wanted these people to know what showering is all about, how fun it is, and how it blesses the person who's being showered.

So I'm proud to say I have now given a small taste to northeastern Scotland of what a shower is all about.
No bathtubs or soap required, I'm talking about a good 'ol baby shower.

I think I should never try to be a mystery writer, because as clearly illustrated by the example above, it ain't working out for me.

I happen to have two sisters who are BOTH pregnant, but they are in the USA and I am 5,000 miles away. So when I found out that one of them would be coming over to help with Holiday Bible Club I jumped at the chance of doing the big sister thing and throwing a baby shower!

Me, my sis, our momma, and 2 of my 3 girlies going 'showerin'!

A Year Ago

After yet another of Airdrie's physiotherapy appointments yesterday I spent a bit of time in thought, in retrospect of the past 12 months. More exactly what I was thinking and feeling a year ago, 7 months pregnant.

August 2013-- 3rd trimester

We had been in our new home country for right around 6 weeks and were still adjusting, but loving all the newness of Scotland and the adventure we were embarking on.
