The splash this month is a little different. I only had four kids, since Rachel is still in Arkansas. Samantha was able to put Rachel's picture in JMichael's "hands" through Snapchat. The bridge is the Chesapeake City Bridge over the C&D Canal, where we went for fireworks.

Rachel and Evan are here in Maryland! They arrived late tonight after a two day drive. Whew! All back under one roof. Yay!!! Now it's time to move them in and hit the beach!

A salad is a personal thing. You can put on it what you like; and in the proportions that you like. My family made me a perfect salad. I am happy and proud to know that they know me so well that they made a salad that I would have made myself, with no direction from me other than, sure; I'd love a salad.
And on a side note, I'm so happy to live again near a town that has a salad bar in the grocery store! My kids have never seen this concept in Arkansas, and it has been a hit with them, too!

Country living. It makes me smile every time.

Charlie, in the red sweatshirt, middle, went to girls camp this year. This was her second year. We have lived in Maryland for less than a month; she's met some of these girls maybe three times in that time, and with no hesitation she is off. This girl does not know a stranger. She is fearless. And she had a great time. My favorite story of hers after camp started like this: Mom, guess what? I am really good at archery. That's how I had my chocolate at camp. They gave out Reese's cups for bullseyes. I had lots of Reese's cups.

Who is Mary? Good question. We are all still not sure. One of the families in our new ward has a daughter named Mary who apparently graduated from high school. They had a party, invited the ward, and we went. You don't meet people if you stay home, right? Plus, they were having crabs. That's a game changer, I don't care who you are. So we went to Mary's graduation party, even though, sorry Mary, I couldn't pick you out of a line up. Thanks for the fun evening and good food.
We may live in Maryland now, but, we still take our Cabot and Arkansas gear with us proudly!
