I know, it's been a while...

Since the last time I posted a lot has happened. Joseph got a great job in Charlotte, I've decided to work 5 days a week at the school and we finally bought a new car!

The real changes have happened with AJ though, she's gotten so big! She turned one (!) on July 1st and had her first party on the fourth. She started walking right before her birthday and has since gotten the hang of it. She's starting to climb on and under the furniture. She loves to play outside and in the water. Bugs and flowers fascinate her! She's definately going to be a tom-boy!

We took her camping for the first time last weekend at Andrew Jackson State Park. She loved the nature trail and seeing the ducks. She got to play on the "big kids" playground and enjoyed inspecting the old buildings. Thankfully, the mosquitos left her alone. I, however, was not so fortunate. When I got home I counted 55 bites on my legs and 4 on my arms. It was torture. They've stopped itching but I still have little red marks covering my legs.

This weekend we're in VA for the Parcell Reunion. It will be good to see all the family. When we get home Monday my month of vacation starts. No school 'til September! I'll finally get my house back in order!

Well, that's all I have for now! Hopefully I'll be back soon!
