It is July 30 and 2012 is halfway over already. A happy fifth birthday to nephew Steven, Jacob and Emma’s son. I find it hard to believe he will be starting school this fall. Time seems to go faster every year. It looks like a nice day to do laundry. Last week we had rain every day Monday through Friday. The rain gave our lawn a boost, so the boys will finish mowing the grass today. It has been quite a few weeks since they had to mow it last. Our third cutting of hay is cut and we hope to get it in tonight. My husband Joe thinks we won’t have enough of our own due to the dry summer. Hay is very expensive to buy this year because of the drought.
