...don't know if you guys remember me...I'm Alex- the founder of this blog. Jason has been the primary blogger as of late. And I have just been enjoying my sweet little summer life. For some reason, I just haven't felt the need to blog, but maybe I am back in action. We shall see. I am currently sitting at home enjoying a turkey sandwich (duh), wheat thins, and grapes. It's a tasty lunch. I don't have much to do today or this week for that matter because summer school ended on Monday! Sweet!! I have a two week break before the fall starts back up, and I am going to enjoy every bit of my time off...mainly because we are about to take a week long family vacation to Washington state. But you guys went there last year, you say? Yes, Jas and I did, but this time it is the whole Sudan fam...babies included. It is going to be BOMB. I will finally get to experience the infamous Sudan hiking that I have heard so much about. I will take plenty of pics and post them for sure! So lets see, what has happened this summer that is worth noting...

-made the switch from PC to Mac.
-got new bangs.
-lost Spud at the lakehouse....and then found him again (thank you Jesus).
-jas started a Bible study with some Liberians kiddos.
-finished summer school (2 more semesters to go!)
-went to the batting cages for the first time since 1991.
-rekindled my determination to save money through couponing.
-still waiting on the fire department.

It has been a nice summer and I am grateful for it! I also can't wait for football season! I have high hopes in Robert Griffin!! Bowl game this year, perhaps?? Also, Jas and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary on August 18th! We will be in Washington on the actual day, but we are having dinner at my fave restaurant, Tillman's Roadhouse on Friday before we leave! I can't believe we have been married for 2 years! It has been so fun and rewarding in so many different ways. And I am excited for this next year! Anyways, time for me to go be productive. Look for some pics from the Washington trip soon!

We lost Olive once when Jake and Emily went to Target. I am mortified of what we might do with grandchildren!
Happy anniversary a little early- I remember driving to the wedding in a MONSOON!
Have fun on the hiking. I'll be praying for you on that!!!!!!
