July 10
Recovering from Girl's Camp. It was exhausting, hot, buggy, and had some very not fun parts to it. But there were also some rewarding times. Oh and I did archery for the first time and I shot a rifle at a target. Swimming in the lake. Good food. Made friendships. 

July 11
 Nala resting. Our kitchen cabinets were put in while I was at Girl's Camp! Dad & his best friend Mark who lives in Falmouth, MA who is a licensed contractor installed the cabinets and James installed the floor!

 We went to a 1 year old birthday party for Juniper Wood, our friends Landon & Brittany's daughter.
 Nala is resting because it's so dang hot and humid out.
 I tried to sell some of our things at a yard sale that the family I babysit for was hosting.
 It was SO humid but Logan seemed to have fun playing with his old toys.

I love the funny way Nala sits.
Babysitting Zoe and singing her Girl's Camp songs that get stuck in my head.
 This girl is going to be a ballet dancer, or she won't get to because her toes will be crushed before she's even 8 years old.
This is why we named our dog Nala. Fast forward to 0:30 and watch through the end.
 I'm the queen of babysitting.
 Healthy dinner.

 Love them.
 Arrived at my in-laws and my future sister-in-law Kate had a burn on her arm so my mother-in-law squeeze orange juice on it haha.
 I wonder if it helped.
