You know... it's a weird blogging thing. I really enjoy reading all of my friends' blogs and seeing what they're up to. However, when it comes to me wanting to post on my blog, I feel guilty. I feel like I'm just writing about what's going on with us, and that it's a selfish thing. I don't know why I should feel that way, when I enjoy reading other blogs to keep up with what's going on in their lives.
I guess I was also noticing how few comments I get out there, and I started to wonder if people really even read this. If so, please leave me a word of encouragement. ;o)

Scott is still up in Tulsa - for who knows how long. We got to see him most weekends until summer came - now it's every other weekend. We miss him, but it's working out ok.

Dani is doing very well. She's soaking up vocabulary like a sponge! She's been counting in Spanish, but now she's picking up on the English numbers. It's fun to hear her say something in Spanish then give the English word too. Hooray for my bilingual baby!
She loves to hug and kiss - although most of the time, she's wanting to kiss on the lips (maybe from watching Mommy and Daddy?). We went to breakfast with my friend, Aprel, and her little girl, Liberty - Dani's sweet friend. As we were leaving, the girls hugged, and then Dani kissed her on the lips. he he he I'll work with her on the cheek kiss...

I've been staying busy here, and there will be company coming throughout the rest of the summer. Scott's fam will be celebrating the Fourth here with us - grandparents, parents, cousins, aunts/uncles, etc. Two weeks later, my bestest friend in the whole world, Joanne, will be coming with her hubby and little girl for a visit. Yay!!!
The following week, I will be blessed with the visit of an old friend from my high school days in Ecuador - Erin. I can't wait!

So, I'm wondering - why is it that summer is so much busier than the rest of the year - when I'm not working either way? Do more people just plans things in the summer months? Why is it that it's already going to be the first of July soon, and I feel like summer just began? AGH! Where is the time going???

Anyhooo... to all my sweet friends out there, whom I haven't seen in a long time - I do think of you often. Really, I do... and I wonder why I have been so horrible at keeping in touch. Maybe blogs make that easier - but thus prevent the need to really get together - when you can read about what's going on.


Well, I hope you all are having a fabulous summer!
