On July 2nd I turned 27 and we had a great day! We joined some friends at the pool for a bit, then Kaitlyn watched Carson for a couple of hours while Sean spoiled me with a shopping trip. I haven't been shopping for me in a long time due to pregnancy, but this trip was timed perfectly so I could get some new goodies for my return to work (next week). I am sad it's time to go back, but will be able to work from home a couple of days a week and Sean's cousin Kaitlyn will be watching Carson at our house the other three days for the next six weeks. I'm thankful for a flexible job and have to remind myself this is harder for me than it is Carson. There may be a time in the future where I don't work outside the home, but for now this is the best for our family and I'm trying to be obedient to that.
On the 3rd we hosted a BBQ to celebrate my b-day and Independence Day with friends. It was neat to have friends from high school, work and church all in our home together.

|Sean has had these American flag Converse shoes since 8th grade. They used to be worn a lot more, but now (thankfully) only make an appearance on this appropriate holiday.|
