I promise I will get back to blogging about our trip soon.  Just been a busy week and I haven't had much time to sit down and blog.  As we were heading home on Sunday we got a text from one of our neighbors that our house had some damage from storms that came through on Saturday night.  They were rough storms and we had some damage to the roof.  Nothing too bad we thought.  
 Well Tuesday morning I noticed the carpet in our study seemed damp and I looked down at the baseboards and saw they were all warped.  Ugh!!!  Somehow water got into the front 3 rooms during the storms.  Not real sure how it got in (probably around the windows).  So we had to get a crew out to pull out the flooring and baseboards.  It was already starting to mold after just a couple of day.
 Needless to say it is a giant mess in the front of our house.  There are blowers and dehumidifiers trying to dry it all out.  It looks like the wood floors weren't damaged thankfully.  We have been in "discussions" with the insurance company to try to get them to help pay for the damages.  Never a fun thing.  I don't do well with chaos in my house!  Oh well.  It will get fixed and all will be fine.
We have had some fun this week in between dealing with mold and getting back in the swing of things with work.  The kids were so excited to see their friends again.  You would have thought they had been apart for longer than a week.
 Tuesday night they asked to have a sleepover and I said yes.  They had a great time making cookies and watching a movie together.  So thankful to have such good friends next door to have impromptu sleepovers with during the summer.

 We are loving summer and how the days are long and full of fun.  We enjoyed ice cream and visiting with neighbors tonight.  It is so great not to have to worry about going to bed early.  I just love summer!!
