Eva borrowing my camera and takings tons of pictures and making videos! Cool. (Some of the seedlings we planted are starting to bloom!)
Overhearing a mother at the library talking to her son: "Secrets of the Dark Side? (or something like that) I don't think we need to be checking out this book!" Cool.
Gaining several pounds every time I get my period and then getting back to where I was the next week. Not cool.
Getting my period every three weeks. So not cool.
Eva going across the street to ask our neighbor to watch Jack while we were gone, then coming home and saying, "Well, that went well!" Oh, to be that confident. Cool.
Meeting a new niece. (Marc's sister Lisa's baby Sophia.) Cool.
Getting Little House on the Prairie to read with Eva. Cool.
Having a whole bunch of hideous girls' camp photos tagged on Facebook. Very uncool. (I painstakingly removed all the tags!)
Lots of recent thunderstorms. Cool.
Max having only 7 more days of summer school to endure. Cool.
Getting my annual dose of giant cold sores on my chin on Friday and being unable to get a prescription in time to stave off the worst of it. Totally uncool. (I look like a mutant.)
Buck, a documentary we saw last weekend. So very cool. Highly recommended. Especially to my sister and my dad. Or anyone who likes horses. Or amazing people.
Lucas leaving early tomorrow morning for his first Scout camp, where they will be backpacking for 25-30 miles and using pack goats. He was instructed to keep his pack (borrowed from Landon) to under 1/3 his body weight. He did it! Cool. (But we are really going to miss him! Also, I have instructed him not to stand by any ledges or cliffs and not to do anything to attract bears...)
