I missed my Blue Monday post with Sally and all the fun folks who post! It was a busy weekend, a very hot temperature wise weekend and Sunday I had to cool off and decompress! Monday was the same, Nick took a summer course to finish a class he missed due to his track and field season and he had to file his FASA! He received his acceptance call from the coach at the Kansas Wesleyan's! I am personally overjoyed! We had hoped he could attend this university from the beginning two years ago but his two years at Cowley put him on the right path for this private university! It is seven hours from our home to the campus door and we are so tickled! Plus the coach is one amazing Christian man and he is the very best kind of influence you want on your kid!

We have had a busy month at my office. The doctor is on vacation next week. It will be great to catch up on things that otherwise have to take a backseat. I have had a streak of good luck. I am not sure I am a believer of good luck but whatever has happened lately is great! It started out by my winning a wonderful cookbook at Linda's:
Friday on the way home from work, I picked my honey up at the bus and as he was driving home I heard a contest on the radio called "Dive In Movie". Held at Elitch's amusement park you can swim and watch a fun movie. It came with a four pack of tickets. I think I might give those to the four kiddos.
Rebekah will start training for a brand new job Monday 28th. It is a real blessing, as she just lost her health insurance as of June 30th because she turned 26 and finished college. We celebrated with a nice lunch Saturday with her dad and myself. It was a nice afternoon.
Now we can go shopping for some new work outfits! This lil gal is a wonderful, articulate young lady. She is a special person with a good heart.
This sweet baby is my honey! He has one of those milestone birthdays tomorrow. It is also the birthday of my late father. So I am wishing my husband a great birthday and I know my dad in heaven is enjoying his day too.
I am thinking the small boy in the front is my dad as a little fellow. I wish I could have all their voices recorded so I would never ever forget the sound of them.

Lots of prayers have been answered. I will ask for continued prayer for sweet Tarrah. She is still unsure what is causing her seizures.
Andrew, Tarrah, Roger and Colton. Still no answers to why Tarrah keeps having such terrible seizures.

I am soooo happy for you that your son will be so close to home while away at college. My babies (big ones) are scattered up and down the Eastern seacoast, but thankfully we all have phones and occasional visits.

I wish your hubby a fantastic day for his special birthday. My hubby and my brother shared the same birthday, and it was such fun celebrating every year. They are gone now, but I have beautiful memories.

I visited with an old (yup, we're getting old) friend the other day, and it was so nice to see her. I think we'll do lunch soon. I' wondering if I should ask her to wear a red hat so we can have our own "red hat" society. haha.

It is very hot here, but tomorrow promises to be much cooler. I'm saving my household projects to do while it is cool. Low to mid 70's. I can definitely dig that!

Now it's time to rustle up some supper for myself and Pogo. You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

Sweet post, Anne.
I'm so thrilled for Rebekah! ... and Nick as well! :)))))

I can sure empathize with your mention of catching up on things at the office while the boss is away. Early on in our relationship she was preparing for a week-long absence and starting fretting that I wouldn't have anything to keep me busy. Seriously! I love my GM to pieces, but sometimes she doesn't have a clue.

Happy birthday to your sweet hubby!
