My mother-in-law is visiting us for a month and we've been spending time as a family. The children are so happy to see her.
Summer is halfway done and Mike is working to get his recruiters back to a normal schedule. So far they are working from 8am to 6pm every night. Wednesday nights they work until 8-9pm because they have a poole function.
There have been budget cuts across the Marine Corps so I've noticed fewer trips to his command, which is good for us. Over all I think things are calming down a bit. September will be another busy time when school starts again. But for now things are looking pretty good.
Next month, August, we're planning on taking a mini-vacation for 4 days. Not too far but we're going to see SeaWorld and go to an Amusement Park and have some fun. It should be a lot of fun and I know the kids will enjoy it. I'm also hoping it won't be so hot then as it is now.
In any case, July looks like a pretty easy month. Mike had off for the 4th of July and we got to see the fireworks. It's been pretty calm and nothing out of the ordinary has happened.
