July Highlights

July was a great month! It wasn’t too busy, which was really nice. :)

This is actually the view out of one of my bedroom windows.

--For the 4th of July my family and I went over to some good friends of ours' house and had a wonderful time visiting, eating dinner, and just having a great time. After it got dark some of us older kids drove down to a park where fireworks were being set off. They were all super pretty. All 11 of us kids who went and watched the fireworks crowded up on top of a firetruck and watched the show from there. (And yes, we did have permission to be up there. ;) ) 

--Towards the middle of July three of my friends and I had what we call a girls night. We stayed up super late watching movies, playing games, eating snacks, and having a wonderful time. :)

--My family and I have been having a fun time watching America’s Got Talent. It has been so fun. :) There are some acts that are not good to watch so we just skip those ones, but for the most part they are all good. 

--Last week some friends came over to our house and all of us kids went swimming in our pool. It was a ton of fun! :)

  1. Your scenery looks like Eastern Washington scenery! Obviously, you're not that far away! :)
    I enjoyed reading about your month! Hope you have a great August!

    1. Oh cool! A couple years ago I went to Washington, and the scenery did look like it does here. ;)
      I’m glad you enjoyed it! :) Thanks, Rebekah, you have a great August too! :D

  2. Whoa, that's what you see out your window?! Amazing! :D

    Really enjoyed reading about your July, Rebekah. The girls' night sounded like a ton of fun! ^_^

    1. Yes, it is. It’s a little harder to see in the spring and summer time because there is a tree that blocks some of the view, but in the fall and winter when all the leaves fall it’s a clear view. ;)

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Blessing! :) Oh yes, the girls night was a ton of fun! :D

  3. Apparently I missed this post while we were gone camping...because just now I was replying to an email and suddenly thought "hey, I don't remember reading Rebekah's July highlights!" :P

    You read twelve books this month?! :D Wow, that's awesome! I read like...six. ;) I enjoyed reading this post! :)

    1. Yeah, I did post this while you were gone. ;)

      I’m happy with the amount of books I read this month! :) Although some of them I didn’t start in July, I just finished in July. ;) Six books is good too. :)
      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Faith! :)
