Summertime, Summertime, Summertime...

Silas and Jonah found this perfectly formed bird nest in our yard a few days ago.  I don't know what kind of bird built it, but it is incredible how sturdy it is.  The bottom is covered with mud; Silas says that is so the eggs don't fall out.  Sadly, this nest is so clean...I don't think it was even used, and we found no signs of eggs or baby birds anywhere near.  The abandoned house next door is home to about 20 cats, so possibly that is where the answer lies.

Well, Tori is at Camp LRCA this week, meeting up with one of her best friends, Annie P.  Annie and Tori only see each other two or three times a year...since Annie lives in Michigan City, camp and birthdays are just about it for them.

Ben is spending the week in, well, who knows where?  Somewhere down in Southern Illinois (a foreign country, I hear) at CIY (Christ in Youth- a conference for teens).  HIs lovely Shelly is with him. College starts August 22, so he needs to come home and get himself ready for that.

We were supposed to go to Six Flags today, but the heat advisory scared us.  Plus, we are pretty well tired out from a busy weekend.  We traveled to Indiana to visit a church, staying afterwards to have a picnic at one of the lake with the staff, then traveled home in yesterday's intense heat with no air conditioning in the truck. So, instead of riding roller coasters, Si and Jonah went cherry picking with the Wifler family, and I'm enjoying a day with nothing that absolutely has to be done.
