The weather right now! Amazing! The middle of the day is still hot sometimes, I think we maybe hit 97 on Saturday. But the mornings. And the evenings! If it weren't for the mosquitos, I would be outside constantly.
I am one of those people that step outside and get 15 bites immediately. I tried those repellent bands, and still got bit, so then put on repellent (a natural based one) and still got bit. I think I'm doomed to use full strength DEET for the rest of my life.
Anyway, we have been spending quite a bit of time outside. Yesterday, we took a picnic dinner to the top of a local mountain that overlooks the city. Seems like everyone else had the same idea, but even with a bunch of other people, it was SO nice.

Our weeks are filled to the brim with living, and other "extras". Soccer, football, Atrium, American Heritage Girls, Troops of St. George. It seems there is always something going on. But as crazy as it's been, we have been enjoying ourselves, and when we are all back home we realize how much we love it here.
