Although now that I think of it, Sam's might actually come in handy soon! This next month is going to be a busy one. On the 17th Joel's younger brother, Michael, is coming to live with us for an indefinite period of time. (If you think of it, please say a prayer for my nerves as this is the third sibling I have the pleasure of getting to be in the car with as they learn to drive.) His girlfriend will be staying with us for a few weeks, and then in August Joel's parents and other brother and sister will be here for two weeks. We rarely get to see family, so we're really excited. Sam and Allie will be moving in with each other, so that's another thing that hopefully goes well!
Yesterday, I made a strawberry poke cake for the first time. It is actually really tasty (and super easy)! It's a pretty light cake, in part thanks to the whip cream topping, so it's perfect for summer.
Christine, if you ever read this, this cake has jello in it, so I thought of you while eating my animal bones. Yummm yum. ;)
