Sweet Summertime Challenge at DI’S DIGI DESIGNS Challenge

It's been awhile since I've had a creation.  Finally have one this time.  Our older son graduated from high school on May 18 and we had a huge party for him and 11 of his friends.  It was awesome, but took a lot of time and energy and then about 2 days to clean up from it!
Our property was hit by 2 tornados about 15 minutes apart on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th.   We spent an entire week with no power and no water because we are on a well that is powered electrically.  With 6 humans and 5 dogs living here, it was quite a bad week and was really hot here.  Also because of all the destruction, we couldn't get out of our driveway for an entire week - fallen trees everywhere and downed power line laying right across our driveway entrance.  We were super fortunate to not have any damage to our house itself, just our property, but we lost over 100 trees:(  Many people here have been displaced from their homes and some homes had to be completely demolished b/c no way to fix them.  The area is still under major clean up/repair.
Last but not least, my boys and I traveled with a group of 16 other boys and 8 other adults from our area to London and Manchester, England and Edinburg, Scotland.  It was a wonderful trip and our first time in Europe.  The boys got to play soccer against local competition and we visited many football (soccer) stadiums and historical sites.  We were gone for 10 days, which went way too fast.  I hope to go back to Europe again.
So now we are back home and all will be crazy again in less than 2 weeks as my husband is having double knee replacement surgery.  Please pray that all goes well.
Anyway, happy Saturday to everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying the start of your weekend.
