Loving Summer

Now that EFY is over and the K-12 schools are getting ready to start again, Rexburg feels nice and quiet. We have only a few neighbors home over the 7 week break, and can I just tell you how much I have enjoyed NOT having neighbors. It has been a delightful break from people, but I am ready to vacation somewhere else.

We have enjoyed going on bike rides, walks, reading, listening to the passing storms, and watching our favorite T.V. shows. This past week we have had rain accompanied by some thunder and lightening every night. I have been enjoying it thoroughly.

Sunday I tried making some double chocolate chip cookies. I failed. I have had the worst time making cookies as of late. They were excellent, however, after a few minutes soaking in milk. It reminded me of some good family desserts growing up, dunking Oreos. Sometimes we would warm up the milk to speed up the cookie softening process.
