As the summer comes to an end we are trying to take advantage of every opportunity we can to enjoy the warm weather and swimming at the lake. Living in North Georgia we have several lakes close to us, including Lake Lanier.
I don't know about you but I love budgeting. I love sitting down with the bills, a piece of paper and pencil and my calculator. Crazy? Well maybe. A few months ago I came across Dave Ramsey's My Total Money Makeover Online. I have always been a fan of spreadsheets, but takes budgeting to a new level.
I love to read, although I don't read as much as I did when I was a girl, I usually have a few books by my bedside that I am reading. This summer I started off reading a fair number of books for our library reading competition. My older children read 1-2 books a week and the little ones finished at least 15 books a month.
Wow, things have been quiet around my blog lately. One of my sons recently asked that I start writing more because he checks the blog daily and needed new information. We are all doing well, just busy with our large family end of the summer fun!
I told you that we had an exciting birthday planned for Rachel and Jubilee this year, but it was a surprise. Thursday night we went to the lake to BBQ and have dessert for Rachel's birthday. The celebration was really just a decoy so that Rachel would not know what we were planning for Friday!
