In April we rescued (from an kind but not prepared rescuer) a momma cat and her two kittens.
We were on a Lord of the Ring kick, having recently seen the Hobbit, so momma cat is Rosie Cotton (Rosie for short), and the two kittens are Fili (the white one) and Kili (the darker one).
What we didn't know was that Rosie was already pregnant. In June we had 5 more kittens join us. They also are LOTR names. The white and gray one is Arwen (the only girl), then the two orange ones are Pippen and Merry. The gray tabby with socks is Frodo (always the fattest) and the dark gray stripey one is Aragorn. If anyone's interested, we need to find them new homes soon. VERY soon.
In late April we took a trip up to Chimney Rock state park. It was a beautiful view, but it wasn't nearly as green as it is now. We climbed to the top, and Andrew promptly climbed on top of this rock and assumed the position.
We've had an incredibly wet summer. The wettest on record. By several inches. For the month of July, our area has received 14 inches of rain, 10 inches above normal. I've never been so thankful to live on a hill. Flood warnings happen weekly, sometimes daily. It feels like we've gone from one extreme to the other, between Arizona and North Carolina.
And soon we'll have Sarah in to have her wisdom teeth removed, since they are messing up all the work the braces did.
Lots of goings on. Hope your summer has been more fun and less eventful than ours. :)
