Hello, July! The heat finally caught up to us, and the thermometers are spiking, which is not such a great thing except for the air conditioning. On the flip side, the debt thermometer is creeping up and up. This month we made about $1500 worth of progress. Again, this was more than I could have imagined, but I am married to a hardworking man. I've had to finally accept not working this summer since summer school didn't pan out. It's frustrating that I can't help to make headway, but I'm thankful for time with the little'uns...usually. One of the greatest epiphanies I had this month is that as the kids get bigger, the grocery bill will increase quite a bit (something about them being bottomless pits and growing children and all that). I am so thankful that we will be blessed to have our student loans paid off by the time that happens, and that it won't be such a stretch. Because guess what? God provides.
A third of the way there, and Eli hasn't even left to do his Army training (the weekend warrior two weeks a year, which is really like 2.5 weeks), so we will make more headway in the next two months or so since Army work is more lucrative than public defender work.
Anyway, thanks for keeping up with us, and thanks for your prayers and encouragement!
