It has been far too long since I posted, but it has been a very busy past couple of weeks! I hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July. I spent the holiday weekend as I usually do in Gun Lake, Michigan, where every year we have a special reunion. We have the best time, and I feel so fortunate to get to spend time with my wonderful cousins, aunts, uncles, and little second-cousins! This year there were more of us than ever before, thanks to a blessed addition of a new baby girl to our family - Sailor Lee Buller. She joined us for her first summer on the lake. That makes twenty-three of us! We had a smashing time complete with all our traditions - setting off fireworks over the lake, catching fireflies and fishing, campfires with guitar singing and smores, wakeboarding and jetskiing, and plenty of good old "dock time." Unfortunately, on our last evening during a good-natured game of Capture the Flag, my mom accidentally hit a flag pole in the front yard and got a horrible gash to her head. It was very scary because the cut was quite deep. After spending the night in the emergency room, she has been recovering with stitches and pain medication. So between all this family excitement - both great and a bit dire - I've been away from posting. Looking forward to catching up with you all!
