How is your July going? We’re usually in Brazil in July, so I’d kind of forgotten how hot the dead of summer in Sacramento is. We just got back from a short visit to Napa Valley and are now preparing for our first family camping trip. I’m so excited to sleep under the redwoods! And to say that my kids are excited would be a huge understatement. I hope you’re staying cool this weekend. My links for your weekend reading, as always:
