The greater Canton/Stark County community is proud to host the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival. Join nearly 700,000 people at 18 diverse events over an 11-day period as they celebrate the induction of football heroes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame located in Canton, Ohio! A dedicated staff, team of more than 4,200 volunteers, and generous sponsors give the support necessary to plan and stage these action-packed festivities.

Some of the events include the Queen Pagent, Balloon Classic Invitational (my familys fav), Concert and fireworks, Community Parade (this is REALLY cool), my husbands favorite-The Ribs Burnoff.

Then theres the 2010 Hall of Fame Game where the Cowboys face The Bengals.

It's busy time around here and it gets crazy crowded as some many people come in for this event.I can't wait to take the kids to see the hot air balloons tonight. They're so pretty when their all lit up.

Embracing Your Second Calling

Embracing Your Second Calling By Dale Hanson Bourke

This is a Christian book about embarking on the second part of your life as a woman. There are a lot of scriptures and references to other books in it. Also it's full of little Acts and Reflections for the reader to do.

The book was well written and it was an easy read. It just wasn't for me though. Maybe it's because I'm only in my mid 30's. Normally I can read a book of that size in 2 hours. This took me a few days just because I couldn't get into it. Like I said, it was well written, just not for me. I'm passing it along to my mother whom I know will thoroughly enjoy it and appreciate it more.

The main thing I got out of the book was to not hold onto your past. You don't want to spend the rest of your life as a bitter person. The was a lot of good reflection topics and scriptures to ponder. She spoke a lot about Naomi and reference to her a lot.

The book was inspiring and I would recommend it to woman who are in their midlife.

It's July

WOW!!!! Can't believe it's July already!!! Sumner is flying by like crazy!! Seems like there is so much I want to do this summer but I'm running out of time. I've just been so busy but yet it seems as if I've gotten nothing accomplished. This month I'm going to work REALLY HARD on budgeting and beingmore frugal. I'm sure this will last about a week, but hey, I'm going to give it a shot. I'm going to make a page called budgeting or something so keep checking it out to see how my "adventures" are going, or not LOL.

Any exciting plans for the 4th? My baby will be 3 on the 3rd. Can't believe it. My sweet, devilish lil guy is growing up. I have 5 kids but it's sad when you realize that your last one is growing up. It's exciting in a way yet it's bittersweet. They become their own person, more independant. Having children is such a blessing and all of mine are unique in their own way.

Well, I'm off to TRY to get my budgeting going and my coupon hunting so wish me luck.
