For the month of July, we went outdoors to have some soaking-wet fun with water balloons. Another day, we made funny hats and wore them. To celebrate Pioneer Day, everyone made dolls and dresses out of colored yarn. My favorite day of that entire work week was when Heidi Sue and the buds traveled downhill in two vans to get Aggie Ice Cream. When we reached there, I chose to try Rocky Road. We also played a fun bowling game here at the work site. We also had students come all the way from Korea to help us. They were lots of fun! We welcomed a new participant in July. Mandy became part of our DSL family and she is lots of fun. Mandy loves Garth Brooks and kittens. It was a great month here at DSL!

Summer program is in full swing. Since they are at school in December, the kids upstairs celebrated Christmas in July. They put up a Christmas tree, baked Christmas cookies and made gingerbread houses. They also did many activities with Common Ground. They went swimming and to the movies. Summer goes by so quickly--the last day of Summer Program is August 15! We will miss them!
