A group of six girlfriends graduate from high school when tragedy strikes. One of the girls dies in a car accident. The five remaining girls decide to put together a box that holds items that are dear to them. Once a year they will get together and talk about the items in the box- a beautiful butterfly box.
This book is the first in a series and it's focuses on a young girl named Lauryn. She wants to be a designer - a designer of modest formal gowns. On top of this she will be turning 30 soon and is still single. As a joke she and a male friend (right after graduation) said that if they were both single when they turn 30 they should meet and get married. She's 30 and single but is he? Why does everyone at her new job act as if they can't stand her? What's going on with some of her friends and was Ava's accident really an accident or was it foul play? Join Lauryn in this wonderful ride with the butterfly girls.
I really loved this book! I can't wait to read the others in the series when they come out.

Brandon being saved.
Jumping in the pool to be saved.
Jumping in the pool! When we first got to the pool, I saw that the current class was jumping in from the diving board. I showed Brandon and he said "I'm not doing that"! Within 5 minutes he was telling me that he wanted to jumped in the pool NOW! He jumped in twice - three if you count the first time when he had to "save" someone.
This is Brandon's second time jumping in the pool from the diving board! He loved it!!!!

It was hosted by Jimmy Smits. Once it got dark, it was to hard to take pictures of the people on the stage so I had to take pictures of the screen.
Brian Stokes Mitchell on the big screen.
Harolyn Blackwell on the big screen.
Hayley Westenra on the big screen.

Thanks to both Operation Second Chance and Aleethia, we had a wonderful time.

In fact I think I will look and see if I have another picture from a couple of months ago.....YES! I do. Here is one Cardinal from April visiting us :)Now, I don't have any pictures of lightening bugs - I do have to say that I find them.....strange. You (or I) will be standing in my backyard....it's getting dark and then suddenly zap! WHAT THE?????? Yes, that's how they get your attention. Suddenly they make a loud zapping noise and it looks like a spark of electricity in the air. Spooky!
Video of Brandon sliding on his tummy into his pool.
On his bum.
On his back. He kept saying "ok Mom, take a picture of me doing this".
Happy July 4th eveyone!
