How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Recently, I've had at least three a lot of people ask me if everything is okay since I haven't written anything on the blog since May.  The short answer is "yes, everything is fine!" 

I've just been super busy, but it's mostly been good.

Cold Justice has been in full swing, filming for a new season, and we've been to Wisconsin, Florida, and Oklahoma.  The new season premieres on the Oxygen Channel this Saturday, August 4th.  It's going to be a great one.  Thus far, I've (mercifully) not made any on camera appearances.

Both of my kids are out of school for the summer, and (for the first time) my oldest isn't going to summer day camp.  I've been torturing him by making him watch historical movies and read quality books.  He is considering joining the military just to get away from me.

My youngest has had a recurrence of the medical issue that freaked us out so badly last year.  This year we were a little more emotionally prepared for it and we've got the amazing people of Texas Children's Hospital working on it.  He seems to feel fine and we are hoping that this is something he grows out of.

We've also had some fun family vacations here and there to New Braunfels and Orange Beach, AL.  My oldest and I are going to Memphis in a few weeks for some more history -- provided he hasn't run away from home by then.

And then, there was an insanely complicated Injury to a Child case that I tried alongside the awesome Melissa Dickson against prosecutors Joe Allard and Claire Nguyen.  The jury found our client not guilty of intentional injury to a child but she was convicted of Injury to a Child by Omission.  She received probation from the Court.  I'd be remiss if I didn't point out how great Joe and Claire were to try a case against.  Claire's closing argument was awesome.  If you haven't seen her in trial yet, you should.

So, all of this is probably far more information than anyone really wanted to know, but I thought I'd just let you know I was still alive!
