      1. Of course, Sherri! I love the Challenge YOUrself challenges (having played many times!). I've been TRYING to get back in here and update as challenges are released through the month, when my mini man gives me more than two seconds to breathe! I usually do a mid-month challenge round up, but July got away from me! Hopefully August will be less of a whirlwind :)
