June feels like it should be two different months. School’s in June and school’s out June. They are so drastically different it’s hard to imagine them coexisting in the same calendar square.
The first part includes choir concerts, preschool drop offs, and last day of school pics.
This was technically Adrienne’s last day of school, but she wouldn’t let me take the traditional morning picture. I should have followed her to school to take it.
We got a few nice bike rides in and settled into the new cheer schedule.
Sof learned how to ride a two wheeler! She’s taken quite a few spills, but gets back up and keeps going. She’s loving her new found freedom riding to her little buddies houses. Her two little girlfriends both have kickstands, so naturally she wanted one too. She asked daily for several weeks, and the night it happened was a little like Christmas.
We celebrated Uncle Rick’s birthday on a beautiful June night.
Lexi got a haircut. She’s been wanting to go shorter(not quite this short, but it’ll grow) and summer is perfect time for that. I think it looks adorable on her!
We spent a fair amount of time at the pool. Sof is even more of a fish this year!
We had a “Welcome Summer” subdivision party. They had so much for the kids!
We had bowling night at Barb and Jeff’s which included Bocce ball, and I had a neighborhood girls night out.
Lexi went with the cousins to spend a week split between Grandma and Papa’s house and Aunt Nette’s. She had a fabulous time, and when I picked her up at Oma’s she was loving swimming!
Lexi and Sof bicker a lot, but they really miss each other when they’re apart. It was a sweet reunion followed by lots playing and snuggling in the following days.
(We met at a graduation party for our old neighbor Alex. I can’t believe how fast these kids are growing!)
Lexi was happy to see Scratches too!
Adrienne mentioned she wanted to go to the One Republic concert, and Mark and Steve jumped right on it! They bought tickets and we loaded up the white van!
I got a manicure.
Adrienne apprenticed musical theater camp at the studio. Anna is always a favorite camper.
We went to the balloon festival for the second year. We prepped the kids all the way there that we were just going to see the balloons. NO RIDES. The balloons were very cool.
Once the balloons took off we agreed to maybe buying a few tickets for rides. Two unlimited wristbands and 3 hours later, they had rode everything and seen fireworks.
We ended the month with a trip to the waterpark with Kohn’s, which seems to happen at least once each summer:)
You know how Sof loves the water…she’s not nervous or shy. She spent a lot of time alone in the wave pool, being very bold! Can you see the little orange life jacket in the middle of the big pool? That’s my girl.
When I think back on June it seems like it was pretty rainy, but the pictures sure don’t show that!
