Hello! Can you believe June is more then half over??!! Wishing it would sloooow down so we could enjoy more warm summer weather. Around here we are enjoying our break!! We are finally settling into a little routine and kids trying to sleep in a bit longer then school days. Even having the little ones here has been fun again too, we get all day together instead of just part of a day. YAY!
Renee did graduate, 3 weeks ago already. YAY!! It was such a fun day for us! Getting ready now to have her grad party this weekend. Still can't believe she's done but excited for the next chapter.
We celebrated Kristin's belated birthday!! I picked out the cake, so cute and just right for her.
We had another girl date!! Went to Scooter Dogs and it took 5 tries to get this picture, lol.
Can you say STRAWBERRIES!!! We've had hundreds for a few weeks now. Can bsrely keep up on picking them all and passing them out and snacking on them ourselves. Rich is so happy with them and some look good enough to be in a food magazine he says. The 3 long rows in the garden above are where they are growing. So many of them!! YAY!!
Last but not least is a Mandala Sienna made here last week. She remembered from last summer and asked if she could make one. We didn't have much in the yard but she made it work and it looks GREAT!! So happy to see her enjoying the same things I do. Scrapbooking is next on her list, she made several requests to get her another album and photos for her to start.
So there's our around here update for now. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the weekend. Thanks so much for reading! Have a great week!

Day in the Life... June

Hello, I'm sharing my Day in the Life pictures from June 4th with you today. I love doing this each month and seeing the difference in each one. This time the kids are home on break so it was nice to not just have me in here. I usually start with some kind of sunrise/sky picture and end the day that way but it didn't work out that way today. This was the first picture I took using my camera which I tried to use mostly for this day. I love seeing my space on the table, always has some kind of art and reading material, notice the sunlight coming in too, love seeing that each day too.
I have to say thank you to Megan from The Nerd Nest who is inspiring us to join her each month with this project. I've even thought to put all these in a mini album, would be so neat to see a whole year's worth of DITL photos in one place I think.
I'm going to share photos mostly this time instead of writing about each one. Here we go:
I have to sneak and get pictures of Sam whenever I can
We went to my sister's to have some cousin time while we can.Camryn was still in sleeping so Summer surprised her and got in to wake her. Of course, they didn't want their picture taken.
I love that I got the 3 of them and can see me in the mirror
back at home and the sky was gorgeous
Rich is home so we hang out by the garden and admire it
A DQ date with Renee on her night off from DQ, lol.
last picture of the day, THE CAVS!!
I loved the pictures I got from today, not posed ones fun ones that still tell the story. Not as much of the kids as I had planned but got what they would let me, I also took selfies with each girls in the van on their phones that I will include in my PL. I was in and out a lot today and the dog got 4 good walks since it was nice out. Sam and I played soccer and cards which makes me HAPPY! Was nice that I could get my nieces in too. Next month it will be July 4th, I might choose to do the day after instead, will see when it's closer to the date and what plans we have.
Thanks so much for reading! Have a great week!
