The past month has been a blessing. I have a lot to be thankful for. When I “should” have been writing this post in May, we were packing for our first family vacation ever. And oh my, it was wonderful.
If you remember from my very brief review in May, there were two things that consumed that month.
Paul graduating from seminary. An amazing and profoundly sweet time for our family,
… and Hopey finishing kindergarten. These pictures make my heart hurt; she looks so much bigger and grown up!
We had a special pizza lunch celebration with Paul for her last day of school. She got a special gift for finishing, too! I was so happy with how we ended and am looking forward to doing it again this year. It is amazing how much more time we have during the days now that it is summer. Homeschooling technically didn’t consume that many hours, but it surely did change the whole look of our days. I am loving summer and the girls are having a blast playing together.
So, that’s basically May in review. = )
We were able to go on vacation the first week of June and since then it has been all things baby, and house, and car, and church. Thankfully, about the third week of June my nesting instinct kicked in hard. We ran around the house doing all sorts of stuff. (Remember all that spring cleaning that wasn’t getting done? Well, nesting took care of that.) = )
After about a week of that came days of extreme sleepiness, and now I’m in a strange mix of the two. It still feels like there is a lot to do before baby comes, but I think we’d be okay. = )
So to summarize, I’m not going to list specific things for June since it is
almost over. Besides that it has basically been a wild dash to do as much as possible, whatever comes into my brain or whatever I’m motivated to do at the moment.
Lord-willing, I will do a normal end of the month the post for June and make plans for July. They will be complicated. (eat, sleep, nurse)
(Okay, I wrote this a few days ago and am just now editing it and getting ready to post… we will have to see about the July goals.) = )
How were May and June for you?
Until July! = ) or if the baby comes, September! *hopefully, just kidding*
