june in review


Sometimes I like to pretend that summer is supposed to be carefree and easy, like it used to be -- you know, back when I was a kid, in high school or heck, even in college. The reality is, summer with children and responsibilities is hard work. I've kept wondering when summer is going to feel real and it's almost over! Ahhh!

June started out with my husband finishing his last week of teaching while I headed to girls camp and our kiddos stayed with my mom. Thank heavens for mothers! Life savers. I'm not sure if I can speak for how that first week of June was for AJ, but Girl's Camp was a sweet experience. Spending 5 days with the young women in our Ward was rewarding, funny and peaceful. I will forever admire their spiritual strength and willingness to strive for righteousness. My family survived and we immediately jumped into enjoying the summer by buying snow cones 4 times the following week.

The week after getting back from camp, we also moved into our new (old) house. Best day of my life. Or worst. Moving stinks, but being in a home that YOU own is great. We worked from sun-up to sun-down everyday for 2 weeks -- packing, unpacking, cleaning, organizing. It was craziness! Every night we were exhausted and somehow woke up with enough energy to start again the next day. How we survived I'll never know! Truthfully, I can't even complain because of the work that AJ, his dad and brother did for the previous 7 weeks. My grandma told me that if a marriage can survive a remodel, it can survive anything. Well, we're still married, so that's good news.

It's been amazing how quickly the last few months have gone. It feels like they existed somewhere long ago in a different world. I mean really, how does time move so quickly and so slowly all at the same time? Mind boggling.
