Bittersweet June

June has been beautiful and bittersweet all at the same time.

Our Josh graduated from sixth grade.  I am still processing that it occurred.
We are so proud of him and all that he has learned and accomplished over the last seven years.

 The last 3 years Josh has had the privilege of being involved in a small homeschool co-op.
It was such a special season in his life and something that we will truly miss.
It has been a huge blessing and gift from the Lord.

The kids celebrated their years together with a major water war.
And a giant water slide. So fun!!

Good thing that there was a lot of water, cause I couldn't hold back the tears 
as we left the parking lot for the last time.

Then my little baby turned seven!! SEVEN!! 
When did this happen??  I can just barely pick him up anymore.
We love our little bear so much.

We sent him on a scavenger hunt for his new fishing pole... you just can't wrap those!!
Which do you think he likes better?  Present or cash??

Last week after these celebrations was a bit rough.  I think it was a big transition week.
It seemed like the kids couldn't stop rubbing each other the wrong way.

I think transitions are like that sometimes.  At least they are for me.
I can get seriously moody when I'm ending one thing and moving on to another.

So we made a "summer bucket list" to usher in the summer.
To help us look forward to the season ahead and make some fun plans.

Hopefully, we can fit it all in and enjoy ourselves!!
Do you have some fun summer plans?

What sweet boys! I love your bucket list. Such a great idea!

Totally copied the idea, Karen. Not sure where it first originated, but it's been out there in Blogland for quite some time now. :)

Wow what an emotional time it's been for you. That list looks like you have a great summer planned

Heather said...

We just did a summer list too. And many of our plans are the same as yours. And that photo of J-Bear with his money is priceless!!
