It’s July already?!?! Well, the weather certainly makes it FEEL like July, but the calendar from this year is just flying by. Here’s what June looked like in my world:
9 Months for Alice
On the first of the month, I brought Alice to the doctor for her 9 month checkup. The doctor was very pleased with her progress, and we were told that Alice would need to graduate from her infant car seat soon (#allthetears).
On the second day of June, our family held a memorial for my dad. Over 400 people came to the memorial service! This was incredibly heartwarming, knowing that he had made such a profound impact on so many lives. As Frank was an avid sailor, we arranged for a local charter ship to be present at the memorial.

Alice and I went to visit the daycare/preschool where I had wanted her to go starting at the age of 1. I knew there is typically a waiting list of at least a year, but they were able to find a spot for Alice to attend 2 days a week starting in August! I can’t wait for her to make friends and learn so much!
And then…the bronchitis came. Honestly, this thing was a BEAST. I almost never take sick days at work, but my throat was sore, I could barely speak, and I had a horrible, hacking cough. I’m almost FINALLY done with antibiotics, but just as I’m getting better, C caught it. Knock on wood, Alice still seems healthy, and hopefully we’ll keep it that way!
Early 4th Fun
I wrapped up the month by bringing Alice with me to my friend’s annual 4th of July party. We only stayed for a short while, but it was long enough for Alice to become fascinated with an ax-throwing competition and with their little Jack Russell terrier Gilly!
What did June look like for you?
