June in Review

-I finished out my 4th year at my great little school, prepared for summer professional development I'm teaching, and started a new professional blog and twitter for sharing lesson ideas
-Began the new Junior League year as a Vision & Planning Liaison with an awesome training on implementing change
-Celebrated my cousin's upcoming wedding with a fun couple's shower and a sweet visit from Maggie and baby L to see our house for the first time
-Doggie surgery and recovery time for Duncan's paw problems hopefully, he will not be a cone forever
-Started summer break (coffee, Netflix, and yard work) and for the very first time Matt's not teaching or working until late July so we're home together ALL SUMMER LONG, lucky us!
-Lots of fun reading for me (I think I'm up to 7 novels for the month) and lots of disc golf for Matt at the nearby Towne Lake course
-Took our big vacation for 2014 - 3,400 miles out west....

Around Downtown Challenge
-Rick's Chophouse with the crew for Andy's Birthday - fun, fun!
-Paciugo Gelato Cafe
-Hutchins BBQ with my mom and grandfather

Around the House
-Bought a new cushion for our broken outdoor bench
-Fixed some pool algae issues
-Did more weeding and caring for our landscaping - the grass grows like crazy here with no watering (not sure if it's the shade, soil, or both) but we'll take it
-Mulched side bed by driveway and back door deck area
-Relocated the hydrangea to a shady corner and moved potato bush from planter to soil by holly bushes
-Bought/assembled two adirondack chairs and ottomans
