June Sentence a Day

This month went by super fast (har har) and I can’t believe it’s already time for my Sentence a Day post! Have you heard of this kind of journaling? You jot down one sentence each day, and by the end of the month you have a pretty good snapshot of what your month was like! It’s easy to do and easy to keep up with. If you want to join us, link up below!


Now for the goods:

The kids and I went and read books to the animals at the shelter today. The kids really loved it!

  1. Look at all of those medals your daughter has earned! What a gymnast she must be. Sounds like June was an expensive month with the AC and car issues. It is always something, huh?

    Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. Maybe you two lovebirds can enjoy a little time together in the near future. Hope you are feeling better.


    1. She’s a great gymnast! I honestly don’t know where she gets it from! ha! And I am feeling better now. It was a combo of diet changes, medicine, and being dehydrated. Gotta love my 30’s!


  2. How much fun did Metropolis look? As an aside, I loved your playlists – I’m a mad playlist maker too…especially for road trips.


  3. Congrats on your anniversary!! OMG…you guys looked so young when you got married!!
    I love to see your daughter’s gymnastics—I used to compete as a kid/teenager, and even coached in college!!
    And kudo to your son at the dentist….as a retired dentist, it’s so nice to see a brave little one!!
