The June 2017 Wrap Up

Posted July 2, 2017 by Tina in Reviews / 10 Comments


Will you look at that! I’m posting my first wrap up since like February. I’ve been in a horrible reading slump and in June I finally kicked its ass!

Behind The Scenes:
  • Little 1 recently started wearing glasses this year and it turns out he has a lazy eye. We’re doing patch therapy at the moment and we’re hoping it will correct the problem.
  • Little 1 and Little 2 start school on August 3rd so I’m looking into doing some last minute summer activities for them do.
  • I moved into my new bullet journal. I’m pretty excited about starting a new one.
  • I finished watching Lucifer and I really enjoyed it.
  • We went to a couple baseball games. 90s night was my favorite.
  • Hubby celebrated his 25th birthday but if you ask him he’s 21 forever.
  • We took the kids to the splash park by the house. Only Little 1 and 2 enjoyed it.
  • Little 1 started basketball. We decided to put him on a team closer to the house instead of driving 45 minutes away but to be honest, I prefer the YMCA that’s 45 minutes away, we’ll be going back there after this season is over.
  • Hubby started going to school to get his CDL (commercial driving license).

  • Congrats on beating the slump! Happy July!

  • 13 books is great! Nice to get out of a reading slump! Happy July!

  • You posted a bunch this month. 13 books is awesome! Yay for getting out of the blogging slump.

  • I can’t wait to see Little 1s bullet journal—what a great idea!

  • Yay! Another bullet journal blogger! I’m on my second one and you’re right, it’s fun to start a new one!

    Isn’t Lucifer awesome? I’m really loving that show!

    Congrats on reading 13 books last month! You had a much more productive month than I did, but I’m hoping that July will be better for me.

  • Congrats on breaking out of your reading slump!

  • Wow. I wish I could get through as many books and make this much progress towards challenges. I’m ridiculously impressed!

    I’m
    jealous that you’re so into bullet journalling that you’re onto your
    second. I tried it once but couldn’t get the hang of it.

    Hope July goes as well for you 🙂

    You have so much going on in your life–amazing amount accomplished in June. School starts very early for your kids compared to ours here.
