One Little Word Blog Hop - July 1st

Hello! Whether you arrived here from Ruth's blog as part of the One Little Word Blog Hop, or you are here because you love me and drop by regularly... Welcome! I love visitors! 

As the June assignment for One Little Word, Ali asked us to get creative with a page of cards. But for me, with my word "FOCUS" June was focused on family and friends.  Creative never quite happened, so I don't have a page to share.  I'm hoping to get one done today or tomorrow... maybe... and I'll post it if I do...  Instead, what I have to share today is how  FOCUS on Family and Friends played out in June...


We started with a Prom.

Followed by a break up. 
Then a Graduation:


It was fast and furious. My babies are now all grown up and ready to take on the world.  


We followed with a high speed round of interviews, a trip for Sarah to Washington D.C., and an on-the-spot offer and acceptance of a job!  Sarah will be working for NAFSA beginning August 6th.  We have very little time to find her an apartment and get her moved!


We ended the month with a Graduation Party:
We had lots of family.
We had lots of desserts!
 We had WAY too much food! Lots and lots of leftovers...
We had a friendly game of sibling badminton (this is me missing the shot) playing girls against boys.  Funny thing is, we all pretty much suck equally at badminton!
Siblings with Dad - unfortunately we didn't think to get this shot until Jerry had already left. But you can see him in the badminton shot with the navy blue tee.


The girls had lots of friends attending as well, but they came and went in small groups throughout the day, so I don't have a representative shot until I have time to make a collage.


All in all, it was a crazy busy hectic whirlwind month.  I'm exhausted but happy.  FOCUS on family and friends was a huge success.  Would love to say I can relax now, but July and August are already shaping up to be just as frenetic!

How fun to see such family and friends focused times - Princess's prom was much more low key and required nothing from me thankfully. Your party looked fun tho'!

Ruth said...

What a wonderful set of images to showcase your word!

Donna said...

It certainly was a busy month for you! I think it's so important sometime to focus on family because the time really does fly by. Hope you find some creative time in July!
