Jovie in June

our june has been pretty jam-packed.  we have had something every week.  so once we came home from florida, it’s been non-stop.  first there were swim lessons.  and WOW.

0034we were there for the first 2 weeks.  she got to be pretty good at some of the swimming strokes.  (especially the breast stroke!) and she likes to have floating contests with me now.  the first time coach whitney even asked her to tread water, she did it for over a minute!  ???? wow.

sadly, we had to say goodbye to not one, not two, but THREE sets of friends this summer.

her buddy miles (and madelyn… and family) moved when we were in florida.  then christina stopped nannying courtney & madelyn on the same day that ethan moved away.      sad sad stuff!  (of course, i miss Liz, Sarah & Christina tons)

so we had a few pool time parties to have our last hurrahs there.  no good pix came of it, though.  but the water day pix were part of that before miles (and family) left.

and of course, june is not complete without giving The Mr. his affection.

both his birthday & father’s day happened a week apart so we got to spend a lot of fun time out at the pool & hanging out.

happy birthday

happy father's day

happy father’s day

in the middle of all this, The Mr. traveled to tokyo for work.  i figured that would be as good a time as any to introduce jovie to the hibachi style of eating.  i’ve cooked fried rice, shrimp & chicken at home a few times before…. but i wanted to leave it to the professionals this time:

0019it was good, but unfortunately, the chef wasn’t as fun as he coulda been.  and i told him it was her first time.  but she enjoyed it nonetheless.

meanwhile, we’ve had lots of “water wednesdays” with our friends, a few instances of mini-school with me, and lots of weekend pool time with dad.

last week, she went to vacation bible school (a big deal down here in the south!) for the first time.  and though she had a good time, i will admit her behavior was the least fun last week than it has been in a month!  not sure what that was all about.

she will finish up june going to dance camp and i’m hoping this last week will be a much better week for us all!  i shudder to think that june is almost over.  which means…….. JULY.  oh man.  i’m not ready!
