Life With June

Learning | Polite requests get you what you want more than yelling does.  To make pancakes all by herself.  How to roller skate at Hailey's birthday party.

Creating | Lots of drawings of ladders.  Sweet Mother's Day gifts.  Birthday cards - it's the season in June's family!

Loving | Aunt Heidi's baby kitties.  Seeing Jonathon.  Going to visit Soumia and her friends.  Her cousins.  Swimming.

Reading | How I Was Adopted.  Miss Rumphius.  Comic books. 

Playing |  At the park.  Riding her bike. 

Watching |  YouTube videos of people unwrapping Easter eggs.  Dolphin Tale II.

Practicing |  Swimming!  June graduated from preschool level 3 to level 4 this month.  She can now jump in the pool and swim the crawl stroke to her teacher.

Spokane or Bust

While Teriann headed to Oklahoma for work, June and I headed east to visit Carlos and Angie and Guthrie in Spokane.  It was a great weekend get-away, though I agree with June's assessment, "next time lets sleep over for three nights!"

Boulder River Falls

We joined the Hintons for another hike, this time to Boulder River Falls.  

The girls all had their boots on and enjoyed slogging through the mud and puddles.  And they pushed through the last leg of the hike belting out some of their favorite songs, including "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow! You're only a day away!"
