Welcome to One Sentence A Day for June. This month started off so badly. On June 2, after weeks of being in limbo, we found out our kids were not going to be able to return to in person learning this year. This was really hard and sad for our whole family :( However, after that, the month got much better.
1 - Tuesday -- This was a hard day as we awaited news of whether or not schools would re-open and everyone was mad. (More sentences: Really, we're mad at Covid and the government but take it out on each other. I talked with a couple of friends today who are mad and frustrated too so it's not just us.)
2 - Wednesday -- Sadly, we found out for sure that school would be online for the rest of the year :(
3 - Thursday -- I got a massage for the first time since March (whooo hoooo!!!) and Dave ended the evening with a foot injury (boooooo).
4 - Friday -- I worked for a few hours, Rachel and I did the grocery trip to end all grocery trips, and we celebrated our neighbour's first birthday at the cutest party!
5 - Saturday -- We enjoyed the best beach day!!!
6 - Sunday -- This was not the most fun post-beach day but we did enjoy a few hours with our best friends in the afternoon.
And I tried the mustard and watermelon trend and thought it was "not bad."
7 - Monday -- We went on a family bike ride to get a red onion and it was chaos, and we enjoyed an evening visit with neighbours who were hanging out on the street.
8 - Tuesday -- I learned how to use an electric air pump to inflate soccer balls, basketballs, and playground balls. (Second sentence: My job is sooooo fun!)
9 - Wednesday -- I found out my current school job is ending as of next week which I'm okay with because it gives me a couple of weeks at home to get things done while the kids are still "in school." (read: "doing online learning at home.")
10 - Thursday -- It was a really busy day at work and then I weeded and planted the front bed (finally!).
11 - Friday -- I had Friday afternoon off so Dave and I cleaned the living room and our bedroom, we walked to the library, and we enjoyed the first swim of the year at the pool!!!
12 - Saturday -- This was an exhausting day with lots of walking, but Rachel and I did enjoy a few hours of hiking with her best friend and her mom.
13 - Sunday -- This was another full day but we fit in a swim and Dave and the kids played tennis!
14 - Monday -- Sam had his first baseball practice of the season and I LOVED watching him getting to do his thing again.
15 - Tuesday -- It was a full day of work, an evening meeting, and our first CSA pickup of the season!!!
16 - Wednesday -- I ran some errands, tried a new recipe for supper (meatball subs) and had an evening walk with Rachel where we ran some more errands and took some fun pictures :)
17 - Thursday -- HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY RACHEL!!!
18 - Friday -- It was a full day of tea with my best friend, a small birthday party for Rachel, and my second vaccine!!!
19 - Saturday -- We participated in an Amazing Race through our library and our uptown business association and then I crashed with vaccine side effects for the rest of the day.
20 - Sunday -- We had one very grumpy family member and the key to the day was "survive until bedtime."
21 - Monday -- I enjoyed a rainy day at home to catch up on blogging (both reading blogs and writing posts) and then I enjoyed watching Sam's ball practice in the evening.
22 - Tuesday -- I got called in for a job at another school the previous night so I walked to work and back, walked to pick up our CSA, processed our CSA, and then I was done for the day. (More sentences: At 8:30 that night it turned into a "rest of the week" job.)
23 - Wednesday -- I worked, Rachel and Sam had their last day of synchronous learning for the school year, Rachel and I went on a long errand walk, and I ended the day with Blog Friends' Book Club!
24 - Thursday -- Sam graduated from Grade 6 this day. (Second sentence: This was his last year of elementary school. Next year he's off to middle school for two years. Yikes.)
25 - Friday -- It was (possibly) my last day of work for the school year and I got a mug from the school I was working at :) (Second sentence: Spoiler alert: It was not my last day of work for the school year!)
26 - Saturday -- It was a very rainy day and I had a headache and so slept until past noon.
27 - Sunday -- Today was a bit of a runaround day but it ended with unexpectedly getting a second vaccine appointment for Sam!!!
28 - Monday -- I was back at the school this day and then exhausted this evening due to heat and the end of the school year.
29 - Tuesday -- It was a full day of work and I finished off my "morning" coffee at 3:15pm :) (Second sentence: Also, it was my and Dave's 13th anniversary but we decided to postpone marking it until next week due to craziness.)
The kids woke up at 7:15 so we could kick off our summer with our "strawberries and ice cream" breakfast tradition before I had to go to work. Now that's dedication (from the kids!).
30 - Wednesday -- It was finally my last day of work before summer vacation and I ended the evening reading at the baseball diamond.
