It’s June! We wouldn’t have known it at the beginning of the month with the heat on in the house and my boots and scarves still out. We began June, cold and windy. The weather started perking up for a few days before we left for the states so the kids could get outside and play. It’s been a funny month, gearing up for our summer trip and getting everything done for B starting school before we left as we return the week before school starts. I have had school visits, teacher meetings and uniforms arriving. It really was a busy month in terms of packing and preparing for school when we return.
We landed in sunny USA, home at last. After hugging my parents for so long we finally got in the car to make the long journey up the mountain to home. It’s the best feeling in the world to be home surrounded by my family and there is so much for the kids to do everyday as the weather is almost always guaranteed. We ended June with a huge celebration for MM turning two years old right along side my best friend’s daughter having been born on the same day. It was just a small family affair but it felt like a really big milestone turning two. The kids seem to have been growing up a lot lately and getting, oh, so tall too. We have a tradition on each kids’ birthday to measure them on my parents door frame and they have shot up this year from last. I love that we spend both of their birthdays here in the states each year. B’s is up next in August so from now until then I am strutting around with a two year old and a three year old.

June’s family captures are special as for the next two months Mr P won’t be with us in our photo captures but he will be there in spirit. So don’t think I got rid of him just yet, in July and August because he isn’t in them. We will miss him so very much but it’s our last big summer in the states before we are restricted to term times. I am so very grateful for this time to bond with my side of the family and my friends here. I am so grateful that we have FaceTime so the kids still get to see Daddy every night before bed. Just like last year I know it will fly by and soon we will be back in the UK together again. We are making the most of Daddy’s last week here, this week.
