What a busy month!
 I'm going to do a quick recap with pics from my phone.

Brady and his good friend Luke at the 6th grade picnic.

Brady and his other good friend Olivia.
Our two elementary schools got the 6th graders together for a picnic before they
head off to middle school in the fall.

Our last day walking into school/work together.  The last couple of weeks of school were hard
for me leading up to this day.  I will sure miss our car ride to and from school together everyday and
having him near me...and being able to keep an eye on him. ;)

A co-worker captured this moment.  I didn't know Brady put his arm
around me until I saw this picture.  :)

(And yes, he passed me in height a couple of months ago and has reminded
me of it everyday since!)

The morning of 6th grade graduation.

Love this kid.

Such a good group of kids....I'm going to miss seeing them everyday next year.

After graduation some of the kids and parents went to Friendly's for lunch.

Brady was in a really big tennis tournament.

I got a new iphone!  (kind of had to....mine died)

Washing the neighbor's car.

That same neighbor got two new chickens!

Eric and I did our annual Parade of Homes date!

We went to Ocean City, Maryland

We had perfect beach weather (HOT) all week!

I think we ended up spending more time at the pool than at the beach.

Brady's having lemonade...and Eric is talking to him about tips.

I was at the beach too. :)

Brady and I went to visit family in Ohio for a few days.  My mom's husband and my sister's
dad passed away (after a long illness) while we were on vacation.  Brady and I, and my sisters and 
our aunt spent one day working on my mom's yard, trimming shrubs, pulling weeds and planting flowers. I wish I had taken a picture afterwards.

Brady and I stayed at my Aunt Bonnie's mom's house was full.
  My mom and Aunt grew up in this house and after my grandparents were gone, my aunt purchased it.  I think she has owned it now close to 36 years and has lived here almost all of her life.  This house is so familiar to me and brings back so many memories every time I step inside.  My aunt has it fixed up so cute and takes such pride in her home...I love it.

We brought Grandma back to Pennsylvania with us and tried to keep her busy.
We played lots of Scrabble and Dominoes, went for ice cream, had a cookout, went
to a big thrift store, watched Brady play tennis, went to bingo, out to dinner and just visited.
It was nice having her here...but she was anxious to get back home and back to work.

I can't believe it's the middle of July already!  

I hope you're enjoying your summer!

What a great catch-up post! I can't believe how big Brady is! And so handsome! I can see it's been a good summer so far. I sure wish you'd stop by and see us when you're in Ohio! It's only 20mi from Ashland! Just drop me a line and I'll give you our address. Have a good rest of this summer and I hope you'll post more pics too!
