I haven't put up a weekly wrap-up in a few weeks. Life has been busy and restful at the same time. Here are the highlights from June. Anne danced in the Hola Festival in our city. It was a big crowd. Dancing outside on an open stage in the middle of a festival is a new experience that she can add to her list of accomplishments.

While Dean has been busy every day, Anne, Tim and I have been busy doing some long neglected chores. We cleaned all the windows in the house (inside and out), washed curtains, sorted every single book in the house, did lots of gardening and got rid of about 200 items. We also bought a riding mower with our tax refund, and the kids have been taking turns learning how to drive it. Tim thought it was a bit fast, but I think he enjoyed his very first driving experience.
Anne spent much of the last month exploring thrift shops and buying clothes to modify. She has been sewing, tie dying, and generally having so much fun creating new styles. She spent her entire childhood only wearing dresses and then gave them up completely about four years ago. She is getting back into them now. It is fun to see her style emerging.
