Last week was my last week of work for an entire month. I go back for the 2017-2018 school year on July 31st. It will be my 14th year of being a speech language pathologist. I ended up having so many kids this summer for extended school year that I had to add two extra days of work because I just couldn't gt everything done in two days a week. So I ended up working Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last week.
I didn't work on Monday the 26th though. And I could not tell you a single thing that happened that day. Well, except that we got Spencer's swim team pictures in the mail. And I only know that because I took pictures of the pictures that day.
I did work on Tuesday the 27th. It was a busy day at work and then I did an adorable photo shoot with Ginger that night.
She was watching Michael make lunches and was hoping for a tasty morsel.
Wednesday morning the 28th was horribly stressful, as I had to get Elliott to day care by 7:00 am and me to work by 7:40 am so that I didn't miss the bus to go on a field trip. I usually drop Elliott off at 7:40. It was also his last day of daycare ever, so there was the added element of that. Thankfully Spencer went to a friend's house for the day and they picked him up, otherwise I never would have made it in time.
The field trip was to the new OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale. We got a grant that paid for something like 150 people to go. It's $25 per kid and $35 per adult. Gulp!
We had a great day. I was with two girls from my speech therapy caseload and we really did have fun together.

Spencer had a friend spend the night on Wednesday night. This was Spencer waiting for Julian to arrive. I told Spencer I would delete this picture and never, ever show it to anyone ever.
Up next: the rest of the week and then 4th of July festivities.
