After finishing my master’s degree…
….it was nice to have a relaxing summer to refuel. I found plenty of fun and nerdy ways to fill my time.
I spent a week on Lake Michigan with my family. Hiking, soaking in the scenery, playing games in the cabin on rainy days, roasting marshmallows over the campfire…it was wonderful.
I spent time digging in the dirt and trying to grow things. I love my herbs, zinnias, and cherry tomatoes!
I transferred all our home videos from VHS tapes to DVDs. This required getting in touch with my inner 90’s child and researching the workings of VHS tapes to save the corrupted 95-97 tape. I felt pretty accomplished.
I made a tea mug rack (with help from my grandpa) out of reclaimed wood from our old swing set. Pinterest win!
My grandpa also helped me transform my $2 garage sale finds into some beautiful chairs. I now have a greater appreciation for Windsor chairs and milk paint thanks to him.
Of course it’s not summer without some summer reading!
I also spent quite a bit of time getting ready for my new job as a school SLP! I have my resource teachers to thank for creating such a cute, organized room.
Add a trip to the zoo, hanging out with friends, lots of bike rides, Shakespeare in the park, a sister road trip to visit friends in KC, and some other summer activities and you have the perfect summer!
