As we get ready to kick off the 2016-2017 school year I wanted to give you a glimpse into my summer. Some of the plans that I had didn’t happen because the 8 weeks of summer flew by so quick. Between my activities and the boys activities two months just wasn’t enough time. I hope to still accomplish some of our plans before winter.
My oldest son will start his senior year of high school. I’m both excited and scared. This milestone really hit me when he took his senior pictures. Ironically he took his picture at the same place that I took mine.
This was also his last summer conference with Bridge Builders. He started Bridge Builders as a rising 9th grader. To say that we love and have enjoyed the Bridge Builder experience is an understatement. This week gave us a preview of what will happen when he leaves for college. http://www.bridgesusa.org
After Robert’s week away from home my youngest spent the next week at Honors Camp at the University of Memphis. He had the chance to interact with students and teachers from around the city. One of the things he liked most was seeing the different and innovative teaching styles of other teachers. http://www.scsk12.org
The boys had the month of June but July belonged to momma. I was able to attend the 67th Boule’ of my beloved Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. in Atlanta. This was such an amazing experience. Can you imagine 22,000 beautiful women in all their pink & green glory? Well I didn’t have to imagine it, I lived it. http://www.aka1908.com
After Boule’ I celebrated birthday 49. I had a nice quiet birthday at home but watch out for the big 5-0. There will be nothing quiet about it. I’m thinking Vegas baby!!
Summertime at work was busy too. I had 5 of the world’s best interns. They came ready to slay and slay they did. I will miss them when they leave me but Memphis is so lucky to have them. They represented University of Memphis, LeMoyne-Owen College & Rhodes College. http://www.astepaheadfoundation.org
I am so ready for Fall, my favorite season, and hopefully some cooler temps in the Mtown.
How was your Summer 2016?
