Whether you’re throwing end-of-the-year homeschool parties, hitting the pool, or pressing through the summer on schedule, set aside some quality time to enjoy a few fun days.
June happens to be one of the lighter months without many holidays, so carve out some memory making opportunities! Turn on the sprinklers, make homemade ice-cream, picnic outside, watch the sun set, and catch some fireflies!

June 21 – Father’s Day (3rd Sunday)
Nothing says “Happy Father’s Day” in our home quite like barbecue brisket. The dad in your home might not be a fan of brisket, so get with your kids and plan some of dad’s favorite meals. Forget the tie and have fun cooking together for the special dad in your home. Don’t forget to call a father-in-law or another special dad who made an impact on your life!
