June was a fun month back in NC for us. We left Aventis at Nassau Yacht Haven Marina in Nassau, Bahamas to spend time in NC.
Makenzie gave us a beautiful way to remember Aventis while away:
Makenzie moved into her studio apartment with her cat Gracie.
Ella got “Capped” by her friend Riley. This is a ceremony where seniors have a friend help them get there cap and gown on; it is the first time they are seen in public with it on.
Shannon helped Kent and Kathy Meredith move their catamaran, Wind Ensemble, up to the Chesapeake for Hurricane season.
He made it back to Blowing Rock just in time to see Ella graduate on June 14th at 5:30pm at the Holmes Convocation Center in Boone, NC. She completed high school in three years with honors.
Addie’s last days at Blowing Rock School included a pool party with classmates and teachers.
We got to celebrate Father’s Day with all three girls in Blowing Rock.
Ella turned 17!!
For her birthday, Ella wanted a Tattoo, so off to Virginia we went since she was under 18 (NC doesn’t allow that). Ella got a puzzle piece in honor of her sister, Addie. Makenzie has the same tattoo on her arm also.
Because she is so loving and supportive, Makenzie got a tattoo also. Her tattoo is of the year our family was established.
We spent a day in Black Mountain, NC at a Brewery and Cidery with friends. Addie got fairy hair.
Back home, Addie played games with some old friends and dogs…
Addie had a great week at Pizza Camp with her friend Brendan.
And of course, we spent time walking the dogs and enjoying those cool summer days in Boone…
