June was a crazy busy month for our family. This month included Audrey being admitted into the hospital, dance performances at libraries and nursing homes all over the county for the girls, and a week-long beach visit with family. Although June began a bit bumpy it ended up being a super fun and busy month. This post follows our June 2016 in photos…the good, the not so good, and the awesome!
Audrey earned her mermaid tail this summer. She could be found in our pool at any given time of the day, unless we were at the beach. Audrey was so proud that she was finally able to swim to the drain at the bottom of the pool. After so many hours spent in the water she developed an ear infection. I treated it naturally with garlic mullein ear oil and colloidal silver but it was the most persistent ear infection I have ever witnessed. Before dinner on evening I noticed a hot redness behind her ear, I decided that I would take her to the doctor in the morning. After a restless night of sleep I took Audrey to the doctor. She was examined and then we were promptly sent to the hospital where she was admitted.
After several rounds of IV antibiotics she was feeling better and was discharged. Her hospital stay was one night although they wanted her to stay two. We were relieved to head home and work on healing her ear and her gut.
Summer Dance Performances
Both girls take ballet classes and they were thrilled to be a part of a circus themed performance. There performed several shows at library’s and retirement homes around the county. Animals were involved in the show making it even more fun!

Audrey had to wear a floatie and an ear plug because we were instructed to keep her out of the water. We did the best we could…

Who knew that an air mattress on the ocean would be so much fun?

Butterfly garden fun
A local house opens her backyard once a year for the community to come see her amazing backyard butterfly friendly habitat. The girls enjoyed the butterflies, friends, snacks, and face painting.
