Jen had a very productive June working with many great clients and, also, her children as they push through the last month of school before July break.  She was able to make a quick trip to Wrightsville Beach for Father’s Day with her husband and children.  They spent the day at the beach and had some great seafood.  She is looking forward to more of this beautiful weather that North Carolina has to offer in July.

Jason had a great June! He celebrated his wife’s birthday with a bunch of friends by cruising on the Trolley Pub through downtown Raleigh, followed up with a pool party – it was a great time! He started playing in his Summer Heat soccer league, as well as continued teaching his summer semester. He has a few trips planned for the summer, so he’s excited about that as well!

Sharon has really been enjoying the summer! In early June, her family celebrated Ryan’s high school graduation. Her family came into town for the event and they had a fun celebration!! Sam has been busy with Carolina Gold Band each weekend and attending summer school classes at Wake Tech. Sharon also spent a wonderful Memorial Day weekend at the North Carolina coast and she is looking forward to a trip to Denver, Colorado, in July.

The big June event in Erika’s family was Marlayna graduating from Franklin Academy! Four down, one to go (Macy, next year). Jesse finally got out of the barracks in Hawaii and into a house with two of his Navy buddies. No one really ever felt sorry for him having to live in the barracks though…it’s Hawaii! Perry had his first live music performance and, although it was a small venue, he had a good time and enjoyed the experience.

Hunter had a great June. His brother recently graduated from high school, and will be attending NC State University in the fall where he will be playing football. He also was able to make a trip to Charleston with friends, and had an incredible time checking out the history and museums in the city!
