It’s time to go back to school! I’m sitting here wondering where the summer went, it seems like it just started and it’s already mid-September. Braden is in 2nd Grade and Kenz is in Pre-K this year. It’s kind of bittersweet – this is our last “first day” at the school the kids have been at since they were infants. Next year they’ll both be in elementary school.
I started to title this post “Time is a Jerk”, but decided maybe that wasn’t the best idea. It’s true though, even moreso the older I get. I swear having kids has made time fly by at warp speed.
Do you ever have those days where you just wonder if you’re invisible? I don’t know what was going on yesterday, but I seriously felt like I was. To explain, I need to rewind a bit though.. to this..
Or at least, that’s how it feels. A killer sinus infection, followed by a lovely allergic reaction, has had me on my butt for the last few days. I’ve also been off work since December 23rd, so I think this is the first time I’ve actually turned on my computer since then. I feel like our Christmas break flew by so fast. When it started, I was so excited for two weeks of just hanging out with my family and friends without a ton of obligations, but like usual, we found things to keep us busy and then I got sick.. and here we are. I’m going to try to keep it short today and just share a few pictures of what we were up to before Christmas.
I hope y’all had a great Halloween weekend! Friday night was busy, as expected, but the rest of our weekend was very relaxing — definitely a welcome change from our normal weekends where we’re running all over the place!
First, I wanted to say thank you so much for all of the well-wishes for Mackenzie. After a week and a half at home with me, she is finally fever-free and back at school today! They moved her up to a new class while she was out with several of her older friends, so while she didn’t exactly want me to leave, she was excited to see them!
Hello, hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Hey strangers! It’s been a while.
One thing I love about the school that Mackenzie goes to (and Braden for the summer) is all of the fun activities they plan for the kiddos. Each week, they do a different theme and occasionally ask the kids to dress up to match the theme. My favorite one, until recently, was Braden’s mosquito costume.
It’s time to say so long, Kindergarten! First grade, here comes Braden!
