Well hello there....it's been a few weeks (almost 2 months) since I blogged. Glad this blog is mostly for myself!! Ha! Let's just jump right into August!
Grocery shopping in all our glory...
I found some cute baskets/boxes on major sale at Kroger during our trip. I decided to hang them on little man's wall.
Later that week I was heading over to my parent's house to pick up my kiddos and people kept looking at me while I was driving. FINALLY a woman told me to roll down my window and she pointed to my tire. I thought I had ANOTHER FLAT TIRE! Grrr. Nope. Yeah....that is a drop cloth. It was on the floor of our garage (from painting projects). When I had backed out it somehow latched onto my tire. I called my wonderful dad to come help, but I was able to FINALLY get it to rip and release! I was pretty embarrassed, then proud for getting it off. 😂
That weekend I worked more on B's room. I seem to always be tweaking it here and there. Here are a few shots of her room!
I completed this project...and I LOVE it so much! It sits above her desk...I want her to always read this and believe it!
That Saturday we headed out to my uncle's house for a mini family reunion. They have an amazing pool and cook a delicious meal!! We ALL had such a great time! Can't wait to do it again!!
Tuesday, the 8th, was a camp for incoming 6th graders. So while Finn was off exploring the school, the littles and I listened to the principal and counselors. While we waited they found a flag that represents some of our good friends...so we had to take a pic and send it to them. OH...IO.
Later that week, the 12th, was my dad's birthday....and this cake...was INCREDIBLE!! Moist, chocolatey, delicious. (My MIL, Linda, had a birthday the following day and we took her to lunch, but I didn't get a single picture!!😠 mad at myself!)
The following week it was time for fresh school haircuts. It gets expensive when you have 3 at one time. But they are worth it.... 😊
Snap chat fun with this girl happenned a lot!
Finally it was time for Meet the Teacher.
Owen was thrilled to have the same teacher from last year...Mrs. Anderson.
B was a lot more nervous. She had heard some "things" about her teacher and she was worried. But I think once she met her and saw her room, she decided it would be okay!
The next day Aidan and I made a SAMS run with Gma...I mean...how tall is he? Ridiculous.
That Saturday the 19th, was jam packed with football stuff. First a scrimmage at 8am. Then a BBQ luncheon, then card selling for a fundraiser, then we took a nap! It was an exhausting day, but fun too.
My mom gave me this embroidered picture that was given to her when I was born. It was in a (old) gold frame...which I know is popular right now...but I decided to switch it to this wooden frame and add it to her gallery wall. I love it and hope she can one day pass it to her daughter!
And just like that it was time for the first day of school pics...here are two. I will do another post just for this day though! Nice face Owen.
Day 2 this big boy rode his bike to school. And I was a nervous wreck. But he made it and all was good!!
I started putting out some fall decorations that weekend. This might be my favorite. I keep telling myself to change the picture, but I just can't do it. I love putting this frame out...it gives me all the feels!!😍
The week of the 28th I started inservice at both jobs. This awesome girl here, Ashley V, and I had Open House. She and I are teaching the 2's together at HighRidge Kids School (We also get to work together at our other preschool...just in different classrooms). This night we got a quick glimpse at the CRAZY that was going to be coming our way a few weeks later! 😂😝😱
That Wednesday I peeked in on the girls who were taking CPR....I might have taken this picture of their enthralled faces. Then I might have piddled a little laughing at this picture later!!!
The following week I started back teaching at Grace Place!! It was stressful and loud but good! I have a wonderful co-teacher- Jennifer (above picture on the far left) and an amazing director- Laurie (above picture on the far right)!!
Thursday night we went to Aidan's football game. I love watching him play. So proud of him!!
That month was so full, so fast and so exhausting. 😌
