Oh it's September already?! Whoa Nelly. The kids and I have had 12 whole weeks of summer fun, and I think we're all ready for school to resume! The other day, we took Henry to his kinder orientation at his new school, and he is beside himself with excitement. And we are equally excited to know that he has the teacher we requested (Alison's old teacher!). Alison is eager for 2nd grade, and Kate is growing up way too fast. Every day she has a new word or saying, and she's definitely going through her language "explosion!" For sure.
Oh, and we bought her a big girl bed (after several rounds of her climbing out and about). She's super proud to have her own bed, and if you're a mama or papa of a little one, you know that graduating to a big kid bed is exciting stuff. And I'm sure you also know that once the confines of a crib are gone, the trick is to get the child to actually stay in the bed. Well, Kate? She's the only one of our kidlets who has decided that staying in bed is A-OK. So a big WHEW on that one! Here's a peek at her pretending to sleep (what a ham).
Summer has been hopping busy for the shop, and it's felt like Christmas around here. I've also been doing a lot of investigation, and hopefully soon I'll have some new goodies in store for you. And you, and you, and you!
Let's see what else? Um, not much! Just enjoying the last bits of summer before heading back to the routines and rhythms of fall. Hope you enjoy your last days too.
