Things have sure been slow over here on the blog, in six years, I think this is the least I have posted in a single month. There are a lot of reasons behind that so I thought it would be a good time to do a little life lately post & share a bit about what we are up to. Harper has been in school for a little over two weeks, which also means our babysitters are back to school and I have the little ones (who are lost without their big sis!) most days by myself. I have never been a good multi-tasker, so I am usually focused on the kids or focused on work, and this month, it has been the kids. It has been dentist appointments, well visits, orientations and open houses, registration for dance and gymnastics, and going to the pool almost every night after dinner while we still can.
Although we have been busy, it’s’ been a really sweet season for us over here. Quiet mornings with Harper having breakfast & getting her ready for school have really made me reflect on the fact that I have a big kid & time is just passing by so quickly. I know this is such a crucial transition for her & I feel so grateful that I am able to make lots of extra time for her. In the early afternoons when Claire is napping, I get lots of one on one time with Eloise, which is so rare since she is the middle child and almost always has a sister around, we love this time together! We definitely took for granted the laziness of summer & how sweet it is to all be together, being back on a schedule and only having all three girls home together in the evenings is definitely a huge change of pace for us. The little ones start two & three year old preschool in just a few days, which means a few hours home with no kids for the first time ever (whaaaat!) and more time for the blog!
I am ready for cool weather, ready for the girls to get to be outside in the afternoons again & for our morning walks to the coffee shop. I miss having dinner & breakfast on the back deck and can’t wait to have our windows open all day long. We have so much exciting stuff in store for this Fall (Summer always leaves me feeling uninspired, another reason for the lack of posts) and I just can’t wait for this season more than ever!
As always, thanks so much for reading, I am so thankful for all of you!! Wishing you all a happy week ahead!! XO
