So here are some of my favorites from this week. Per the norm I am linked up with the lovely Katie and the cute Christina!
1. Fall House Projects
|Totally stoked to start planting! Hello fall vegetables and flowers!|
I just said fall - oh my. Well this week the husbandito has been working on our yard and a few projects. I may have wanted a garden in March/April and he may have not had the chance to ge around to building my beds but he sure did make up for it this week. I now have three garden beds right at my chicken coop he built this summer.
|Why am I thinking about red wine right now?|
He also put in his fire pit. I think this will be a very welcome addition for the weekends when the air is cool and crisp as those apples that will be celebrated in Wilkesboro, NC in October.
2. Pool Time
|Swimming under the water. I know it looks odd.|
We had two great pool days this week. The weather started off relatively cool for NC in August so I was quite chilled when I got in! The kids though - they don't feel the difference! They both had a blast swimming and splashing.
3. Birthday Boy
|Nana took him out for Sweet Frogs!|
|Four? No way! He loved this sticker face book!|
My son turned four this week! We enjoyed cake for breakfast and a fun day celebrating our favorite little boy. He just feels my heart with such joy! He is so full of energy and happiness. All birthday morning he kept thanking me for his little cake and presents.
4. Girl's Day
|All grown up - well she thinks so! I'm starting to see it too.|
My daughter and I spent Thursday together - no boys! We went to Kohl's where she picked out new sneakers for school. A Sam's trip helped us get our birthday party/back to school/pantry restocked. We had some Chicfila for lunch. Then Lizz gave her a new look (goodbye five inches of hair) for school. After all that we had a nice trip to the library where she stocked up on a series she loves and I checked out Eleanor & Park and another book that I cannot wait to read! (Sorry, I forgot the title.)
5. Open House
|This is a big year. Third grade is a huge transitional grade and we're ready for it! I think I am?|
I guess it is official that now we have a straight up third grader in our home. WOW! I was told once my kids hit elementary school the years would fly by and that was no lie. I remember her kindergarten open house like it was yesterday and now we're starting third grade? This year will rock out - I'm loving her teacher and I'm pumped at how excited my child remains about school.
