It's been a long few weeks and this blog has been the last thing on my mind. It's been nice since I haven't cared if I get behind because there will be a time when I can sit down and write to my babies. Our entire summer was laid back with lazy days mixed with busy days at the pool! We got to spend time with the people that matter most to us and I feel like it was always fun for my kiddos.
My mom and dad are selling their place and needed to get rid of lots of stuff. Mark and I feel pretty confident we are done having babies, so we decided to sell it all! Along with a friend and sister-in-law, we had a multi-family garage sale! I have to say it will be the last time I do that again.
It was a lot of work and people can be hard to deal with:)
The kids loved it. They greeted people and Papa went to get the fixings for a lemonade stand. We live in the country, so they won't be having any stands near the road. We handed a lot of quarters out to everyone to have them buy-they also drank most of it themselves!
Then that Monday it was back to work for me. It always comes at a time that I am ready. I love the time we have together, but it is hard work! Give me a few months and I will long for our days together. The lucky part is I can do it again next summer.
These three LOVE their time with Meme so the transition back is easy. They had two weeks with her before Avery and Mack go back to school. Lincoln is going to have alone time with Baby Kalen!
Since being back at work I tend to do more with them in the evening. We have been to the pool, played outside, and this day started a Shoe store! Or a Shoe Grocery Store!
Mack is getting pretty good at writing his name. I want it to stay like this forever!
This is Avery's family portrait. I'm going to love what she does this last year in preschool-she is already a writer, but want to know more about "making words". I think she will be amazing by the time she gets to kindergarten (since she misses the cut off date by 20 days). She will be 6 entering school.
In the morning, when Baby Kalen comes, they have so much love to give him!
Some other cuteness that happened...
Daddy brought the kids to meet me at a happy hour. I loved this picture!
Lincoln was fired up for the fire truck party we planned for Mack.
and the boys had a lot of snuggles to give mommy on morning!
The next few post will describe why the weeks have been extra busy...besides going back to work!
