Here’s a little life lately for your Thursday…I don’t know about you…but I could really get used to these four day weeks :).
Ashby had a check-up at our pediatrician’s office and did such a great job!
Side note, as you can see, our pediatrician has flowers, animals and whatnot painted on the walls. I pointed to a raccoon and asked Ashby “what’s this?” hoping she would say something close to a raccoon…and she said, “the wall”. That funny kid :).
Ahhhh! I’m such a big girl!
Puzzles, puzzles, puzzles…we do a lot of puzzles!
I took Bowen and Ashby to the park while the big girls were at dance and the big boys were at baseball practice. At one point, Bowen said, “Miss Shay, I love you” and then I melted into a puddle.
On Fridays, Erika and I have been volunteering at the kids’ school and then taking the two little kids on a walk and to the park. These two are loving our new Friday routine! (And so am I!!!)
After school, I surprised the big kids with a trip to Starbucks. We chatted about their day and enjoyed a little treat. Love these kiddos!
Chillin’ with my big girl!
Andrew and Smith spent the day doing boy stuff on Sunday after church, so I spent the day with the girls. We have a Starbucks really close to our house, so we enjoyed a little outing to get yet another treat (listen…I am fully aware of my Starbucks addiction), and then sat out by this lake with our cake pops and enjoyed the late afternoon.
Reading a cute little book and watching my very favorite movie…all while in bed. It was the perfect evening.
Labor Day lunch with my three sweet kids (and that cute hubby of mine who was getting our food at the time). We had such a nice day together!
We finished off our day swimming with the Slaughters! What a wonderful end to such a fantastic summer!
Popsicles on the driveway :).
On Tuesday, Ashby started her first day of pre-school :). You guys, she was SO EXCITED!! She’ll be doing the same two day a week program my big kids did and her first day was a huge success!
She was so pumped that she insisted on carrying all of her stuff to my car herself. Backpack, check. Lunchbox, check. Nap mat, check. Happy girl, check!!
After I dropped her off at school, I somehow found myself kid-free and at Williams-Sonoma with Starbucks in hand. I’m not sure how that happened…but it was glorious :).
And thanks to all of you for the drink suggestions! My new favorite is Pike or Blonde with one pump of pumpkin spice and just a splash of half and half. Thank you coffee lovers for the tip!
Speaking of Starbucks, on Tuesday night, we had our annual scarf exchange. We couldn’t remember if this was the fourth or fifth year of this tradition…but it’s always one of our favorites. We all meet at Starbucks with wrapped scarves (I wrapped mine in foil this year) and then draw numbers and pick/keep/trade/steal. It’s such a fun tradition and a night we laugh about all year long. Plus, we all walk away with a super cute new scarf. If you aren’t into scarves, your friends could do an earring exchange, necklace exchange, book exchange, nail polish exchange…go nuts :).
That’s life lately.
Tomorrow, a little giveaway :).
