back to school

It’s so hard to believe that kids are starting back to school already.  Am I the only one that thinks this summer was the quickest one yet?  It could be because we’ve had so much going on but I feel like we barely spent any time at the pool (which to me = summer).

Anywho, both of the girls are starting school this year and are going to a new preschool – one that is right down the street!  Since it’s new to us, I sat down with Bea’s teachers this week to talk through her background and health challenges.  I was FLOORED by the responsiveness of the team and their willingness to meet with me before Parent Orientation so that we could all get on the same page on insuring Bea has a healthy year.  It made me feel comforted that they were so invested in her success and solidified my decision to send her there.

Bea’s first day is the first week of September and Poppy will be following her there after her 2nd birthday in October.  We were up in the air on whether to send Poppy so young but she is counting to ten and saying her ABCs sooooo we felt like she was ready 🙂

SO – now that the girls are getting ready to start school, I did a little e-commerce shopping to get their wardrobe “school ready”.  Here are some things I picked up for the girls at Boden!

Hi!

I wanted to quickly share a recent interview I did with Jeff Thomas from Q102.  Have you ever heard about his Person of Interest podcast?  Well, I was asked to be this week’s POI and I couldn’t be more excited!

Check out the podcast HERE 🙂

update

Hi!

I am so sorry it has taken me forever to post something.  It has been a whirlwind.

As you know, Jordan and I started some construction on a house we purchased in May.  While our project was taking place, we sold our house and began renting it back from the people who purchased it.

Last week, we officially made the move into the new house and while construction wasn’t completely finished – it was finished enough for us to move in.

And WOW!  I’ve had smaller moved 2 times before (where movers weren’t required) so this was my first real big move.  I feel like I have been living in chaos for a month – packing up my old house over a couple of weeks, not being able to find anything I need, making the transition to the new house, begin the unpacking process, still not able to find anything I need….etc.

I am definitely still unpacking and organizing and just getting settled but I already feel 1,000 times better than I did last week.  There are still projects that are getting completed around the house (kitchen backsplash, laundry room floor, painting the mud room) but when all of that is complete – then I will feel TRULY settled.

SO – I apologize for the lack of blog content – things have been nutty.  Make sure to follow along on my instagram story (@hillarykweidner) for more day-to-day updates and content and I PROMISE to be back next week with more posts!
