peek into my week

Hi!

So, I’m still feeling pretty overwhelmed with getting settled in at the new house and I can’t even believe it but Bea starts preschool next week – AH!  Here is a little highlight from this past week…

[We had a great day at the pool last week and it was EMPTY because so many kids started back at school.  It was the first time ever where I actually felt like I could relax while the two of them played together!]

[And Jordan was out of town so as soon as he came home we jumped right into a family day.  It was the best.  The zoo in the morning, Findlay Market afterwards and then grabbed lunch, stopped into a candy store, and headed home so EVERYONE could take a nap :)]

[And Sunday night we made an amazing dinner with the salmon Jordan caught in Alaska – it was delish!]

peek into my week

Hi!

So excited to try and be back to a regularly scheduled program.  This last month has been absolute nuts (and there is still crazy ahead) but I am finally feeling in a groove at the new house.

SO – here is a peek into our week 🙂

[We took the girls down to the Lunken Airport observation deck to watch the planes and they had the best time running around!  Highly recommend!]

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!
