School is officially out for the summer!!!!!
Homeschool 2020 (of the unexpected variety 😉 ) is done, and now we settle into another new rhythm. One I *mostly* look forward to, haha, with a greater sense of taking in the moments and practicing gratitude each day. Last summer felt hard, not because of my children, but because of the expectations I put on myself. This time, I want it to be different!
With my youngest being mobile and the weather still tolerable, lol, we are getting lots and lots of outdoor time!! We all love it and NEED it! I can feel the difference when I haven’t had my daily Vitamin D, and I can also feel that I’m not as limber as I used to be when I try to get down on my kids level to play. It doesn’t stop me, but I’m more inclined to be vigilant about staying hydrated and reaching for Nestlé® Pure Life®+ to drink!
When I was pregnant with Evie my sweet friends and family threw me a “Rainbow Baby Fiesta” baby shower. It was colorful and fun, and we munched on my favorite Mexican food.
When it came time to plan Evie’s first birthday I thought it would be great to somehow connect that special day with this one, so I decided on “Let’s Taco Bout A Party” as a theme!
I knew it had lots of potential for cuteness and decor, but more than anything I wanted to make sure we had plenty of delicious food. We had tacos (duh,lol), but I also wanted a show-stopping cake that would tie in beautifully with the theme.
We partnered with AGM Bakery for our cake needs and they did not disappoint!!

As the summer winds down I like looking back at some of our more memorable moments. It wasn’t all fun and games, and in fact, I struggled quite a bit with my own patience and the constant bickering between my girls. However, the sweetest things happened when we were all together and I am going to miss having them home. At least some days. 😉
I have one child who is very nervous to start school for the first time, so I’ve been trying to think of ways to make the transition as smooth as possible.
One of our favorite traditions was having a movie night so I’ve promised to continue that throughout the school year as well. They love movies like their mama, and it gives them something to look forward to. We can cuddle up on the couch together, or, thanks to 3M we can treat ourselves to a movie in the theater!

It’s the end of summer vacation and I find myself once again asking, “where did the time go?” These months seem to fly by faster and faster with each passing year, but for me there is one distinct difference that sets this upcoming school year apart.
Instead of one child in school full-time, I’ll have two! Woohoo!!
My sweet Lily is going to be in Pre-K, right across the hall from her big sissy’s 2nd grade class!
We have some nerves as well as excitement over here, but as I plan for us to get back into a solid routine, the question of school lunch always comes into play.
