1. First Week
The first week of school is OVER! We survived! Ollie has been doing great. There were a couple times that he got emotional and told me “I just want to stay home with you all day”, my sweet homebody. Atlas almost cried the first day of school because he wanted to go, too. Hence him trying to slip into the lineup.
Everyday at pick up Ollie is super happy and tells me only good things. I’ve begun a pretty rigid schedule for myself because that’s what I do when I’m stressed and that has helped ME a ton with the transition. But that’s for anther post…
1. End of Summer
OLLIE STARTS SCHOOL ON MONDAY. I was really upset about this fact for a while, but now it’s turned into excitement. Plus I’m mad burnt out* (see 6th quick take) and am looking forward to my crazy organized schedule I’ve planned out for every weekday. If anyone wants to meet up ever, I’m free Thursdays from 9am-11am for “playdates”. -_- Something else I penciled in my rigid schedule is:
2. Huset Fitness
Remember this! long and forgotten about. Well, with the new schedule I’ve made 3 simple goals for me to meet everyday: drink a gallon of water, 5,000 steps, and a 10 minute workout. You can join along over at Huset Fitness!
This post is basically a mammoth amount of photos, harhar, but a couple weeks ago we took a trip to Mammoth with Daniel’s family and we all had SO MUCH FUN. I had never been and this was one of the longest drives we’ve taken with the kids plus Poppy so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We packed a ton of snacks, a couple new toys and books, loaded up iPad and had a failed attempt listening to the Winnie the Pooh audiobook. Poor Ollie was trying to listen to it over Prim’s cries. Maybe that’s why later in the drive he woke her up after only 10 minutes into her nap… (that went as well as you can imagine).
Poppy was drugged up on some Benadryl so she was actually a dream. Thinking about giving her it daily…. -_-
The Eastern Sierras were beautiful. I was surprised by how accessible they were and how well the roads were. Especially compared to the death cliff drive to Lake Arrowhead or Big Bear.
