Today was my last Friday of summer. Wishing I could sleep in, but couldn't. I was awake at 7am, without a wakeup call from my little sprite crawling into bed, followed by my middle child.
I hopped out of bed, followed by a jolt from the java that gets the juices pumping. Andy surprised me with this fabulous new mug. He had a coupon!
The sisters putting a puzzle together after breakfast.
Her smile says it all, doesn't it?
A Cinderella story, like no other. So many possibilities are waiting for her this year. Possibilities a few months ago weren't even an option, but one look at her and she's our Cinderella Miracle. Sometimes I watch her and think, "What will her year look like? What will she accomplish?" I know she will be loved in both schools she will attend. She is constantly in motion, waiting for the next adventure, something new to experience, and never is one to sit and watch time fly by. She sucks the marrow out of every moment. She begins her daycare/preschool on Tuesday. She is ready, a sponge waiting to soak up and learn.
Addy and Austin are excited for their new year to begin, to see their friends daily, and to see their little sister at school. A few big kids adventures to complete before I go back to work.
During Sarah's nap, Addy made a chain of Flexeez.
The blue heron came back for a visit and a snack.
I noticed the reflection in the water, after I took the picture. I love these cool, sky-blue, billowing cotton cloud days we've been having.
Enjoying these last few days of summer. Sucking the marrow out of life, and embracing our journey.
We've a low key weekend, our first family portrait and eating with friends.
