I made a promise. I said yes. I vowed I do. When I reflect back to our wedding day I realize now that I had no idea what it took to grow a marriage. We were two kids in our 20s just getting out on our own, a few years into our careers and no big worries on our plate. Little did I know how big of a life we were about to build together.
So this time of year is always crazy to me. We get those chilly nights and warm days but we start getting tired of wearing summer clothes, but we aren’t quite ready to bundle ourselves up head to toe (is anyone actually ever ready for that?!). In the next few weeks though everyone will start running to the orchards and farms to go apple and pumpkin picking. Love this time of year!
I have to start this post off with heart felt prayers for those in the Caribbean and Florida who have all been effected by Irma. I haven’t stopped watching the coverage and the devastation just breaks my heart. I have close family in Florida as I know many others do and I’m praying for all our friends and family.
Summer mode has come to an end in our house. Summer started her first year of kindergarten this week. Being her birthday is at the cutoff we have decided she will do kindergarten at her current school and then repeat it next year in elementary. I think giving her that extra year will help her on her so many levels. Time to get serious Summer! Welcome to the world of schoolwork!
And that’s a wrap. Happy Labor Day friends! The official end to my favorite season of the year. Summer went by way too fast but we made it a memorable one. This was the summer that our Summer learned how to swim all on her own. Hopefully we get a few more beach and pool days in during September because we aren’t quite ready to pack away the bathing suits in the House of Leo! What can I say? We are summer people!
