Surfing Sunday 09.30

Ooooh boy what a year this week has been. Is anyone else totally exhausted? I think this week my TV will only tune into home renovation shows, cartoons, and The Good Place (omg if you’re not watching this show, you need to). I might still watch these while huddled under blankets, surrounded by empty chicken…

We’re a month into the school year and the kids are settling in well. Annie has started her 8,000 different school-related activities, and James is figuring out the new system and routine of a kindergarten classroom. They both have FANTASTIC teachers who we adore and couldn’t be more perfect for each of them if I’d…

Yesterday we threw my cousin, Leah, a baby shower in honor of the baby girl she’ll be having soon. I am SO EXCITED for another baby in the family, and since the last two were boys I’m especially excited for a little girl. They are so much fun to shop for with all of those…

On our last day in Hawaii, we rented stand-up paddle boards. Annie had been begging to do this because she remembered when I paddled her around the ocean five years ago, and really wanted to try it for herself. It was a windy day, so I tethered her board to mine to make sure she…

Aloha! We spent the last week on vacation in beautiful Maui, Hawaii. We had the┬ábest time relaxing, eating, going to the beach, eating, surfing, and eating. It was the perfect way to end our summer. I’ve had so much fun with the kids these last few months! But we are all very ready for school…

Surfing Sunday 08.05

We’re squeezing in every last bit of fun before school starts in a few weeks. The kids and I have gone swimming, marshmallow-roasting, ice blocking, trampoline-jumping, and slip-n-sliding this week. It’s been fun but being Super Summer Mom is exhausting! But I keep reminding myself that I don’t know if I’ll ever have another summer…
