This post is shamefully overdue, but I’m not going to make excuses of why I haven’t blogged in a while because I only have one: I haven’t felt like it. That is the truth. My health has been the main reason I have not felt like it. So, instead of using this blog to “complain” about how I feel or the lack of feeling, I just stopped blogging. I was so tired and hormonal that the last thing on my mind was keeping up with the blog. Which isn’t really fair because that is how many of you find out about the on goings of the kids. (Btw, I am doing much better now. I have cut a lot of stuff out of my diet and working out regularly to help manage stress.) Time is also factor, but you can make time for things, right? So, putting that aside I would like to update you on our life… if you are still interested ;)
The summer has gone by way too fast, but I would be lying if I didn’t admit to being overly excited about this upcoming fall. I am turning 30 and my old soul is so excited!! I actually had the thought, ‘Wow! I am going to be 40 is 10 years. That is so cool!’ I know, I know… I’m weird. Any way, back to this summer. I feel like we just survived.
-We had my grandparents, my parents and my sister come by in the late spring, which was a lot of fun.
-It rained most of the summer, so we didn’t get out too much.
-My dad came back through for business and celebrated Marseille’s 4th birthday. Yup! No babies here! I cannot believe that she is four. She woke up on here birthday and said, “I’m four, I am not 3 a-n-y-m-o-r-e!!” Went to the Children’s Museum for her birthday.
-Danny’s parents made a day trip here to have a birthday dinner with us for Marseille.
-I went paddleboarding… If I lived near water, I would want one sooooo badly. I loved it!!
-The kids went to FL with my parents and Danny went to Chicago for business and I had a wonderful stay-cation.
– We too various hiking and picnic trips. Especially trips to the Biltmore.
– Brought the kids to the train fountain downtown and let them play in it.
-My sister came for a quick visit before heading back to FL
– Went to the zoo as much as we could, and fed the ducks and ducklings a couple times too.
-We did the summer reading program again, but the baseball game got rained out… not sure if I am going to do the library one anymore.
-We had a few doctor appointments early on in the summer and everything is looking good.
-We started homeschooling the last week of August. The kids are loving it, and I am loving the structure in our day.
-We just had a family vacation for just the 4 of us. It has been 3 years since we have done that and it was fun! We went to Charleston, and ended the week with a couple days in Charlotte, so the kiddos could hang out with their grandparents. Danny and I went to Carowinds for the day.
And now, we are at the present moment! I’m sure that I am forgetting stuff… but that is what happens when you wait so long to post!! I will try to get some pictures together and post them later a long with some news that needs another post… no we are not pregnant!
xo, nikki :)
