So long Sweet Summer!

So I know I have totally fallen off the blogging bandwagon and I do hate that I have been so terrible at blogging and recording our daily lives...but I am so stressed just living out these days, that I don't have much time to actually write down or record what we've been up to.  These summer days are coming to a close and Fall is approaching quickly.  My cuties will only be 2, 4, and 6 for a few more weeks because I will have a SEVEN year old!  My sweet Bre is going to be turning 7 and she is just growing way too fast.  I blinked and she is in 1st grade!!

We had a wonderful time at the beach at the end of August to close out our summer and it was just the icing on the cake to a wonderful summer.  We took a trip with my family to Watercolor and it was so much fun.  I will admit that I worried for about a month leading up to the trip, because we were staying in a beach home with stairs and a pool...both a recipe for disaster when it comes to Baylor.  I would wake up in the middle of the night just panicking...thinking about Baylor slipping out one of the doors and falling into the pool...just a total nightmare for me.  After discussing this with my family, we decided that hiring a babysitter to keep extra eyes on Bay Bay was the perfect solution.  We took our fabulous babysitter with us and it was just so amazing...I was able to relax and not feel so stressed out with the kids.  I felt totally spoiled having her to help me with everything from bath time, to sunscreen to changing diapers.  It was such a wonderful time, spending those special moments with my family.  I have the most amazing family and we sure did make many memorable moments on that trip.  Dinners out, beach time, pool time, golf cart rides, pedicures, late night talks, walks with my mama and tons of laughs throughout.  Those are the memories I will cherish forever.

After our fabulous trip, my kiddos all started school.  I know they were all thrilled to get back into a routine and I was able to find my sanity again after having them to myself all summer! Aubrey Lane is in 1st grade, Weston is in PreK4 and Baylor Boo is in the Frog class.  The boys are just part time because I want to savor these days that I can keep them home...I know first hand with Bre just how quickly it goes.  Aubrey is rocking 1st grade so far and I am so incredibly proud of the things she is accomplishing. Here's to a wonderful school year!

Love these cuties...praying daily that they make an impact on those around them.
