With the school year starting and Summer drawing to a close, I’m finding my blogging mojo again. I’m not sure why it fades in the Summertime but I’m thinking it’s not just me. We’re slowly getting back into our school time groove and I am loving it. I’m really happy with how things have been going and I thought a life update was due here.
Last I updated on our family, we were settling in to living back home in Indiana. Things are amazing, truly. I was so worried about this move and though it took me a little extra time to feel at home this time, I am finally settled. Jake is working for a private transport company while going through classes to get his EMT certification. From there we are looking down two pretty scary paths. Both include lots of school and unfortunately more time away from home. I plan to do a post on this stuff specifically some time soon, so I won’t speak too much on it now. He will officially be an EMT at the end of November, though!
The girls have settled so well. Piper seems to have really bloomed over the last few months. Her talking was developing seemingly slow (oh, hey pacifier!), but now she’s got tons of words and I’m so happy. She still isn’t the best sleeper but I’m starting to think that’s just her.
Addie and I started school two weeks ago. I officially have a kindergartner! At the moment, I am still waiting to order her curriculum for the year so I’m supplementing with what I have for now. We’re still making our way through Phonics Pathways for reading and we’re doing some simple math. She is a math girl through and through and keeps surprising me with how quickly she catches on. I can’t wait to purchase her math program for the year.
As for me, I am working on getting us all organized. With Jake’s current schedule we are still kind of flying by the seat of our pants but we have a norm at least. Each day has a routine, and that makes me happy. Last week we went to the State Fair here in Indy and had a lot of fun. That was something I was really looking forward to doing this Summer since we had been out of state so long. Next on my list is the Children’s Museum and the Zoo when it cools off a bit.
I’m so looking forward to the Fall weather and all the fun stuff that brings. I hope to bring lots of fun new Autumn crafts and recipes to the blog in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for that!
Tell me below, has the school year started for you? What are you most excited for this Fall?
