boys. end of summer.
It's getting tough now that we have something to do five mornings out of seven. For me, that is tough...I have thoroughly enjoyed those toddler days of lazy activities scheduled around naps and bed times. Summer, I have a feeling, will become even sweeter to us.
On the flip side of that though...I LOVE having older children.
I am SO very thankful for this new season of life. I feel like the last few years of babyhood and toddler hood have been survival years for me. Tough, tough years.
I've said before that it has taken me having kids to realize that I am not a baby person. Not that I don't adore tiny parts and the special time that is having a newborn...but these last few months with older (able to communicate) kids I have really felt like I have hit my stride...I am well slept...life is less crazy with older kids. Not EASIER but I feel better equipped for the stage we are in now...more so than the tiny person days. I am grateful for the experiences but looking forward to each new day with these growing little me.
Here's what we've been up to lately...
It's a creek...full of rocks to throw, wildlife to seek out, sticks to hit things with and water to play in...basically everything that a little boy could ask for.
It's my favorite thing about Charlottesville...the loyalty to Hokies.
We've had some good good days lately...trying to pack in as much as we can before Winter traps us in the house for a couple of months. :)
