Summer In Review

Monday I officially start back to school. Most teachers dread the end of summer. I am looking forward to getting back to a routine, seeing my students, meeting new ones, and being around adults again. Of course, I will miss seeing my little dumplin as much but he loves daycare and I love my job. Plus, financially I need to work. We are trying to get a handle on all this debt. Over the weekend I sat down and wrote it all down. Seeing it in black and white really opens your eyes up. My husband and I at least have a plan now. 

I wanted to take a moment to look back at our accomplishments over these summer months.

Jack and I have had a lot of fun together.

I completed 2 weeks at the State Department of Education in Little Rock working on frameworks for media specialists. Jack crawled for the first time in that hotel room. My mom and Jack got to really bond during those long hours.

We got flooring in the living room, hallway, Jack's room, and the guest room. We excites me more than you could know.

Jack began pulling up.

Jack got to spend some quality time with his cousin Bennett. They are finally getting to an age where they can play together a little more. 

 I read a couple of books.

I did a lot of cooking.

J worked a lot and completed another semester of school.

Overall it was a good summer. My first summer as a mama and I think I did okay. It was hard-long days and long nights and then sometimes long days and really long nights. With J being gone a lot with work and school it all was on my shoulders. Some days I handled it like a champ and sometimes I cried and whined to make it through the day.

  1. He is such a cutie! It's so hard for me to think of summer as over because there's still half of August left. To me, we still have until Labor Day :-)
