Good Bye Summer, Hello Crazy Pants.
I also decided that just because I could fit into shorts from five years ago, maybe I shouldn't wear them out in public. I actually had a few pairs from when I was 18, so nearly twenty years old. They fit and not in a horrible way but, you know I just don't need to wear those anymore.
We had a garage sale, and now I feel like I could have another garage sale as I am addicted to getting rid of baby things and clearing space. I don't miss anything that we got rid of. I was exhausted though, and thus I will wait till next year.
We actually started and completed some house projects (crown molding, paint, stair remodel). Anyone that has young children knows what a miracle this. I feel like our yard was not completely neglected this year either.
And I transitioned the girls into full time 'school' or day-care. This was major and we made it. I now have both girls not sleeping in our room (I wouldn't say Taylor is a great sleeper yet, but better). They are both doing well, it is not perfect. I still worry (I always will) but I feel comfortable with what I have found for them. I really pray that I don't have to change things for awhile for them.
Now the brag will end, because I always keep it real. There is tons we didn't get to. We were going to go camping. There was much more on our project list that is still not done. I didn't compete in as many races as I wanted. I wish we had a few more 'fun times', and less run around time. And if I ever have these kids figured out, well I'll probably will be in the old folks home.
Life is such a work in progress. Sometimes I have to just stop and celebrate the ending of a beautiful season, and the little things we were able to enjoy and accomplish. And even though we say good-bye to summer, really September is so nice around here I vow to fit in a few more fun times including hanging out with the little Ms. Crazy Pants and Sassy Sister.
