A quick update & back to school fun

Hey strangers!

Today is the first time in the last 5 days that I’ve had time to get on my laptop and think about blog stuff. We’ve been crazy busy, and there’s been a lot of stuff changing around here!

The kids and I got all moved over the weekend. My husband still has some tattoos to finish & some loose strings to wrap up, so we won’t see him for about another week or so. In the meantime, we’re at my parents’ house and the kids and having a blast being at Grandma & Grandpa’s house- especially since we’ve only been able to see them a few times a year because we’ve been living so far away. Now they get to see them every day! And it really is a nice change for me, because I hadn’t really made any friends in our town and I was feeling very isolated and alone the last few months over there. I was really miserable and it was getting almost unbearable at times.
Yesterday was Ayden’s first day of 3rd grade, and had kindergarten orientation.


Today Lily had her first real day of school.


And then the kids rode the bus home together today for the first time.


It’s so crazy that my kids are now going to same schools I went to.

I apologize in advance for the lack of regular blogging right now but we’ve got a lot of new stuff going on and it’s going to take us a little bit to get adjusted.
Hope everyone had/is having a great back to school time!
Anyone excited that it’s almost Fall? I can’t wait to dig out my boots.
