(Dressed for the Little Britches rodeo).
While I have thoroughly enjoyed this special time being at home I will admit it has been challenging learning how to manage & keep three kids realitively content day in & out.
I've also had to keep up with some patient needs while being off & with a newborn that hasn't been the easiest task.
But luckily I've had this girl around to help me out
Sometimes it didn't seem like the best idea but in retrospect we've got some funny memories.
We've splash padded, we've parked
Nana came up every week when I started working part-time to ease back into things & we were all so very thankful to have her around to help. Lily spent many hours napping in her arms.
We've summer-ed hard this year - we swam a lot at Nenny's house, ate Popsicles, ice cream, & snow cones (as much as I would allow)
It was like pulling teeth to get Annie's school summer packet done
(She actually lost 2 teeth this summer, one the day Lily was born & another mid-August)
But she persevered
Sure we've been cranky & fussed at each other some but overall we've had a great time together & we're all sad to see summer break come to a close.
