I am loving this summer so far. Just loving it. I took Devan to his first swim lesson today, something I couldn’t have done if I were working and I really enjoyed it. And he loved it! We are filling our days with swimming, reading, gardening, popsicles, playing with friends, and lots of playtime at home and in the yard. Leah is still our big joy- full of smiles and laughter and SO much fun to be around. And Devan is so wise beyond his years, he keeps us on our toes for sure. I am feeling like I definitely made the right decision and that this is a good time to have a break.
It isn’t all good, some days the kids are completely exhausting and I am still learning to pace myself. I want to go everywhere and do everything with them but oftentimes we all just need some downtime. Tuesday I ended up in the ER with the worst headache of my life. The type of migraine that is so bad you can’t open your eyes and every little sound is painful. So thankful for the sweet relief of pain medication and the fact we still have childcare available on short notice!
Overall, more fun than not. I’ve been sewing, but not much during the day. It’s hitting me how fast these kiddos are growing up on me and I want to enjoy being their mom for these next few years. I do have a few new quilts to show you and a stack of other projects, but it’s hard to make the time to get everything photographed and so I procrastinate. A giant homemade post is coming soon!
You know how I said I wasn’t going to share any vacation pictures? That was before I saw all of the good pictures Mom and Dad captured, so I couldn’t resist. Enjoy! (Click on any picture to see them all larger.)
