I'm finally catching my breath after a crazy busy week. We've celebrated Lily's birthday, we've sent Andrew off to band camp, we're back into a routine with Reagan, and Violet thankfully just goes with the flow. Now begins a few weeks of trying to enjoy our last little bit of summer vacation before back to school. We have a few more birthdays to celebrate this summer and a backyard camping night we're all looking forward to, Before we know it, we will be back into our earlier bedtimes and early morning risings. I cannot believe Andrew is starting high school! School starts much earlier for him this year, but being done at 2:00pm sounds great to me. As much as I love summer, I do love the routine of the school year.

I'm working to get some more space on my computer, so that I can get all my summer pictures on my computer to finally blog about our summer! I wanted to throw up deleting so many folders of pictures from my laptop and currently only having them in one place. If I knew how to access our backup drive more quickly, I think I'd feel better. That's on my schedule this week.
Also, I'm going to be taking Lily's 4 year pictures and Violet's 9 month pictures this week. That's a must do this week. I love Lily's 4th birthday shirt and can't wait to share it with you as well as the fabulous etsy shop I ordered it from. The owner was phenomenal! I also have another shop to share who I've ordered from several times who went above and beyond for me!
Of course, just as we've wrapped up Lily's 4th birthday celebrations, I've begun thinking about Violet's 1st birthday party. This one is bittersweet. My last first birthday party to plan. We already have the date set-- Oma will be here from Arizona! It'll probably take me from now until then to figure out what cake to make her.
I also need to start looking through clothes that I have for the girls again to determine what I have for the fall and what I need as consignment sale time is rolling around. I feel like I am always changing out closets. Only this time the clothes that Violet has outgrown won't get packed away for another baby. I'm looking forward to the space, but again another bittersweet event.
Time to get Lily to bed and myself soon to follow. I hope.
