In the quest of being completely truthful (yet still optimistic to a T) I must say that my personal transition from summer to fall has been a B to the East.
It was largely impacted by some home reno projects.
But also, it was like BAM!
Field trips x3.
Daddy's travel and workload x 1 Million.
Mama's sense of calm and "having her shiz together" was at an astounding -150.
But I'm happy to say we're doing it!
We may be treading water most days but we're officially making it through.
Gracefully? Hell to the no.
There are these little moments of tranquility. These glimpses of "everything is A-OK" in the midst of our literal saw dust and piles of homework and our stinky shin guards.
And I'm clinging to them however small and fleeting they may be. And I'm realizing that downtime with four boys is sparse. To say the least.
SO - fall "glimpses" of A-OK to keep us all celebrating the little victories:
Mowing + Nap Time = Multitasking at it's finest.
Soccer. All three of these boys have scored GOALS this season so far! It's fun to watch the "Gold Medals", the "Red Lava Monsters", and the "Green Raptors".
The birthday boy celebrating at the jump house with his buddies.
And playing archeologist with one of his favorite gifts.
Boone, the world's most patient & dedicated soccer fan - pre-game with Coach Ryno.
And Boone post blow-out at the end of another soccer game. :)
My Peach jam makin' buddy.
Feeling all the "fall-out" of a fall reno... doing what the rest of us wish we were doing.
And then walking around the house like a little boss. Eight months.
He's going to be walking next week. No joke.
Somehow I would like to cleverly tie this all up with a bow and say something like,
"We may not have it all together, but together we have it all."
But I'm too tired and we have more things to check off our to-do list before Ryno goes hunting.
Anyone going to Hawaii soon who needs an exhausted travel companion?
Count me in. :)
