Today is officially the last day of our summer vacation. Hudson starts preschool tomorrow and Hayes will be going, too, though his isn’t technically preschool.
I’m excited for Hudson because he loves school, but I’m especially excited for Hayes to have an opportunity to be around other kids a couple days a week and have an opportunity to be away from his brother.
We’ve had a really great summer. At times it was busy and full of activity and at times we took it really easy and just hung out at home. I’m thankful for the summer I had with my boys, and I wanted to be able to look back and see all that we did in a nutshell.
We went fishing on our friends’ farm and got to hang out with horses.
We went to Greenville to celebrate the Smith family and Mary Brooks’s miraculous little life, and saw lots of sweet friends when we were there.
I taught 3 year olds at VBS with Anna and we had a great time hanging out with Gracie and Mary Elizabeth all summer.
Hudson had a great time at swim lessons.
Uncle Walker came to visit for a week.
We visited the Charleston Aquarium with RC and PC.
We celebrated Hudson’s 3rd birthday at the beach!
We spent a week at Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms, South Carolina with RC, PC, KK and Poppie.
We said “goodbye” to Hayes’s doc band and the wonderful therapists who helped him.
We potty-trained Hudson!
We spent two weeks in Indiana with KK and Poppie at their house. We celebrated 4th of July there.
I went to Atlanta for Market with Nina and my mom, and got to have dinner with these lovely ladies.
We spent a week in Orange Beach, Alabama with KK, Poppie, and Uncle Walker
We had family photos taken by Sarah Lyn Photography while we were in Orange Beach
Todd and I went to the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island
And, of course, we had so many lazy days at home just hanging out and learning to share.
I hope you all had a great summer and are excited about the start of a new year!
