4 People 12 Times
September. I have a love/hate thing for September. The weather is so beautiful but it also means back to school which means less time with my babies. It also is the time of year when my business picks back up though and that makes me happy. My son started kindergarten and my daughter started 2nd grade and we got into a groove with our drop offs and pick ups. It makes it harder for me to get things done when I have to always be somewhere in the middle of the day, but I wouldn't trade that half a day home with my boy for anything. We did all the mundane things this month like doctor appointments (and shots, ouch) and school forms. I started hosting Bible study again on Thursdays and I love it. I love having a bunch of people here. Plus, it forces me to clean my house which is kinda nice. My son turned 5 this month. I still can't believe it. I shot a wedding with a friend and did a bunch of client photo shoots. I got a new computer! It seriously has helped my productivity so much. I am able to get my editing done much more quickly now. Some friends came to visit from California and Texas. It's so great to see old friends. I started volunteering in the kids' classrooms which is always so fun for me. I love meeting all their little friends and getting a glimpse into their days. I'd say it was a pretty great month. We went to the park after school a bunch and the kids have spent countless hours playing outside with their friends. Sometimes it's the mundane things that make me smile. The time we went and got slushies (my son calls them flushies) from Sonic and took them to the park. The time I took photos of the kids in the backyard with all the neighbor kids. Oh, and I redid my bathroom just in time for my son's birthday party! I've gotta post some before and after photos for you guys. Sorry for the complete randomness of this post. Sometimes when I reflect on the past month I'm just reminded how blessed we are to just have a pretty ordinary life. We are happy and healthy and have great friends. What else could I ask for?
