weekend in high point

we are getting ready for a really fun weekend, but first i want to remember what we did last weekend!  i couldn’t even remember the last time i had been to my parents’ house and since the office was closed for moving i took the opportunity to visit high point.  we left right after school on friday.  we helped decorate the tree, ate lots of treats, saw Grandmommy, and visited old salem!  mom and dad spoiled as….. as usual.

it was fun to take the kids to old salem, i always liked going and i had been wanting to take them at christmas time.  we had a great time.  mom and dad treated us to a wonderful lunch at the tavern and we loaded up on treats at the bakery.  my kids ask A LOT of questions.  they loved running in the town square.

it was special to stop by the college and academy where grandmommy attended in the 1930s (and jean in 1996 🙂

 

thanks mom and dad, we love you!

and in big news, jackson’s reading skills have really taken off and maggie is starting to take steps! so proud of them!

Back to reality 

Jackson got on the bus just a few minutes ago but I already miss him. We finished the summer with a bang during his first track out and it felt so appropriate that he tracked back in on October 1st. It even feels like a new season outside today! 

We had a great time though, lots of movie nights, playtime, slow mornings, and road trip adventures. 
I love this guy.

some summer scenes

as i type this, it is rest time at our house.  maggie is sleeping upstairs and jackson is watching paw patrol.

we were at the pool at 9:40 for Jackson’s swim lessons.  he has had them for almost two weeks, tomorrow morning is the last day.  maggie and I sit in the shade talking to friends while jackson swims.  most days we have stayed for a couple of hours and today was no exception.  im thankful both kids love the water and it is really fun to watch jackson swim better and better.  i got to enjoy sitting in the shade with maggie asleep on me for a while today while jackson swam.  not every morning goes this smoothly (i.e. yesterday) but today has been a good day so far.

the summer has also included a few days at the beach, popsicles, lunches at home together, lazy mornings, iced coffee (for mommy at least), extra screen time for jackson (mommy fail), and lots of playtime with cousins and friends.

these are good days.  can’t wrap my mind around the fact that jackson starts kindergarten in just over 2 weeks!
