I just got my son’s bus schedule for Kindergarten! Aaaaah!!!!!!!!! Where did the summer go? Back to school stuff is in full effect in every store, and I have to admit I am getting a little excited to start shopping.
This week was pretty busy. Let me give you a brief rundown.
We completed our first week of Swim Lessons and my oldest had his final T-Ball Game. He was VERY excited about his trophy.
I’ve been keeping up with my healthy eating plan, took a Modern Dance Class, and met with my Book Club. This was the first time I didn’t actually finish the book, but a few others didn’t either, so I didn’t feel too bad. Plus, it was just nice to be out with the ladies. We met at a beer garden, and they had some live music too. I guess it was more a night out than a book club meeting, but don’t tell my husband.
Friday night, my husband grilled out, then had a fire in the fire pit. We wanted everyone to be able to enjoy it, but we got started late, and the twins needed to get to bed. Everyone did get to enjoy the yummy (and healthy) dinner. Dad and oldest had S’mores by the fire too. I was good, and didn’t indulge since I may have had a glass of wine the night before.
It was also my Dad’s birthday, so I got the boys to sing Happy Birthday, my oldest made a card, and my Dad brought them cupcakes when he came to join us for swimming. If I could figure out how to do it, I’d put the video on here. I’m not quite that technically savvy yet.
Overall, it was a pretty good week. I’m not sure what the weekend has in store, but I’ll share it with you tomorrow.
Hope you’re enjoying the last bits of Summer. What are your fun plans?

Yum! That dinner plate looks awesome.
You guys are adorable!
Awe. Thank you!
Our bus schedule arrived too…crazy!
I know! Although, I was happy it was later than I thought. The boys are really going to miss each other 🙁
I love having bonfires, too, but we run into the same problem with young kids/bedtimes. It’s getting better as they get older, but we’re not ‘there’ yet. Are you going to cry on the first day of kindergarten? My daughter barely batted an eye…I cried in the car like a baby after dropping her off.
I’m pretty sure I will. I was getting a little teary at orientation. I’m sure my son won’t even give me a backwards glance.

I remember when I was younger and how exciting it was to go school shopping. To be young again. I’ve also been trying to get healthier again. However, when you mention S’mores, we got a bag of S’mores Oreos…they are hard to resist.
S’mores Oreos?!?!?! Good thing I haven’t seen those yet.
Congrats to the T-Ball Champ!:) Dinner looked lovely. I love a nice evening grilling and relaxing by the fire. Perfect summer night fun!
Yes, TGIF was my shout yesterday! Food looks great hope you all enjoyed it!
Thank you! We did!

Haha it is summer all the time here. So the biggest plan is to get a fire pit and finally get all the moving things sorted out. I can’t believe how fast summer goes though! This summer has gone really fast! But maybe it’s because we have such a limited time here in Hawaii. I think 2 more years are going to fly by! Then I’ll have a kindergartener!
Yes. I think time goes faster and faster each year.

It sounds like you had a busy week. =D I myself CANNOT wait for my 2 older to go back to school. I got fed up with their arguing and informed them if it didn’t stop that I would be doing what my aunt did to HER 2 oldest:
“Keep it up and I’m going to sit you on chairs and your going to sit and stare at each other until you apologize.”
I’m happy to say, they realized I was DONE and they didn’t argue the rest of the day. =D Ahhhhh!
Good for you!
Wow sounds like a fun filled week. Now I want to have some s’mores 😉
That does sound like a great week! Are the boys excited to be going back to school? My favorite part of school use to be the school shopping. I think that’s wher I get my love for all things office supplies. Ugh, yeah – that sounds weird when it’s said out loud, hah. Happy Saturday you guys!
Ha! My Dad used to sell office supplies, so no it’s not weird to me 🙂
Sounds like a busy week, and like everyone had lots of fun too ! YAY! for Healthy Eating plans, I’ve lost 55 pounds following mine, I’m sure you will do great !!
That’s awesome! Congratulations!

it’s always a blessing to passed a week full of different events. birthdays are indeed a blessing to celebrate.
Don’t Dare say Last bits of summer, it will make me cry we still have 6 weeks before our kids go back to school. After last winter I am seriously traumatized and don’t want to see summer end like never before.
Sorry…I take it back. We’ve got tons of summertime left 🙂

Book clubs are awesome for getting out of the house and socializing!

Sounds like a fun weekend. Smores are always a treat!

What book is your club discussing? Good job on the healthy eating plan
Amber NElson says
Fridays are the best. There’s just something about Friday where you can breathe.
Debbie Denny says

Kindergarden so fast! Oh my! Looks like you had a great week. Hope you had a great weekend too!
Congratulations to the champ! You had a busy week. I’m excited to shop for school supplies, too.
What a fun and busy week you’ve had. School supply shopping is in full swing and all the stores are jampacked.
already? Oh my! Our school doesn’t start back until September 8th! I’m excited for it but also a bit sad… I have one starting Kindergarten too!
Lena Blair says
Mmmm, Chicken, corn on the cob and Smores!! Fave dinner and dessert for sure!
I am still waiting to get the back to school info for both my boys. They start in September so I hope they get the info out soon before school is really right around the corner.
