Life Lately

Just a little bit of this and that from the past few weeks…

Hadley was at a sleepover, so Hayden had some quality time with us 🙂 We went out to dinner at a local restaurant we love: The Bear and the Butcher…and then Hayden talked us into ice cream at Graeters.

We wrapped up summer with our church’s back to school picnic. The kids had a great time running around, eating (too many) desserts, playing on bounce houses, and even going on horse rides with friends.

Official big kid status—the kids have been riding their bikes to school once or twice a week. While I’m kind of bummed we aren’t walking together as much, I know they are excited to feel like big kids having a little more independence. My friend who is a teacher at their school (hi, Cari!) sent me this pic at the end of the school day because I was a bit nervous about them making the trek (.5 miles ;)) home. All was good.

GG (my mom) and Gma (my grandma) visited a couple of weekends ago. They always come bearing gifts. Hayden and Hadley were both excited about their new KC Chiefs shirts, but Hayden was extra excited for Mahomes Magic Crunch. He’s still torn on if he should eat it or not. 😉

Lots of Homer snuggles going on at our house. I’m losing the battle of ‘no Homer on the couch.” #TGHC (thank goodness he’s cute!)

Dressed in their Sunday best. I always love seeing what they pick out to wear to church. Hadley’s dress is courtesy of Gma…and super cute.

I attended Curriculum Night at the kids’ school. I always love going to this event at their school (I’m a teacher nerd, ok?!)…and hearing about what’s going on in the classroom. Hayden’s teacher included this handout in the packet…and I loved every word of it. Real talk. Truth.

Most Saturdays at the fall are spent at Kroger Field cheering on the CATS. I’ve said it before…I don’t bleed blue…but I’m not mad about it that my kids and husband do. While Hadley and I don’t always make it into the stadium, we did last weekend. Sometimes, we just let the guys go into the game and cheer for the CATS while we stay outside and socialize 🙂 (or when it’s less than 60 degrees, stay at home and watch the game on the couch!_ It was a super hot Saturday, but we made the most of it and had fun with friends…and the CATS won…so that’s always a good thing!

These girls have my heart. Hadley is so blessed to have such great friends…and even better, Travis and I are friends with their parents. It’s such a blessing. These ladies were super serious about their tailgating football game…but stopped and let me snap their photo…and then…

My friend Amy said we should recreate the same pic! #momlife #friends

Travis and I had an impromptu date night on Saturday. Both kids were invited to a birthday party, so we had a couple of hours free and no sitter to have to pay! 🙌🏻

I honestly wanted to stay home and get takeout (#homebodystatus), but glad Travis insisted on going out to one of our favorite places: OBC kitchen. (Bacon in a glass with peanut butter dipping sauce—best appetizer in town).

That’s a little bit of our life lately. We are in the throes of back to school, sports, routines…but walking the fine line of not wanting summer to end but ready for all things fall.

Life lately, y’all.

Take care,
