Hello and Happy Monday! Today, I’m sharing a recap of this past month. It was the first full month of school, we had lots of activities…and then everything came to a halt.
At the beginning of the month, we celebrated Hadley with the You are Special red plate for making her school’s dance team.
On this day, I swung buy the library to pick up some books, we had breakfast for dinner, Hadley had dance, and Hayden had golf.
After a busy day at school, middle school Hadley wanted to go to my school’s football game to see her friends.
We kicked off Labor Day weekend with Hayden’s cross country meet, followed by Hayden’s golf match and Hadley tailgated with friends.
We had a lazy rainy Sunday with IHOP for brunch and soup for dinner.
On Labor Day, I got caught up around the house, the kids went to the pool for a couple of hours, and we grilled out for dinner.
It was back to school, grocery pick up, and a cross country meet for Hayden.
Hadley was excited for her first middle school dance practice, and then we had no other evening activities! Hallelujah!
On this day, more golf for Hayden, and more dance for Hadley.
After school on Friday, I had my monthly facial followed by…
Hayden’s end of the season baseball party (with special guest UK pitcher Alex Degen)
Wow! The 11th marked twenty years since 9/11, a cross country meet for Hayden, and then family fun at the UK/MU game.
On the 12th, Hayden had his last baseball tournament, and Hadley had her final bridging ceremony as a Girl Scout.
On Monday the 13th, we went to Hadley’s friend’s volleyball game!
The kids had an early morning ortho appointment, Homer got his allergy shot, and Hayden had a cross country meet.
This day was rainy, and we had no evening activities; I decided to get a pedicure after school and chose a fall-ish color for my toes.
This was a busy day from start to finish with school, golf for Hayden, the kids attended their school’s football game, we had leftovers for dinner and then the kids had some homework to do before bed.
This was my favorite kind of Friday when I picked up pumpkins at Kroger and my favorite garden center.
On Saturday, Hayden had a cross country meet, a golf match, and I decorated the front porch and then had dinner with Hadley.
On this Sunday, we went to church, I finished a book, and the Chiefs were on Sunday Night Football.
It was a rainy Monday with lots of driving: errands after school, I picked Hayden up from cross country practice, I took Hadley to dance, and ended the evening just hanging out watching KC Royals on TV.
Another rainy day, and I spent the evening getting my inside fall decorations finished up.
We had more rain, soup for dinner, and my mom came to town.
*This is when life slowed down a bit.
The kids were quarantined due to a Covid exposure, and my new Amazon fall pillows arrived.
I picked up donuts for breakfast, the kids did school from home, and my mom and Gus came to visit.
This was an unexpected lazy day that started with a rainy morning,
a beautiful afternoon with MU football on TV, and UK football on in the evening.
On this day, my mom went home, and the weather was so pretty that I finished up the front porch.
I stayed home with the kids all day, and they continued to do school at home.
I went to school, Hadley was home to check the mail when her new sweatshirt arrived, and I ended up going on an evening walk.
My new mirror arrived!
On Thursday, I went to school, Travis stayed home with the kids, and we had a sweet drop off from friends.
As you can see, the end of the month was kind of a blur and also felt like the movie Ground Hog’s Day all at once. It sort of felt like the wheels fell off the September bus! Thanks for hanging in there with me 🤪 I’m sure October will be better.
Tomorrow, I’m sharing my September Amazon purchases.
See you then,
