Mom moment

Last night I had one of those moments where you think to yourself, "wow, this is such a mom thing to do."  I was just sewing some touches on to Myles' costume for Halloween.  Nothing big, but it just struck me as something I envisioned a mom doing.  
The other "mom" moment I experienced recently, was putting Madelyn to bed and she was tossing and turning trying to get comfortable and I burst out " Will you quit fidgeting and go to sleep!"  Totally something my own mother has said to me growing up.

I think I am going to try to record little things that make me happy or that I am grateful for.  I am sure there will be a lot that include my children and Matt, but I also want to be grateful and thankful for other blessings that don't directly have much to do with me.
Anyways, today I am grateful for gray skies...they really showcase the beauty of autumn leaves.

What are you thankful for?

Look what's growing..

Besides the kids of course!
We finally got around to planting grass.

We were worried it didn't take at first, 

But it seems to be doing just fine!

I'm back?

It has been a crazy busy summer.  Well, it is a crazy busy life I have got!  Our summer was full of visits to the splashpad, play dates, family time, movies, a couple of trips to the beach and so much more!  I will have to do a photo dump soon!
I also had a personal... I am not sure what the right word is.  Tragedy seem to great, issue not great enough.  Definitely a struggle and upset.  But we are moving past it and are continually thankful for all our blessings.  Not quite ready to go into details, we haven't even shared details with family, but we are all healthy and happy and that is the main thing we are focusing on.

Madelyn is in SK full time this year and I miss her!  I am off three days a week of which she is in school and I am working weekends when she is off!  the same craziness is what Matt and I do, but at least we are saving on daycare.  And the kids are usually home with at least one of us.
Meredith is a great help to me.  A second mother to Myles, or so she likes to think! Both kids help me out while Madelyn is in school and love getting her off the bus at the end of the day! 
Myles is growing in leaps and bounds!  He is very tall, but has slimmed down.  He isn't very verbal, which, I admit, worries me, but he grasps things very well and seems to understand.  So hopefully my worry is for nothing.  
And, despite our crazy work schedules, Matt and I are also doing well. We feel very blessed and thankful to be raising our family on this farm and in our beautiful home. Looking forward to all the memories we will be making.
