Hi there! Just checking in. We are winding down the last bit of summer activities. Emi successfully finished her program that she attended at the farm, swimming, and we battled through a gentle separation program. FYI the program didn’t work all that well for us. There were a lot of factors (including it being a partial mommy and me…meaning some of the moms didn’t separate…so too many factors to pin down why it didn’t work well for us). Mia finished 4 exhausting but fun weeks at day camp. She is now in her last 4 days of Camp Move to Learn. It’s a camp that integrates kids that are typical and those with special needs, and it has been a very worthwhile experience for her. Two great programs for her this summer.
Here are a few random photos from the last few weeks. Including one from our first trip to Five Guys. Seriously…why hadn’t we tried this before!
So, many moons ago, Ten and I were a better than average fit couple. Two kids (3 pregnancies for me…none shall we say typical), a move to a new country, and then a move to a new state/town and buying of a house, just really made fitness like 0% important. Well Ten decided to get back into shape (which means gaining tons of muscle), and he soon after dislocated his shoulder at the gym. An X-Ray and MRI confirmed the damage. Luckily no surgery needed, but he does have to go through 8 weeks of rehab. Awesome.
Also, we have an architect coming to our house this week to start some renovations that need to be done to our house. Mia has asked if we can just move the entire house to the beach and add a “tower.” I wish!
In final news, we decided to let Mia quit going to Kumon for the time being. Emi will still go. Mia is so far ahead for her age in math and reading, but has started to really hate Kumon….so we want to protect a love of learning there. We may pick it up again later, but done for now.
P.S. I often read these super mom type blogs….and please, please…tell me these ladies are neglecting something in their lives! I have so much admin stuff I am behind on! Passport apps, insurance claims, a wedding gift to buy when the event is already over!! the list just keeps going!! Also, doing a massive decluttering and it feels like I will never be done. Maybe easier once my kids are school age? I just keep thinking….need to work harder!!
