Our Summer–Instagram Style

Instagram has taken over my phone this summer (you can follow me here!). It is a happy takeover though, because without my phone pictures I probably wouldn’t have ANY pictures to show! My phone is just so much lighter and easier to carry around, plus I usually have it everywhere I go. I was looking through all of our summer pictures last night and it seems like it just flew on by! My youngest starts Pre-K tomorrow, so today is officially our LAST day of summer break. Now we get to wake up early and have him off to school by 9am on the weekdays. I would totally be lying if I said A. That I won’t shed a few tears tomorrow and B. That I might be a tad bit excited to only have one boy for 3 hours for five days a week. I can see easier shopping trips in my future. I can also see cranky little boys that will not be used to this new waking up early and going to bed early schedule for the next few weeks. We did a lot of swimming at my parent’s pool. 02480be6a76b11e1abd612313810100a_7 Then a lot of sleeping after long hot days in the sun. eb0f1652ba7711e192e91231381b3d7a_7 My belly grew – (15 weeks here). 5dbc7076acf611e1a39b1231381b7ba1_7 We moved at the end of June. d261f82cbee611e1bf341231380f8a12_7 Painted our new house… the ENTIRE thing! 2db62eb0be2d11e1a9f71231382044a1_7 We had lots of good food. 923b3542c30511e18cf91231380fd29b_7 Celebrated Mason’s 3rd birthday.
