Sadie and I went on a little coffee date at Starbucks the other day after running some errands for my Etsy shop and we hit a big milestone post-pandemic: we sat inside and enjoyed our treats for the first time in over a year. I was so happy when I saw that the tables were opened back up for dining again!
Another milestone? We’re back to in-person story time at the library. So many happy things! I filmed a vlog on the day we hit those little/big milestones and it includes all sorts of randomness, including me getting bit by a small wildlife creature 😂
Jimmy’s dad rode his motorcycle into church last night and Sadie thought that was the coolest. She saw him pull into the parking lot and said “Pappy’s like Moto Pups” (from Paw Patrol 😆).
She even got to sit on the motorcycle after Bible study!
Speaking of Sader Tot, she let me style her hair! All it took was a few mini m&ms as a bribe 😬
I was really excited to see how it turned out, and then I realized that she looks so much older and I kind of wanted to cry! How do kids grow so fast? It’s crazy.
Our little grown-up has been loving worksheets and doing school. I don’t know if it’s because she enjoys the one-on-one focused attention with me, if she genuinely just likes to learn, or a bit of both, but I’ll take it!
We recently finished our 40 weeks of Abeka preschool for 2s and it was amazing to reflect on how much Sadie learned from September through June. She now knows all the colors, shapes, how to count from 1-10, and so much more.
She probably would have learned those things if we hadn’t had a homeschool time each day, but it was a joy to spend that focused learning time with her. Now that it’s summer, I bought a few workbooks to do with her as we feel like it and it has been fun to see her get better at tracing and recognizing numbers and letters.
Of course, lots of baking has been happening around here, too.
I whipped up some chocolate chip cookies the other night and froze a few balls of cookie dough because I love eating a ball or two of cookie dough every
now and then day. They’re also great fresh from the oven!
Have you ever rode a motorcycle? (I’m terrified of ’em!)
Have you hit any little/big milestones lately?
