We are settling back into daily life after our trip and it feels so wonderful to be home! Each time I’m away from home for more than a few days, I always come back feeling thankful and inspired. It’s like I see things around my home with a fresh set of eyes and an extra thankful heart.
We picked up Niva from her boarding facility on Saturday and brought her and Sadie to a local park to play and it was great to be reunited!
Sadie and I started her homeschool lessons this week and we’re working through this curriculum. We did a few of the lessons over the summer to get a feel for things and we’re loving it as we do her lessons each day now. She’s working on learning the letters of the alphabet and it’s adorable to see her start to recognize them in different places throughout the day!
We have been reading this board book on the alphabet and it really keeps her attention because she gets to slide each page and discover different animals! Speaking of animals and books, we’re also loving this book on ocean creatures (I’m pretty sure I’ve learned a few things from it 😂) and this one about fish.
Sadie and Niva are so happy to be reunited with each other. I just love seeing them together… even if they are mostly up to mischief 😉
I finally got us fully unpacked on Tuesday, but the laundry is another story. It will eventually be folded and put away. Key word: eventually 😆 I think motherhood has taught me to be a bit more okay with unfinished tasks, messes, and chaos.
Alright, I better get going for the day. I have bread to bake and a toddler who will wake up soon with more energy that I can imagine. Before I go, I want to share a photo of the devotion I read this morning. It was a good one!
