Despite the back to school grind, I’ve really enjoyed September. The weather has been a nice mix of warm afternoons and cool mornings, and we’ve enjoyed a handful of fun along with the have-to’s.
We’re getting used to our early morning weekend cheer practices as well as our rush out of school to get there weekday ones. Typical September, we were ready early the first few times. At this point we are rolling out of bed just in time to make it.
Friday night is that much sweeter when school is in.
I’ve taken a picture of Sof almost every morning before school. Partly because she looks so cute in all her school clothes, but mostly because I look at those pictures all day and think about how she’s doing.
Even though she’s rockin’ this big girl thing, I still see my baby occasionally:)
This month we celebrated two big birthdays for the Johnson clan. Andy turned the big 4-0, and Audrey celebrated 17!
We went to a local fair on a perfect Saturday. Sof had so many little buddies there!
We were lucky to have a Thursday off one week, so we made our first trip to the cider mill with some neighborhood friends.
Sof had a fun run at her school. There was all sorts of excitement at the bus stop!
Mark and I were headed to Chicago for the weekend so Grandma and Papa had to step in!
Later that night, our very brave neighbors took Sof to a Tigers game.
Papa Curt took Adrienne to a football game.
They were busy all weekend and I’m sure didn’t miss us!
Meanwhile, in Chicago, we were having a grand time sans kids.
Mark and Brian bought a new machine, which felt kind of big cheese-ish.
Maybe this is why I feel so pleased with September? Because I ended it with a kid free weekend in Chicago. Good food, good company, good times! Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?
