It’s hard to believe that another summer has come and gone!
Austyn, who turned FIVE on August 2nd, has begun her final year of preschool! We decided to have her do a repeat year rather than start kindergarten since she has a late birthday.
And Lincoln, my little Buddy Bear/Buddy Doo/Buddy Doodle/whatever overly cute name Austyn and I come up with…well, he is 19 months old now and well into his very first year of preschool! I am just in shock at how fast he has gone from my tiny baby boy to a full-fledged toddler!
Anticipating the start of preschool for my two kiddos definitely came with a mixed bag of feelings. On one hand, I was a bit emotional because 1) it meant that they weren’t going to be around the house as much anymore and 2) it also meant that they were growing up! On the OTHER hand, I was overjoyed because 1) it meant that they weren’t around the house anymore (hahaha) and 2) it meant I could focus on work a little better! Ohhhh the conundrum of being a working mom!
Austyn and Lincoln are both loving their teachers and friends. Of course, Austyn is a vet when it comes to preschool, but Lincoln was completely new to the whole school thing! Fortunately, he’s spent a good bit of time in the care of others (grandparents, church childcare, and gym childcare) that the transition was a piece of cake. During Parent Orientation, the preschool teachers told us that he was one of two kiddos that didn’t cry!
Because OF COURSE Austyn and Lincoln deserve their own blog post with their OWN feature content, here’s a few updates on my Sunshine Girl and my Buddy Bear!
One of the most exciting things that the kids got to experience this summer was our very first family trip to DISNEYWORLD! AHH! I’m definitely a bit behind on posting photos from our amazing trip, but stay tuned for those within the next week or so! Thanks for following along with me and my little family!
