things lately


(Saturday at Tia and Marquis's wedding in SPFD)

Life lately has been busy and out of routine but still good. I am a planner at heart, so I am of course eager for routine and more normalcy. We've intentionally given our family some grace in this area because summer and because our crazy past four months, but we're looking forward to getting back into a routine this fall.

Some of our routine goals for the fall include:

  • Getting Miss Rosie back to her regularly scheduled bedtime program (bedtime before 9pm [you don't even want to know what time she's getting into bed now] and sleeping full nights in HER bed)
  • Meal planning Sundays and grocery shopping Mondays [a pre-Lindie routine Eliza and I once had]. (Can you believe I still have yet to grocery shop with the two girls?! I haven't been to Aldi since the Monday before Lindie was born. Don't pity me though- I've definitely been milking Walmart Grocery Pickup and Trader Joes in the meantime and it's been reaaaal nice. Our budget will be ready to go back to Aldi shopping soon).
  • Preschool! Starting this fall I plan to start at home preschool with Eliza 2 days a week. Nothing major, just working through a lesson book to learn the alphabet and numbers and work on reading.
  • Dance. One of the things I am most excited about this year is Eliza's dance class. The girl looooves to sing and dance all the time, especially when her favorite movies are on singing their songs (Frozen, Tangled, Moana, Trolls). Over the summer we enrolled her in a week-long dance class as a trial run and she loved it. So, starting this fall she will be doing dance one day a week from August to May. I am excited to watch her learn more in dance and I am SUPER excited about those recitals in our future. OMG. Heart eyes.
  • Quiet time. One thing that has been really lacking in this season is my alone time (something I desperately need) and time with Jesus (something I even more desperately need). Usually I pair these things. I'm still trying to figure out what this looks like, but its probably going to mean going to bed early and getting up early (something that used to be easy for me, but now is super hard). Still working on what that looks like.
We've still got a few weeks of summer though. So I'll keep milking it a few weeks longer...
