Good morning Ladies! If you are in the United States you will be celebrating Labor day this weekend ! We are staying close to home , This morning we have soccer games for the 3 boys which will run from 9am to 12.30 pm. Then this evening us adults are going on a little date along with My mother-in-law and father -in-law to an escape room ! I have never done this but I am looking forward to it.
Sunday morning is the All Ireland football final which is the equivilant of the super bowl. I like to see it every year.
We are keeping the rest of Sunday and Monday low key in preperation of “Back to School” ! On Wednesday our youngest finished in daycare . After 4 kids and 12 years with our great childminder Lois we are finished going there. He will start preschool on Tuesday.
Also on Wednesday the 3 boys went to stay at their grandparents house for 2 nights! I drove them halfway and did the exchange . It was really weird when I came home , we just said , it is soo quiet ! They came back last night.
Shoutout :- Check out Courtney’s breakfast room remodel and fall transition outfit !

Good afternoon Ladies, I usually write on Saturday mornings but was so busy Yesterday! On Friday we got a new washer dryer as the old washer finally gave up a week earlier. There was some rearranging to do to get the old out and the new ones in. We did get it all hooked up though on Friday night late , so happy! We also were able to fit in a bonfire in the back yard pit along with our neighbor. Saturday at 9 am our youngest had a soccer game , he is 4 and playing in the 5 and under group. He is the tallest but is still figuring out getting the ball and chasing with the other kids! At 10.15 our 6 year old played in the 8u , and he is not the most graceful but tries ! Then at 11.30 was the turn of our 9 yr old to play. He is not the fastest but does his best. so we had 3 and a half hours of it and then it was time for lunch! In the evening we went t o a birthday party for our neighbor Leora who turned 5 during the week. It was a blast for everyone!
This morning after Church we had the annual picnic on the church grounds. It was good food and getting together with people you don’t always get to chat to. There was some amazing desserts for the sweet tooths ( ok I am in the group!!) There were games also for kids of all ages. Our Daughter is at a softball game currently so I have the 3 boys and 2 of their friends.
It is one more week off school for the kids coming up, then back to the grind.
I want to give a shout out to two big events this week! Steph became a Mum/Mom with the birth of her cute new baby boy Bailey !! He is adorable . Equally adorable is Carmen’s new grandchild a baby boy also born during the week . Congratulations to all !

Good morning to you my beautiful followers ! we are over halfway through August and back to school is creeping closer. the kids are looking forward (for the most part!!) to going back and a reunion with their friends .
Our daughter is at an age where she is looking for a new wardrobe for back to school so there was shopping last night! It is nice to get some new items but a line has to be drawn too! As I said before , I would love to see a uniform introduced as I wore when I was in school.
Our boys ( all 3 ) started soccer on Wednesday night for the fall. Our youngest Griffin was playing for the first time and did well if a little distracted. The older two were getting back to it after 2 years away .
They are looking for volunteers and I bit my tongue and offered to help (yikes!!) They have a game this morning (each age level) so I will see if they need me to help.
Our washing machine gave up the ghost on Wednesday and we are using the laundromat for washing and taking the clothes home for drying . We bought a new one but it wont be delivered until Friday coming.
The rest of the weekend is shaping up to be relaxing but we will see!

Good morning Ladies ! Welcome from an overcast and cloudy Minnesota . The weather has cooled a little and is not as humid which I like . Last weekend on Saturday we pretty much stayed home . Then on Sunday afternoon we went to an Irish friends house for an evening barbecue . Their kid s are older than ours but they still had fun! The rest of the week was taken up with a lot of playdates for the kids with their friends .
Last night our friends Jordan and Angie came over for dinner along with their daughter Kayleigh. She is such a sweet girl (age 10) ! Their older daughter Madison is spending the summer with her Grandparents who live 2 hours away so we missed her. We ended the night with a fire and smores.
Back to school mode is still ongoing , the kids found out their teachers for next year yesterday. They seem very happy with the choices!
Today we are taking it easy , and then tomorrow we are hosting the extended family for an end of summer ( yikes, end of summer!!!) get together.

Have a a beautiful weekend, what are you doing ? Take care , Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies! Wow we are into August , the last month of summer already. It is back to school prep month , luckily we have most of the kids supplies purchased already. All 4 kid s will be in school for the first time , we will have a 7th grader(yikes!) 4th , 1st and a preschooler ( our baby!!) I think we will have to get some new clothes for the year ahead .
It is a challenge keeping kids happy with clothing and them wanting to look and dress like their friends. I would love if schools adopted a school uniform in our area. I know growing up I had a uniform and even though we were not fans of it (it was a gray shirt/blouse maroon tie and V neck sweater and gray skirt/pants ) as kids but there was no competing in fashion and you knew what you were wearing each morning!
We are having a friend over today with his 3 kids, his wife has to work:( our kids are excited to pair up and play. Tomorrow we are going to a new friends house for a get together and for both families to meet up.
