Back to Reality :)

Y'all - this week has been NUTS!  I am learning so much, but it's also been totally draining.  Today is my last day of training and then I plan on SAVORING my last few days of summer break!

It's been early mornings!!!  (Dave keeps his car clock at 10 minutes fast!)

And there has been lots of Starbucks.  Lots.

While I was at training, Dave was off and he took all three kids with him to Griffin's 15 month check-up.

She weighed in at 23 lb 15 oz (67th percentile) and was 31" long (67th percentile again!).
She got 2 shots, but apparently was more perturbed about her goldfish being finished than she was about the shots :)  A girl after her mama's heart!

Monday night we met some of our besties at the pool for dinner.  It was PERFECT timing since the last thing I wanted to do was cook. :)

Mason was SUPER excited about taking a pic with me - so this is what I ended up with :) Awesome.

Sweet girlies - Griffin was being uncooperative. hahaha

YAY! Friends for the win!

I had missed these crazies and was so glad to spend some family time with them after being gone all day!

 Tuesday morning was another early one - and Little Miss was the only one up to give me snuggles before I left.  So I gave her extra and she promised to share them with her brothers :)

My classroom is FREEZING (which I LOVE!) so I've been layering like CRAZY! Also - I took this pic on my way in to class and didn't realize until now that I still had my sunglasses on. hahaha  Told you it was early!

 Tuesday night we just played, played and played some more and then Dave took this blurry pic of me and my boys "snuggling" before bed.  hahaha

The kids have been going to Miss Lisa's house - and yesterday morning Dave accomplished an impressive feat.  All three kids up, fed, dressed and to Miss Lias's before 8:30 a.m. WITH a photo-op for mommy :)

I dressed extra comfy for yesterday - 9+ hours in a classroom calls for it :)

Matilda Jane Ruffles (more info tomorrow!!!), Anthropologie top (sold out), white denim jacket and TOMS ballet flats (these aren't my exact pair - but they're super cute and a great color!)  #rufflesfordays

Afternoon Starbucks run.  Told y'all.  Lots of Starbucks :)

Don't forget that tomorrow is Friday Favorites!
