Wow, I really haven't blogged much at all lately. Partially because we've been so busy getting into the groove of this whole school thing, and partially because I'm exhausted. Amelia has had a wonderful time in school thus far. She absolutely loves it. Everything about it. I thought the adjustment into a set schedule would be tough, but she's handled it like a champ. She's never had a set bedtime so I often find myself wondering what to do once she's asleep. I've never been one to need "me time" and would rather just hang out with her, and I'm a little sad that she's gone all of the time. I'm sure once the excitement of this change has settled down a bit I will be able to accomplish more of the things I want to do during the day. Here are a few photos of what we've been up to lately. While looking through my phone pics to find some to share I only found one of Mark... wearing a woman's tank top as a wife beater, and I'm pretty sure he'd hate my sharing it. So, you get Amelia and I instead.
We had a garage sale this past weekend... which was a total bust. Amelia made more money at her lemonade stand than we did selling our old crap. She's the cutest though!

Amelia groans a lot when I ask to take her picture... but not in her uniform. She loves plaid and asks me to take her picture before school. 

Our friends had a baby in June and we celebrated her this weekend at a potluck. She is such a sweet little thing. This is a photo we snapped on our way there. 

This is Amelia on the way home from school. All day kindergarten just wipes a little girl out. 

Let me just tell you... making lunch for an incredibly picky vegetarian in a nut-free classroom is really difficult. This definitely warrants it's own future post. 

I tried out some new makeup this week and fell in love. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week. My agenda consists of driving Amelia to and from school (30 minutes away), invoicing and ordering for my children's boutique, editing photo sessions, donating/selling the rest of our stuff and making decor/planning/preparing for my sister's bridal shower that I'm hosting. I can't believe how busy life is at this moment. I think I need a drink!
