Greeting from the home front! Day 2 at a SAHM. Here are a few highlights so far:
Bella enjoyed her first visit to the spa (aka a free bath coupon. Thanks Petsmart!) As you can see, Gus was excited about it. Bella? I’ll let you be the judge. 🙂
While she was being bathed we ran errands (Goodwill drop off and a stop to get Karolina’s bangs trimmed). Next, it was lunch and naps. After that, a wonderful run with these two in tow!
The biggest victory was my long-hoped for goal of writing a “Back-to-School” rosary for the kids. I knew it would be time consuming because it meant writing out meditations and tying the prayers into the new school year based on the Joyful Mysteries. I was so grateful when it was complete though and excited to pray the family rosary Monday evening! So much planning goes into gathering the supplies for school but I wanted to also prepare the kids spiritually. Just a small to try and sanctify the eve of a new school year.
And, they’re off!
Looking dapper! Gabriel (on the far left) is starting 8th grade! Um, excuse me, but wasn’t this just yesterday?
We’ve also had our share of lowlights (like my awful attempt to cut Karolina’s hair and Bella marking her territory throughout the downstairs ) but those I chose to not document with photos, this time.:)
This new life has been a refreshing change of pace. Granted, it’s been less than 48 hours and I’m definitely in honeymoon mode, but it’s been nice. Still celebrating sweet sleep! It’s the little things, isn’t it?
