O N E – Labor Day Weekend Recap
I was really late getting my weekend post up this week, so I thought I would mention it here in case anyone missed it. We had the best weekend in Atlanta at the Georgia game, spending time with family, and eating good food. I even got to meet someone famous. ;o) You can see the recap (and the picture of me fangirling with my famous peep) here.
T W O – 8 Months Strong Not Repeating an Exact Outfit
If you’ve been visiting my little space on the internet for a while then you already know about my clothes challenge for 2016. If you’re new here, then this is for you! I decided to challenge myself to try to wear a different outfit every single day for this entire year. Now, I obviously don’t have 365 shirts and 365 pairs of pants/shorts/skirts, so what that means is that I can repeat any article of clothing however many times I want as long as I pair it with different stuff. It’s all about the mixing and matching and accessorizing with different shoes, jewelry, belts, and scarves. So far I’m eight months strong with only four months to go! I recapped August earlier this week and that post is here if you want to see it. Links to all of the other monthly recaps are at the bottom of my August recap, and they can also be found on the fashion tab above.
T H R E E – Jacob’s Schoolwork
Jacob is rolling right along in Kindergarten, and believe it or not, Kindergarten means homework four nights a week. Every Monday and Wednesday he has to read for 15 minutes, and then every Tuesday and Thursday he has a homework sheet (usually math) that he has to complete. However, last Thursday, they also incorporated online math homework. They use a specific training website and Jacob has his very own username and password. I just can’t get over that for some reason. Does anyone else find that as funny as I do? He just turned five and he already has his very own username and password for a website. Lol. My oh my, how things have changed since I was in Kindergarten!
But anyhoo, this kid is a BOSS at math. And he gets it from his Daddy… I’ll be the first to admit that math is not my strong suit. Last Friday he had his first math test and he got a 100!! And it wasn’t just a short quiz, y’all… it was four pages long and around 25 questions. SLAY.
F O U R – Puzzles
Aside from Legos, Jacob is also now obsessed with puzzles. He has always loved them, and he’s always been very good at them. For his birthday, we decided it was time to get a puzzle with more pieces as he was flying through the puzzles with only 25 pieces. We graduated him to a 100 piece puzzle of the planets and he loves it. He’s already put it together and taken it apart several times, and he’s getting faster and faster each time. I know what he’ll be getting for Christmas!
And speaking of puzzles, Olivia loves them, too. She loves to play with a wooden United States of America map puzzle that we got for Jacob a couple of years ago. She can do the entire thing by herself now and she even knows some of the states! It’s unbelievable. #WeMakeSmartBabies
F I V E – A Trip to the Dentist
You may have already seen this on Instagram, but J and I had our dental checkups earlier this week, and everything went great! Jacob is now an old pro in the dentist chair, and he loves going. Neither of us had any cavities, so naturally, we went out for ice cream sundaes at Burger King to celebrate! I love my one on one dates with this boy. He is such a joy.
Well friends, we have more fun stuff on tap for this weekend, so I’ll see you all back here on Monday for the recap!! Happy weekend!!
