Happy October!

We're one day into October and I must say, I'm not hating it. The weather is A++. I used to have a teacher who would give ++'s, which if it's a B++, shouldn't it just be an A-?

Anyway, yesterday it was in the 90s. A step outside and it hits you in the face and you're immediately sweating type of day.  There were heat warnings and temps were 25-30 degrees above normal.  The kids played in the hose and water table. I loved it.  Today's supposed to be more of the same.  In a few days we'll have in regular Fall weather and all the pumpkin and scarf fanatics will be in heaven while I'm trying to squeeze into the jeans I own. Ugh.

I just finished The Bookish Life of Nina Hill.  Loved it.  Now moving on to When We Believed in Mermaids.

I'm also re-watching The Great British Baking Show. A new episode is released every Friday so I'm watching those too, but in between I'm re-watching the old episodes.  This show speaks to me. 

Enough about my love for warm weather and reading, little update on the kiddos...

Monkey is loving school. She's worried she'll be late every morning and is thriving in her class.  She goes to an enrichment class once a week.  She calls it "art class" since they are doing a unit on art. It wasn't until after we talked to her teacher that we realized it wasn't actually the classes art class. We like to avoid the helicopter parenting when at all possible ;)

GMac has started pre-school and has a love hate relationship with it. I think he secretly loves it and he seems to know all the kids and parents there. We're working on learning letters. Once we master them all we're going to the airport to watch planes land (poor kid doesn't get to actually fly anywhere). He's super excited to decorate for Halloween and would just love for us to get one of those tacky yard inflatables...

Dex spends his time climbing up on our kitchen chairs (they are the raised ones) and saying all the words he can. His current favorites are "WHAT?" whenever we call him and "Up high!" for a high-five. 

Ya'll can get back to your pumpkin spice lattes, we're going to enjoy one (or two) more days of summer.
