Love And Summer.

Our summer break is almost over.


Tom will start Pre-K (!!!), and Alice will start preschool (2 days a week) — and also (!!!) — on Thursday.

Oh my goodness you guys, I’m kind of freaking out!

Tom and Alice will be at the same small school Tom has been attending.

But this will be the first year Tom goes all 5 days a week.

And this will be the first time Alice has ever been away from me.


I’m excited for them, because I know they are both ready and will do great.

But I just can’t imagine our new schedule yet.  You know?

So what should I do?

I know!  Let’s talk about how awesome this summer has been!

I still love Instagram and I’ve been trying to tag everything with #loveandsummer.

It’s so neat to see all the daily, fun, summery things we’ve doing!

This has been one of my favorite summers yet!  We’ve gotten to see family, and friends!  We’ve gone to the aquarium and zoo a few times! We’ve eaten ice cream, swam at the pool all day, and played with the hose in our backyard!  It’s just been…the best of days.

I’m so glad we’ve had them together.

Alice designed her own paper dress.

Our sweet friends, Keri and Maggie, have taken us along to Fernbank Museum a couple times — so great!

This is Alice ready to go to the grocery store with me. (Mermaid in the backpack…obviously!)

Ice cream shop stop.

Went to the beach and swimming at Fort Yargo State Park with Rachel and kids.  Super fun day!  (Alice was “cold.”)

We met our buddies at the mall for a fun day of shoving-them-in-the-cubbies-at-Gymboree-so-the-moms-could-shop-a-sale.

We celebrated at birthday parties with friends with choke-holds.

The person in front of me at Starbucks bought my drink!  They were the first ones to do it that day, and I felt super special and paid it forward.  So fun!

Alice had  a tea party and storytime with her friends.

Tom and I.

Grandma took us to see The Little Mermaid Jr. production at Theatre Macon.  Alice LOVED it!  Huge hit.

She spent the whole summer looking gorgeous.

Hope y’all have had/are having a great summer too!

Much LOVEandSUMMER to you!
