fancy breakfast, climbing a fallen tree at the park, a new swing, bath bubbles, and so much play outside.

this felt like a long week. between the election, daylight savings, and a lot of sessions, it was really nice to wake up to friday. maggie got to head to the mountains for a special weekend with my parents. jackson, willa, and I are getting some special time. I dropped Jackson and Hudson off at a church middle school event tonight. it was a little surreal and exciting at the same time. it was a lovely day.
Here we are in mid-June! School “officially” ended June 11th for Jackson. We said goodbye to preschool for Maggie with a social-distanced parade in May and then an individual meet-up with her teachers. A lot of feelings for sure. I feel pretty sad about the way preschool ended for Maggie. It’s very strange. It is all very strange. We are still not really going anywhere except for the pool. Thank goodness for the pool, it gives us a sense of normalcy.
Lately, we are about: popsicles, screen time, smoothies, walks (and more walks!), food, new baseball gloves, the pool, yoga, scooters, (finally) using our fire pit, morning snuggles in mommy and daddy’s bed, and coping with our big feelings.
I want to remember what these days are like for us. The peaceful, the contentious, the fun, and the frustrating.
Looking forward to some fun things on the horizon.
despite a….frustrating…start trying to find each other after parking at different parking lots, we had a great time hiking and exploring johnson mills nature preserve the other day with jean and the kids. i really love finding new outdoor spots around durham, and there are so many! when i stop and think about it, woods and water seem to be our favorite escape.
