Coming back from vacation was a serious jolt. We came home ON Marin's actual birthday, the 21st....and of course we wished our sweet girl a very happy 8th birthday. I know, can you even believe she is EIGHT?!
I had to jump right back into making dinners after not cooking a single meal or lifting a finger for a whole week. It was harsh, haha!
When you have a little girl, you often find things like this in your house.
And these two started school just a few days later!! After doing a little school shopping and having an eye exam for new glasses, these two were ready to roll. Marin is in third and Owen is in Kindergarten this year. Right?!
And Rosie came to help mama pick some wild plums. She had such a great time, what a cute helper.
She is totally rocking those piggy tails!
Owen was a GREAT plum picker!
And on Saturday, we celebrated the birthday girl! I've told my children that they can have "friend parties" when they turn 5, 8, 12, and 16. So....this year was busy with Owen turning 5 and Marin turning 8. Marin loved her party and then they were off to Cherry Hill for swimming.
She got a tablet...and that's been, ummmm....interesting.
My darling girl. She loves those shoes.
This boy. He is the cutest and funniest boy there is. He also drives me to brink of insanity. I'm not sure how he can do both so well.
It was one busy week after an incredibly relaxing vacation!
