As I sit here in our dining room turned home office with the warm sun coming through the windows, drinking coffee...having two kids has made me learn to enjoy a cup of early morning joe... I reflect.
Our summer has been a breath of fresh air! I would say (hoping to do a post one of these days) that the 3 months prior to summer were probably some of the craziest times we had ever had what with having a baby, selling our house, moving into a friends, going back to work and then moving into our new place, whew! I have absolutely loved playing "house" in my new home! We love every nook and cranny of this abode. We have met many neighbors and have been playing with them both little and big on a weekly basis. I love, love, love the fact that there are little people Ollie's age that live across the street and down the street and in the cul-de-sac (get the picture?!) What an incredible blessing to be able to walk to play and visit and learn about our new friends. The potential amazes me...borrowing an egg, watching each other's kids while you run out for something, and perhaps maybe even a supper exchange...so...glad...we're...here!
I have met so many new friends this summer both in our new hood and...at my new job! Yes, as if we didn't have enough change in our lives I decided to switch schools for this upcoming year. I decided to pack up my things after finishing my 7th year of teaching at Hunter and hang my teacher apron at a new school...Irving Park...teaching a new grade...3rd! I am so excited...the opportunities in all of this are like I said earlier...a breath of fresh air!
Ollie has loved playing in his playroom and exploring...he asked me the other day when we were going back to school, glad to know he enjoys it so much! He's almost figured out how to swim, jumped off the diving board to Matt 4 times in a row last week. And we've figured out that he might be even more extroverted than his mommy! He loves his new neighbors too!
Loving every moment of it...ahhh summer!
