I haven’t written one of these “true to life” posts in awhile!
Things over here have been extremely busy, but that is nothing new. We are experiencing a lot of change right now – unexpected change, really, as we recently made the tough decision to pull Grayson out of his current preschool and keep him home until Fall. There’s a lot there to talk about, but most of it is personal and not internet worthy. What I can say though is that his current school just wasn’t a good fit for him and we’re looking forward to many cozy days at home this season. What that means in relation to this space is that I may be posting a little less than usual during this busy season we’re in. I’ve always considered my number one job to be a mom and right now I’ve got two boys under four at home with me full time. I’m trying to embrace the change and know it’s just a season. We’re intentionally trying to slow way down over here this year and dig in deep in the season we are in. My hands have never felt fuller, but they are full of good stuff. 🙂
I joined our local YMCA last week and I’m feeling really excited about it! The boys and I have already been a handful of times and they LOVE it. I have yet to actually work out there (hah) but so far, we have really enjoyed the huge indoor kindergym and the pool! Adam and I took the boys swimming the other day and it was so fun! They absolutely loved it – even Luke, who had never been in a pool before. The Berkeley Y is the largest in the country (crazy!) and I think it’s going to be really, really awesome for us. One day I might even get to work out there! haha…but seriously though.
Other than that, not much is new. I still feel like after a year of living in Berkeley, we are still getting used to everything! I’m so glad to live in a place that offers SO MUCH for kids and young families. Our library is fantastic, the Y is great, our regional parks are beautiful and we have a plethora of museums my boys really enjoy. I think there will lots of muddy visits to the park this winter. 😉
