It's October 3rd

{16 years ago Drake and I declared our "like" for each other on this very day}

It's October 3rd.

"Daddy! Daddy!" they chirp from the backyard, like little birds vying for his attention. They are playing a post dinner game of football, our last ditch effort to wear them out before bed.

It's a comfortable 84 degrees inside our house (insert sarcasm). Will this heat ever let up? I can't remember what it's like to sip my coffee and not sweat. Regardless, October has started off well.

Homeschooling is currently going better than I could have dreamed and we are taking full advantage of our big kid time while Sammy is at school...like exploring our town and taking trips to the library.

We are also taking advantage of how many wine corks we have and incorporating them into our art time (insert some joke about the many benefits of mommy and daddy loving wine).

Despite the weather, glimpses of fall are popping up around our house and Trader Joe's has declared an all out pumpkin revolution in their stores. Today I tried the pumpkin greek yogurt (delicious), tasted the pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds (also good) and good glorious day I purchased these...

My kids had "Crayon Day" at their school to celebrate the end of the first unit. Each grade wore a different color and they got to eat popcorn and watch a science movie (oh the thrills).

We are now at t-minus 35 minutes till bedtime. We have some friends coming over for a glass of wine (the kids need more art supplies) and this weekend promises scorching temps (soccer should be fun). Have a good one folks, it's October 3rd.

  1. First, your dining room does look pretty, tag and all! Love the buffet in there and all the fall decor. Makes me realize its time to break out the minimal fall decor that I have and purchase a couple pumpkins to add some seasonal festivity to our lives. Jules looks just like you in the picture of her holding up her Hotel Neptune poster Lisa. She definitely has some Sammons in her :) I'm loving the frequent blog posts btw! So great. Love you guys xoxo
