The last trip of our summer holidays.
Right now we are readying ourselves for school, enjoying the cooler weather,
and getting excited for autumn.
I still have a making July/ August post to come, but other than that your mostly caught up. Right now its our last week of summer I hate to say it but I am so happy, summer exhausts me, minimal alone time, being out numbered, having two very different kids home all day(they go relay style, if its not one its the other), the 5:00 ugly hour, Lets say I would handle it a lot better if i had more breaks to breath instead of "GO GO GO GO!" I love having them both home but both of them want all of me, and I really just can't, they are both still little now, both figuring things out, this year was better than last year and next summer will be even better, parenting is a learning thing and I'm only 7 years in with these two! I'm really looking forward to going into a school year with some consistency, last year I was doing a lot alone, said yes to things i should have said no thank you to and Jake had to work SO much, and he doesn't get over time(just the reward of a job well done!). I suffered so deeply, struggled with depression, just genuinely trying to make everyone happy while my emotional stores were so depleted. I won't go into too many details but I resented so many wonderful people because I didn't give myself rest, I realise this, and I'm working on it. This year will be better.
Autumn is a time or renewal for me, I am ready to embrace the new season!
This is good, because I'm exhausted!
