first few weeks of school!

I wasn't nervous at all about Mr K heading to grade 1... up until the night before! A flood of emotions overwhelmed me. I was nervous for him! Going to a big kid class and the big kid yard! 

Little K was ready that morning. He was calm and cool, didn't say much but  he seemed way more ready for grade 1 than I was! Haha

Baby M had a hard time at daycare the past week because big brother leaves the room quickly in the mornings after they get dropped off. During the summer they both had summercamp at the same daycare Little K would stay at least a good hour with baby M before going to the big kid class but now Mr K heads over to the big kid morning class right away and baby M caught on to that. :( he's adjusting but it was a hard first week for him! Missing his big brother! 

He looks so big! He had a great first week and another great second week. 

He's enjoying grade 1! He loves his teacher and friends. He's practicing his writing and reading without a fight. He loves drawing ninjas still haha it's the cutest. I've seen so much positive change in him and it's only been 2 weeks. The next stage for him is creeping up. He'll be 6 in a month and a bit. 6! Of course it'll be a ninja birthday :) 

Yes that's a ninja. He's just breaking in his Halloween costume haha. 

  

Our nightly routine (when we start early enough) always includes reading before sleep. Baby M has his book that he repeats "daghoo" aka dog for the paw patrol book. Little K will start with the books that he is familiar with, that are easy for him to read, and I'll read a new book and have them follow along. 


We can't wait to see what else grade 1 brings! Love these little boys so much. 💞

End of summer camping! 

This was our second annual camping trip with the kids. 

We picked a different camp site than last year. This place was an hour and a half away. The car was stuffed with our gear haha!

As soon as we arrived we set up camp! 


I think roasting marshmallows was the kids favorite thing to do. They loved the hammock too! 


The first day was warm and sunny. So we went to the beach! A short drive from the camp site. The sand was fluffy and the water so clear. The view amazing. 


It was so relaxing and the weather was perfect. 

That same night after we went to sleep all cozy in our tent. It rained all night. Which made for a chilly second day. 

Which was ok for this park because there were so many trails for exploring. 

We dressed warm and went for a nice trail walk. 

The kids were so cute walking with their sticks. Their eyes were wide and they were excited walking in nature and learning new things. I learned new things too ha! 


We had fun climbing rocks, and throwing pebbles and making wishes. 


The boys loved this! 


Camping with a toddler wasn't the easier thing. Mr in and out of everthinh kept us on our toes. 


Little K loved helping make the BBQ.


We had a fun, cozy, family time weekend with so much snuggling, 

The last night both kids fell asleep in each of our arms as we sat by the fire. It was so peaceful. Holding the boys so cold as these years go by quick! Mr K begins grade 1 tomorrow!! Baby M is talking so much and wants to be Mr independent. We cherish these times so much! 


Summer 17!
