What we’ve been up to!

Wow, August already! How are you all doing? Have you enjoyed your summer so far? I am amazed at how quickly the time has flown by.
As I am sitting here getting ready to post about our Monday’s Montessori Moment, I am overcome with emotions.
I just had to go back and read this post about the foundation of a child-friendly home. The part about “do as I do, not as I say” really had me reflecting on myself and how it affects my girls!

Am I the only mom who feels as though my little girls are growing up at lightening speeds? Maybe it is because:

  • our oldest daughter is starting Kindergarten this fall
  • I will be starting the Montessori lessons with our youngest who just turned 2 (wasn’t she just born yesterday?…sniff, sniff) 
  • I just started my new work from home job (part-time)
  • I will be reaching a new milestone this month – turning the big 30!
Who knows what it really is, but it has given me time to reflect on my life. I am so blessed and have so much to be truly thankful for! I just want to soak up every single moment and treasure it forever! 
Ok, enough rambling I suppose! How about I just share some pictures from our week! Look at all the FUN we’ve been up too!

Baking Yummy Cookies & Blueberry Pie!
Swimming while mommy & daddy put up our feet and relaxed!

Working with the new dressing dolls.

Object sorting:

Other Fun:
And the girls especially loved this practical life work…

  1. Looks like and sounds like your summer has been going fantastic so far!!

    I love all the pictures. I remember doing the elastic on the pegs thing when I was younger. I loved it!

    I'm soooo happy to finally be able to see the links and that you added Inlinkz. AWESOME!!! I still have to add your link to my Insects Collection post. I'll be away from my desk all day long {hehe}. I promise I'll do it tonight.
    PS: Love the doll rolls and the picture where your feet are up, too.

    Alex, Our 4 year old sure loves that activity! It keeps her busy for extended periods of time!

    2 Pequenos Traviesos, I am SO happy you can link-up now too! I had been using Inlinkz for a while on my giveaway link-ups so I thought I would use it here too!
    The "Dress to nest dolls" are from Constructive Playthings

    cookies, dressing dolls, poolside fun, geoboards, language objects…looks great!
    Wish we were there or that you were here.
    Happy Monday!

    The temps have already been a little cooler here lately but it is sad (yet exciting) to see all the back to school sales. Summer literally flew by but I LOVED every minute of it! Came over from picketfence blogs!

  6. You guys have been busy! I need to get out the scrub brushes and water, too, but it's been so hot here! The dressing dolls are fabulous!

  7. Looks like such a fun week! My boys love to clean things with sponges too. Thanks for linking up to Montessori Monday! Would you mind placing either my button or a link back to my blog in your post so that your readers can follow to see the other lessons posted? Thanks. :)
