well september came and went, didn’t it?

as we step into october and i reflect back on september, i think it was a great month for us

we moved into our new home, we spent time cleaning, doing tons of yard work and slowly settling in

there weren’t many outings but i think we were ok with that

we enjoy spending time in this new home

moving into our new home was not the only big change in september

Lily started school and ballet again and as i look at pictures of her from the beginning of the month compared to the end of the month, well, she changed

a lot

and i feel like she does so more and more every month

her birthday is coming up next month and we gave her a choice of disney world or a party in the backyard with her friends

she chose a party over disney

who does that?

this girl who loves her friends that’s who

happy friday friends

hope you all have a wonderful weekend

ps- Lily got sick with a stomach bug wednesday night, stayed home from school, went to her pediatrician, slept all day yesterday and is doing much better today. she is such a little fighter
