Summer Recap

SO, it’s been a while. Like the whole summer and then some. What a summer it has been! I haven’t had a spare moment to catch my breath never mind write a blog (poor excuse…you can make time for anything you want when you put forth even a little bit of effort). I’ve been lazy about it I suppose. Let’s catch up.

Crushing the ice cream cake with a spoon! I’m impressed he knows how to use one of those.
 

  
  Our August is ONE (yes, our Auggie… He has more people that adore him than I do and he’s only been around a year). He’s walking …steps here and there, longer distances everyday. He still doesn’t sleep well (again, my fault), but he’s still the cutest bugger ever. I can’t believe he’s my last. Still trying to stop time, but it’s not working. 

  
 School started. These 3 gone all day. It’s weird and quiet and I think Auggie hates it. He has been fussy and seems to be looking around for the boys all day.

 
First thing Dallas does when he gets home. Doesn’t  he look like a giant here?   

  Tons and tons of baseball all summer: districts, states, regionals, hotels, driving to Winchester, Chelmsford and West Warwick. Wouldn’t change a thing.  Right as baseball came to a close…FOOTBALL began! #Vikings

 
  
Seamy in a fall clinic in South Plymouth. These 3 decided to #represent on day 1. 😁 

    
Does this scream tourist or what?!

    
    
 Started the summer off with a super fun vacation with friends in the Outer Banks. Beautiful. 
  
Seamy had to go to Title 1 summer school. Wonderful experience! I can’t say enough about how much he benefited from the 5 weeks (bonus it kept he and K separated for half the day which saved my sanity and probably my family). 

 Snuggles for us with no one home.  

 What have we been in school like 2 weeks and this one got LICE again! Can you believe it?! Instead of letting him keep his long locks and work through it…we got rid of it. I WILL NOT deal with this again! 

Everyone can freak out now…I said it…lice, lice, lice!! Carry on πŸ˜‰ πŸ›

Anxiety

What are you up to right now? At the beach? Enjoying time with your kiddos? A friend? What am I doing right now? Oh…just sitting on the side of the highway between exits 12 and 13 waiting for the big gray bus to come bombing in. Why you ask? Oh well, because my 11 year old left his baseball bag in his dad’s car in WEYMOUTH and we didn’t figure it out until 12. He’s supposed to be on the bus at 1. I completely freaked and drove up to Weymouth to get the bag. I needed gas (of course) and there is traffic (of course). I knew I wasn’t going to make it back so here I sit. Waiting. Waiting and hoping no one creepy comes up to my window. This has done me in for the day. Finito. 

  

I made the mistake of mentioning to Killian that maybe he could ride his bike and I would run pushing August today…BIG mistake. He won’t let you bail on an idea even if it’s raining.

  
Aug monster was so good. He just pulled his feet up and tucked himself right in, not a drop  on him. Killian and I were soaked.
Seamy goes to summer school. Since we went on vacation right after school got out and he started school the Monday we got back…he doesn’t seem to know the difference. It’s just tough for the bugger to get up at 7 M-Th.

 

Long Days: Baseball and Vacation

Home late last night after along a$$ day of baseball followed up by Peter and I making 40 sandwiches, cutting up a watermelon and re-packing all our bags for today’s long a$$ day of baseball.  We got up at 5:30 to be at the field in Dighton at 8:15. It’s a lot. We have 3 coolers 4 kiddos and a ton of stuff, BUT I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have many, many beach days ahead of me in my lifetime. As they say, the days are long, but the years fly by. 

  
A few vacation memories: 

    
   
That belly of mine needs a tan…and a sugar detox 😁😳   

   
   
    
 No, it’s not a hotel, but a 10+ bedroom bathroom slice of Heaven perfect for the 27 of us. πŸ’•

Last, Last Week

My wonder baby slept in HIS BED from 12-7 Friday night. I am so proud of us!  

 

We then spent the remainder of the day at a baseball field. Morning game for Killian against South Plymouth (sadly, we lost) and afternoon game for Dallas (where again, we sadly lost)…more games to follow. Don’t count us out yet!  Haters gonna hate…that’s all I’m gonna say bout that. 

Dallas and Evan at the Invention Convention. Last big project for school. Is it over yet??

 

β€οΈπŸ’•Father’s Day. We planned on being at the baseball field for the majority of the day, but with the rain…everything got canceled so we had dinner (lobstah and steak) at Nana’s and went for a nice walk; Killian, Peter and Seamus also did a little fishing. It was nice. I also got some packing started. Yay me! 

  

Dallas taking out the trash last week. YESS! Old enough to get working around here more.

 So I had an Ava Anderson party Saturday (insert eye roll here), but no seriously, I learned so much. I used to be a part of the group that didn’t really care…eh, it’s all going to kill us somehow anyways, but now, no! See, I have these boys that I adore and I want to see them grow old and meet my grand babies and be around so they remember me. So I’m going to work harder. I’m going to try to start switching over to safer alternatives whether that be buying stuff or making my own.  I am usually so concerned with what I put in my body, but not on my body (which might be worse).  I learned that the average woman puts 162 chemicals on her body before she leaves the house in the morning. Can you believe that?! 162! Ugh… It’s overwhelming. Peace out homies ✌🏻️
