Life lately (or, where did August go?)

Life lately. I could hardly tell you what we've done, this past month has flown by even faster than usual and it's been mostly spent preparing for our move as the movers will be here in just a couple of weeks. Eeeeeeeep!

I'm still trying to figure out this strange place we're in right now - it's a kind of limbo land, and I don't like it. Most of Ollie's friends have started kindergarten and as much as I know we made the right decision to withdraw him (he'll start in January in Australia at the same time as his peers and will be among the oldest in the class, as opposed to the youngest here), it's been hard. I'm having to get creative and try to figure out some kind of new routine to keep the boys entertained and myself sane. He's SO ready for school, it's not funny but having one less transition in this period is definitely not a bad thing.

Life lately - there of course have been many (many) photos snapped of our sweet Anneke...

















Craft time with the boys - lately we've done bubble painting, rainbow color explosions (not sure what to call it - vinegar + gel food colouring + baking soda), toothbrush splatter painting and homemade silly putty...




Homemade pizza (Ollie's favourite thing to help make) and movie nights on Saturdays...


Breakfast parties for doggie and teddy....


Plotting mischief...


Park visits...


Making lemonade (I'm going to miss our big ol' lemon tree!)...


Spelling/writing practice...


Endless fun with a giant cardboard box...


Lots of Mixel creating...


A Mixel cake for our big boy turning 5...


Austin's first self portrait...


And last weekend, we took a day off from our never ending to do list and took the boys out for some fun. Mini golf, sushi boat and ice cream - it was a much needed break for ALL of us!






54 sleeps and counting!
