Having three boys back-to-back-to-back, I assumed they would each be very similar since they were so close in age. Boy was I wrong. It didn’t take long to notice their uniqueness and differences in personalities.

It was one thing I never thought would be so difficult. Something I never thought would be so emotional.  I never thought it would be a struggle at all. It was a day that I so conveniently procrastinated with countless excuses. Letting go of outgrown baby items is hard.

As you may have noticed by now, I am pretty big on routines and schedules. My kids know at what time we eat lunch, have quiet time, start bedtime routines, etc. Some routines are definitely more enjoyable for all of us. A few of the kids’ routines need more assistance and persuasion than others.

School’s been in session for a month now. Well, for my oldest at least. 1st grade has been just as awesome as Kindergarten and we have finally gotten back into the groove of school day routines. Most mornings are filled with running around trying to get the kids ready, fed and packing a lunch for Ethan to take to school.

School is in session, our calendars are filling up quickly and the days aren’t getting any longer. Ethan has been in school for almost 2 weeks now and I can tell this year is going to be busier than ever. Not just school activities or work-related events; Our fun-filled family days aren’t slowing down anytime soon.

One thing we started doing more this summer was going to the local library. I was always hesitant to take the boys, since they are younger and have a hard time keeping their voices down. I found out that our library has a section just for kids with a play area and they offer a children’s summer reading program. The program just ended last week, but I decided to do more at home to encourage the kids to read and build our personal library.
