Our Month In 9 Squares – August 2019

Dear August 2019,

August, you were the perfect end to a fabulous summer! One month into school already, August kept us busy! We were able to sneak away for a kid free weekend in the mountains, which was heavenly! And we enjoyed our last month together as a family before the sports season fills up our calendar.  August… We heard you loud and clear, we have so much to be thankful for.

September, we are ready for you! Bring on the busy weekends and football season!

Our Month In 9 Squares – July 2019

Dear July 2019,

Besides the heat of the summer, we had a great month! With our last family trip to the mountains for the 4th, we shared the best red, white and blue family time together!

Back to school is no joke! Between meet the teachers (x2) , first days of school (x2), curriculum nights and back to school parties… We are back in the swing of it all.  Paisley’s first day of second grade, Payton’s first day of pre-k and Kensie’s first day at home with me… Alone! Wow, all I can say is, time is flying! Haha!  And just when I thought nothing else could change, my biggest girl turned 7! What a month July brought.

August, you are already proving to be busy… Here we go!

Our Month In 9 Squares – June 2019

Dear June 2019,

June has been a perfect 1st full month of summer. The girls enjoyed a week of vacation bible school and a week of dance camp and adored both! I am so grateful for fun activities to keep them energized and happy and I love the opportunity to watch them grow in new endeavors.

We were able to sneak away to the mountains for Father’s Day weekend and soak up family time, outdoor adventures and cooler weather… And of course celebrate our favorite daddy!

With the girl’s sports and extra activities on hold for the summer months we have been able to catch up with friends on more double-dates and share in more creative date nights just the two of us. It has been so much fun! This month we snuck in pedicures and Top Golf, and we have enjoyed trying new local restaurants!

Meanwhile, Kensie took her first steps this month and hasn’t stopped walking since. She is a go-getter and wants to get her hands on everything. She is also starting to copy our words and tones and her favorite activity is giving kisses, which we all line up for!

With the month of July ahead, we are excited to celebrate the 4th, check out some fireworks and soak up the last bit of summer break before school starts. The back-to-school countdown is on.

Our Month In 9 Squares – May 2019

Dear May 2019,

Not gonna lie, I LOVED this month! May, you surprised us with being extra awesome! Mother’s Day, Memorial Day Weekend, swim season starting up, end of the school year and all the parties and festivities that go along with it and surprising fabulous AZ weather made this month fabulous!

But, the best part of the month had to be our kid-free Cinco De Mayo weekend getaway in Santa Fe! Delicious food, great company, many margaritas and the traditions of a quaint town made our little trip so memorable! We were so grateful to sneak away, just the two of us!

The hardest part of our month, a teething 13 month old, but hey if that is the worst of it, we can deal with that!

June, you bring our first month of summer break and lots of water fun!

Dear April 2019,

April, oh April, you are my favorite month and you know why! You are filled with beautiful weather, my babies first birthday, and oh yeah… My 34th birthday this year. We had so much fun closing up spring soccer and taking a break from the busy spring sports season. BUT, most importantly April brought gratitude. We are so thankful for Easter – He has risen indeed!

May, I can already tell that you are going to fly by! Looking forward to the end of school and the beginning of summer break. NOT looking forward to the scorching heat around the corner, but oh well, bring on the summer!

Our Month In 9 Squares – March 2019

Dear March 2019,

Spring is in the air & we definitely had an extra SPRING in our step through spring-break! March brought on a month of adventures. From a trip to the mountains and throwing snowballs to a getaway in the Sedona red rocks. But, the true beauty of the month was being able to slow it down and sleep in without rushing off to school. Did I mention I love spring break??!! We spent most of the month focusing in on family, it was so refreshing. We also celebrated Payton’s 4th Birthday with an Elsa-themed Birthday party and we indulged on the most adorable cake ever!

April you are bringing another month of celebrations, so what are we waiting for… Let’s party!!!

Our Month In 9 Squares – February 2019

Dear February 2019,

You were one for the books! We made some of our most cherished memories this month and it was everything we had hoped for and more! We took our first Disneyland family vacation and it was truly a magical trip! Our girls will never forget all of the fun! It was also the best weather ever in AZ, so all I can say is thank you God for the rain and chilly weather. And we can’t forget Valentine’s Day, the holiday I never knew I loved until having daughters! We have way too much fun celebrating all things love in this family! February, although you are a short month, you rocked!

March, we have more fun planned and we are looking forward to it all!

Our Month In 9 Squares – January 2019

Dear January 2019,

Oh hey January! 👋 We kicked you off with a focus on laying low and 2019 goal planning. We spent most of our free time this month playing outside, riding bikes and we started family nights filled with board games and lots of UNO.
Soccer Saturday has started again so we are back to the soccer field and we are all loving it! Payton even scored her first goal ever! 👏 Kensie has two teeth and she is growing up too fast – slow down little love! I was able to sneak away for a family trip in Las Vegas, while Travis held down the fort. I was able to meet up with my little bro, first time seeing him in two years and we did it right, Vegas style!
February is going to be a great month, so for now… ✌January!
