Life Is Sweet

Right now, life is busy.

Picking strawberries. (which were delicious, by the way!)

We are preparing to become a family of five, our anxiety is growing as we remember what the sleeplessness of having a newborn entails. We are in the midst of raising support. In the summer, Peter teaches as an adjunct professor at a local university, which means he has three (3!) jobs. Of course, if you include his role with ReachGlobal, I suppose he technically has four  (Not lazy, my hubs!)

Even though life is packed. It is oh so sweet. It’s summer. I love summer for so many reasons– long days, warm (even the uncomfortably hot for this preggo) weather, outdoor concerts, the liveliness of the city,  but most of all I love it because my kids activities come to a screeching halt. I love that there is no preschool!

I love having the long days with them. We have so much fun. Our days are packed with learning, exploring and adventure and I love it. I think they do too.

We are treasuring these final (hopefully) weeks of being a family of four and are looking forward with excitement to our new sweet baby due next month.
