📚 Tis’ the season for back to school 👋🏻 I don’t do CrossFit, but I do carry both my toddlers around at the same time while one wears a backpack filled with toys and other random nonsense a 3 year old needs for preschool and that’s gotta be the same thing, right? 🙄🤦🏻♀️ also, I’m totally fine with how extra it is that we’re all matching, @krista.horton is my inspo 🤷🏻♀️ Be sure to check out these inspiring mamas and share some back to school tips and tricks in the comments so we can all get to know each other! 👇🏻 @thiscloselittlefamily

Ellie’s Preschool doesn’t start for two more weeks and we are soaking in every last minute of uninterrupted time with our sweet girl. Does anyone else feel like Summer flew by?!
Finn & Ellie,
There’s a lot I hope you remember about our life together. I hope you remember dancing in the living room, and sleeping on airplanes, and exploring the woods, and the thousands of times you tried to put grass and dirt in your mouth and I stopped you. I hope you remember the ocean everywhere, mom and dad working on projects they were passionate about, and the sound of new friends talking up late. I hope you remember the sway of you in our backpack as we hiked and the crunch of dirt roads under our tires as we roadtripped. I hope the joy of new experiences doesn’t scare you when you’re older, because you experienced so much new with me in the safety of my arms. And I hope you’ll remember, that joy can be found everywhere. In any city, state, house or car, on an airplane, by the beach, or in the desert. You have the power to choose your life and I hope you choose to brave the new horizons and create new pathways and forge new beginnings. I hope you choose to do the hard things, the right things, the adventurous things. Even if the world doesn’t agree. And I’ll always be here, like I am right this second, ready to bear hug you if you get scared. Because you were MY new thing, and new things are beautiful and easy when you are together. -Mama
One from Switzerland. I’ve never been before & i have to say it was even more beautiful than I had hoped, driving over the top of the alps was both scary and wonderful especially! But actually, spending time beside the lake until the sun sets will be one of my lasting memories.
A fair amount of our holidays involve water. Sea, lakes and rivers, we love them all.
I’m missing the lazy days of holiday this week, throwing ourselves back into the whirlwind of wet floors and back to school soon organisation - work is still a little on hold. Maybe next week.
For now there’s a long weekend to enjoy x
In case you missed it, I posted a what my toddler eats in a day on YouTube yesterday! This is an old picture, but I love it. Serious side eye 👀 What’s your kiddo’s favorite food? Lian’s is currently black olives which I think is so strange 😂
Of all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you.
Auj is getting more and more playful and attached to us, and I'm loving it. Even though the newborn days of sleeping for most of the day anywhere and everywhere are so much easier, I'm excited for this next stage of babyhood, no matter how exhausting it might be.

We came home this weekend from Wisconsin to lots of showings and I’m so grateful it’s been nice outside so we can just go on a walk when someone is inside our home. Yesterday we had a couple showings back to back and there was no way I was going back home in between then to then have to frantically clean the tornado that would surly ensue. It turned out to be a lovely evening at the park and a stop at the library book sale.
How is your weekend going?
