ipod baby

Noah recently discovered Jon's ipod and gets a kick out of putting the earphones up to his ears and dancing.

getting over it

I'm happy to say that I think I'm finally getting over my rut and I'm starting to get used to the idea of fall. The weather started getting cooler and I'm loving the break from the heat. Noah's fall wardrobe is coming together (luckily he didn't grow too much over the summer and we can hang onto some of his summer tees to do some fall layering) and I was able to do a bit of shopping for myself! :) I also purchased a brand new binder and folder for the institute class I'm attending which made me very happy and I'm loving the fact that the playgrounds are empty (free of the crazy camp kids that would trample Noah during the summer).

I also spotted my favorite ice cream vendor yesterday which I probably got a little too excited about... who knows how long he'll be around, but I'll take advantage of it when I see it!

letting go of summer

I think my lack of posts is due to the fact that I knew that as soon as we got back from vacation, summer would be over. I've been trying to hang on to summer for as long as possible for these past 2 weeks. I'm usually ready to jump into fall with no problem, but this year I can't quite seem to get into my fall groove. I'm truly mourning the fact that the pool is closed, the playgrounds have shut off the water features, and my favorite ice cream vendor where I get my daily coco helado fix is nowhere to be found! Perhaps the fact that it's still way too hot in the middle of September is attributing to my fall rut, but I really need to get over it quickly. I've been a perpetual student-type for forever and now that I'm not studying or teaching this year, I feel like I've lost that fall rejuvenation that I've always craved by the end of August.

perhaps purchasing some school supplies and fall clothes will help me get out of my funk... :)
