summer is coming to a close. man was it a good one. lots of staying up late, sleeping in, beaching and outdoor movies. it went by too fast and its officially come to a close tonight. the kids start school tomorrow. they are finally all at the same school. hallelujah! elle got in the last day of last year, we were both so excited! her sweet teacher came to the house over summer and met her. everyone is in such a great spot, it feels really good. jacks home with me for one more year then off to kindergarten. that gives me a lump in my throat and knot in my stomach. i can’t imagine not having someone home with me during the day. i love having a buddy.
ivans crazy busy. which is awesome! i’m so proud of him. he’s so good at building a company from the ground up and amazes me every time. i got my real estate license in california over the summer. i still have it in hawaii and now california too! i joined with keller williams and i am so happy i did. the classes and training are some of the best. not to mention my office is great and the people are awesome. real estate and kids are keeping me busy but thats how i like it.
i also joined pta at school and room mom for ava’s class. we had our first meeting last week to kick off the new year. i’m excited to really get in there and get to know everyone. its gonna be a busy year but a real really good one.
we are back to house hunting. our lease is up at the end of this month and we don’t want to re-sign so i’m looking everyday. i jump on mls every morning. the benefit to being a realtor! but the inventory is sooo low. there are so many great cities in california. we are really liking san clemente right now. its got that hawaii vibe. lots of kids and everyone seems to know everyone. sort of a small town feel which is hard to find in a state of almost 40 million people. lots of good food too. i’m staying positive and telling myself whats meant to be will be, because really what else can i do.
our disneyland passed were blacked out for summer and they’re finally back on. that means lots of disney trips. september and october are the best months to go. everyones back to school. the park clears out a bit. we finally went on guardians of the galaxy and oh man it was insane! jack was trembling the whole ride but ended up loving it after we got off and made us ride it again. he hasn’t stopped talking about it since.
fall is right around the corner and i just can’t wait. i love cooler mornings and the holidays coming up. i’m starting to drum up ideas for halloween costumes. jacks into everything star wars and of course the other kids want to be something scary. i wish they would let me dress them. i’ve got some fun family costume ideas, the trouble is getting everyone on board.
