Catching Up

Sometimes I get so behind on blogging that thinking about updating is a daunting task, so I just don't...and then the cycle perpetuates until I haven't updated in like 3 weeks. Being a work at home mom is rough sometimes - I usually feel like I should be doing something I'm not. When I'm playing with Will, I feel like I should be working. When I'm working, I feel like I should be spending time with Will or Greg. I'm really trying to be intentional about scheduling my time this fall, but it's just not working out the way I'd hoped...I way overbooked myself (and if we're being honest, I'm continuing to overbook myself), so my editing is a lot more time consuming than I planned. I'll crawl out of this crazy-hole come December and hopefully have learned my lesson for next fall...which I think I've said for three years in a row now ;)

Anyways, here's what we've been up to in pictures...

We've been doing lots of bouncing! We have two indoor inflatable bounce houses that are pretty close to my house and we frequent them during the week. Now that school is back in session, they're usually pretty empty, so I don't have to worry too much about Will getting crushed by big kids. He absolutely *loves* climbing up the stairs and sliding down the slides at these places by himself. He thoroughly enjoys the time we spend here and at only $5 a visit, it's a great way for him to burn off some energy!

 We took Greg to one in Cedar Park this morning and Will thought that was just the coolest thing ever :) He even got to enjoy his first push-pop! He loved if there was any question he would! He is my child after all ;)

 Now that it's finally not 150° outside (what, I'm not exaggerating that much!), we've been spending lots of time out at parks on playdates. Will has a severe case of PCS. What's PCS, you ask? Well, it's short for Photographer's Child Syndrome. And it means that if anyone in the vicinity is wielding a camera, even if it's just a simple point 'n shoot, Will refuses to look. Pretty much EVER. See photo above...Kate, one of his buddies, smiles sweetly for the camera. And my boy? He refuses. *sigh*

And finally, we've been visiting the Children's Museum quite a bit! And yes, we do spend the entire 3-4 hours we're there playing with the train table, watching the electric train, or talking about trains. My child is absolutely obsessed with trains...and that's perfectly okay with me!

We have done other visit the gym, refuse to eat anything but pizza, hamburger, french fries, and ice cream (the boy), read lots of stories, snuggle while watching Dinosaur Train, Thomas the Train & Super Why (our current favorites), make muffins, and play with the dogs...but unfortunately I have been slacking majorly in the picture-taking department and I have no documentation of those things. I have plans to take him out for some "Yay, it's fall!" pictures soon and hopefully can find time in my crazy busy schedule to edit them and share them :)

...and hopefully that's not 3 weeks from now!
