How My November Started

Hello!

You’re probably thinking I must’ve quit life & stayed in Hawaii! Although, I wish I could. I really can’t do that. Cause you know, life. LOL! It’s officially November! Where is time going?! October started out slow and it sped up fairly quickly.

Here are a few quick updates:

  • Skyler and Spencer switched schools and are LOVING it!
  • Spencer’s soccer team is currently UNDEFEATED!
  • Skyler got to play during intermission in the Coyotes vs Hurricanes game (video to come)!
  • I have a Hawaii video that I’m currently editing (will be out soon!)
  • Skyler will be playing in extra hockey games this month! Stoked!
  • Successfully did the 10 year HS reunion!
  • November is officially BIRTHDAY month!

… Ready for the rundown?!

After fall break, Skyler & Spencer switched schools and the curriculum is a lot more challenging but, beneficial for them! Spencer is in first grade and learning the 2nd/3rd-grade material. Skyler is in third grade and learning the 4th/5th-grade material. Spencer is doing fabulous! Acing it and enjoys the challenge. Skyler understands it and just needs tutoring to help him in certain subjects. Otherwise, both boys are loving it, and getting used to the work! I, on the other hand, I need tutoring for all these assignments! LOL!

Spencer’s been KILLING it in soccer! I can’t even explain his demeanor on the field. He is a whole different child on the field vs off! LOL! In a good way, the kid loves the game — and if I let him he would do it all day, every day! He will be doing another season of soccer, but who am I kidding, the kid found his sport. So, I’m sure he will be doing it year round (If I can find a league).

Skyler has been making more strides in hockey! He made several goals during the Yotes game and caught that on video. (Also, editing). I am just an editing minefield right now. I have so many drafts in my folder, that need editing and to be posted. LOL! He has been doing great in his games, a lot of assists and great defense! The boys are finding a great balance between school work and sports. They know the rule, if grades start to slip, sports will be put on hold.

Hawaii is beautiful. Kauai is beautiful. There truly aren’t enough words to describe it. Being there I just felt like there was no care in the world! We plan on going back again next year, except we are bringing the tribe! It’s going to be epic! My Hawaii video is a little over 20 minutes, I’m really trying to trim it down. LOL — so it’s taking a while. We ate a lot, swam a lot, and conquered a lot of fears! It was just breathtaking, I can’t wait to share that video!

Skyler this month will be playing in two other jamborees or hockey events this month! We are so excited as he gets to meet and mingle with other 8U kids! He had a blast getting to play at different venues and loves being able to see his friends outside the rink. My schedule is super packed, but happy kids, happy mom!

I successfully planned and executed the 10-year high school reunion that I was planning for over a year! It turned out great and it was exciting to see familiar faces and can’t wait to plan the 20 years! I plan on hanging out with my former classmates prior to the 20 years! haha!

And, lastly, NOVEMBER!! It’s officially birthday month for half my household! My birthday is tomorrow! 29 and feeling fine! LOL — give me a break, I can’t rhyme right now. But, I’m stoked to be almost 30! Spencer is a week after mine, and a few days later is Ric’s. Then we will be celebrating Kate in December as well as the holidays in-between!

I have a lot of vLog footage that will be up this weekend! Keep an eye out for it!

 

Mahalo,

How My Aunt Celebrated Her 50th Birthday!

Happy September 25th my lovelies! I hope you are all enjoying this last week of SEPTEMBER! (Say What?!) I know, I missed my blog post on Friday (don’t remind me). This weather is my absolute FAVORITE! High 80’s and low of 70’s, its complete perfection!

Last week, we had soccer practice and a hockey game! All went smoothly and the boys are enjoying their sports! My only struggle is keeping a toddler entertained throughout the whole thing! LOL — she really doesn’t pay attention and she cheers regardless! LOL!

Skyler’s team is now undefeated (woot-woot), realistically they’re playing for fun but, low-key the parents are keeping tabs! (ahem – like me ahem). Spencer starts his first soccer game this weekend! And, we are SO excited! LOL

This weekend we also spent with Family for my Aunt’s 50th birthday! It was the cutest to see all the little cousins get together!

How cute is it that the siblings are in matching outfits?! Us Mom’s definitely didn’t plan that! But, we were laughing about it! LOL! The kids always LOVE playing together as they’re all in the same age! Sadly, Kate is the only girl. So, she roughest it up with the boys quite well! When I was younger my cousins and I were really close, so I’m excited to watch them all grow up together!

As always, Uncle Ge-Ar (Jayar) is a fave! Always down to do piggy back rides, or play hide and seek, get candy or just there for carrying a kid around. Crazy how all the boys flocked to him! Love this photo (this was also attempted 1 of like 100).

Kate had a blast and she was dancing up a storm. It was hysterical! I swear if we didn’t pick her up to leave, homegirl would’ve stayed ALL night dancing!

I can’t believe its the last week of September! In exactly 2 weeks, Ric and I will be on the island of Kauai! EEK! So, Ric and I haven’t had a vacation without the kids. If anything we do overnight trips and usually bring 1 kid with us or all 3. We haven’t actually left them alone longer than overnight. So, this will be (terrifying) and exciting. I have complete faith and trust that the kids will have fun at Grandma’s aka Mom! They always do! I am excited to spend time with Ric and just relax and enjoy our week.

Ric and I have not been to Hawaii so we are extremely excited, we chose the most “laid” back island, so we were told. But, we did that on purpose. We aren’t partiers or drinkers, not really into the tourist thing either. We were content with hiking, snorkeling, and just being beach bums. And, eating! Lots of eating!

We are going to start vLogging on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Attempt too at least! Ric told me he didn’t want me working on our trip. Which makes it very hard to do. Haha, work from home struggles!

Anyway’s will update you all Wednesday and will get a video up for you as well!

Hugs,

Pink
