SEPTEMBER CALENDER, HIGHLIGHTS AND PHOTOS
Hope you are all doing well! I know I promised you the September Calendar a few days ago but 'baby' has gotten in the way! I don't know where the time goes, but the day seems to fly by! Today we had a doctors appointment for baby Claire, gymnastics for Emelia, naps and a play date! I thought running the store was hard - it's nothing compared to taking care of two little ones! Now I know why we don't have kids at our age - it is EXHAUSTING!!
