Is this thing on? Is anyone still out there?

Goodness it's been a crazy couple of weeks. I swear I say this EVERY post (sorry for that), but it really has been. I feel like now that it's summer (or almost summer), I can finally catch up on life and share some pictures of what we've been up to. Though "summer" doesn't really mean anything different for us around here as Mason is still in preschool and Seth and I are still working, we have a big gap between my last work event and next work event, so I can take some time off, catch up on life and unpacking, and just get organized before my baby starts kindergarten (cue the crying!) in August. Though he did REALLY well with the move to the new house, we've really been talking up the new school so it's not a surprise to him come August. Luckily it's just down the street and we drive by it often, so when we ask "what's that?", he now says "my new school!" with excitement. Hoping the transition is easier on him that it is on me!

Remember my post back in January about "doing less more often"? Well, I've partly done that. I've definitely stressed less about the blog and let it fall way, wayyyyyy to the bottom of the to-do list way more often than I used to. I feel bad, but I know that it's the right thing to do. Sorry, friends, for all the posts I missed reading, commented on weeks later, and comments I responded to days after you left them for me. I guess it's just this season of life, but wow. I'm exhausted.

I'm not going to make this too long today, but I just wanted to pop in and say, YES! I am still here. And YES! I am still blogging.

For now.

I'm not sure what will come once big kid school officially starts in a couple months, but we will see.

For now, know there are more posts about autism coming (yes, the ones I planned to share in April), posts about our move, posts about activities we've been doing, and just overall updates.

But for today, I leave you with a few photos from the weekend because it was entirely too short, per the usual.

Who votes for 5 day weekends and 2 day work weeks? (insert hand raised here!)


  1. So happy to see you pop up in my feed. I understand what you are feeling because I'm the same way. Love the photos from your weekend!!

  2. Well Disneyland should always trump blogging, so I'll say you are winning there. And yay for Mason being excited about his new school!

  3. I feel you, friend! It’s been crazy for a lot of us. Mason is going to ROCK Kindergarten! I just know it. You capture the best photos of your little guy!

  4. Disneyland and Target pictures are always my favorite! :)

    Don't feel bad about the blog taking the back burner once in awhile. I just love that we have social media to keep up with each other when blogging is just too much!

  5. Never apologize for doing what you feel is the right thing to do girl. I am proud of you for not forcing things to work that just don't. I've been doing more of that lately and it feels so dang good.

  6. You can take all the breaks you want, Lizzie Lou. I mean... this is your blog. You can call the shots.

  7. Cutting back on bloggingwhen Kinsey started school and I returned to work (and then became pregnant lol) was the best decision I ever made! The freedom alone was exhilarating. Whenever you do post though it sure makes me happy!

  8. I love the pic of Mason in his glasses with the blue wall!!
    That's so great you guys are close to his school and he's getting so excited about it. Kids are resilient and I'm sure he will blow you away with how well he does (I keep telling myself that too as we approach kinder..).

  9. Cutting back blogging is totally a-okay! I've been cutting back too! Love seeing cute pics of Mason!

  10. I'm right there with you! I pretty much could've written what you wrote, word for word. I'm a lot less stressed about blogging now too - it's kinda awesome :) Love the Disneyland pictures!!

  11. I'm raising my hand!! But I'll only agree to the 5-day weekends when Scott is home for good. HA!
    I'm so with you on the blogging bit. I just kind of pop in when I can. It's so low on my priority list, and I hope that doesn't offend anyone. But, there are just not enough hours!
    Seeing all those Disney pics remind me... We haven't set a Disney date yet. When is this happening??
