My apologies for the lack of photos! I spent the last two weekends out of town, and this one was my first one back for a while! The first weekend in August, I got to travel to Nashville for Stella & Dot’s annual conference, while Papa held down the fort like a champ. The weekend after was a BIG deal – Tj and I went to Tybee Island, GA with 4 good friends for two nights…WITHOUT Atlas!! The amazing Yia Yia stayed home with the kiddo, which was such a treat for all of us. Yia Yia brought SO many fun, creative projects for Atlas, and I know they had a great time together. Having her nearby has been absolutely priceless.
Now we’re getting ready to start at Atlas’ NEW school, Asheville Montessori, this week. Tomorrow night we have a parent meeting, Wednesday morning is a brief orientation, and Thursday is his official first day, though it’s only a half-day. Atlas has a new backpack and lunchbox, AND is officially done with diapers during naptime, so he is ready for big kid school! We are SO excited!!! (His temporary daycare with Erika has been wonderful, though, and it is bittersweet to leave there! We will hopefully be using her intermittently as needed!)
