Before and After

The first set of photos are from the weekend before Harvey came to Houston. We had started school, but only for 3 days, and it was still super hot so really we were in summer mode still (especially knowing we would be taking a road trip to see the total eclipse). There was pool time and Preston had a little puzzle date with Grammy per his request...he is so cute!

The kids ended up going to 6 days of school (missing 1 for the eclipse) and then had 11 days cancelled due to the hurricane, finally heading back yesterday, September 11th. We were all very ready for them to go back and to get into our normal routines again. (luckily Ella started swim practice one week earlier than school starting up again which helped our transition)

It was also back to work again for Mike and I on top of continuing to deal with the aftermath of the Harvey as much as we could, but at least the weather was gorgeous.
I am so so thankful for all the donations sent through the Amazon wishlist! We have been able to help SO many families get back on their feet again! It has been so fun to be a part of it all!

And Ella gets to show off all her amazing accomplishments now that Nana got her new patches sewn on her new bag!

It has been an interesting feeling trying to get back into our normal routines this week while knowing that for so, so many their lives are still upside down. Not to mention the fact that Florida and many of the Eastern Caribbean islands are now dealing with their own devastation from hurricane Irma. Hopefully mother nature will chill out for awhile now so we can all do our best to continue the healing and rebuilding process. In the mean time, thank heavens the kids are back in school all day ;-)!
