Alright everyone! I’m trying something new. What’s New Wednesday is all the fun and sometimes not fun new things that is happening in Our Knight Life! Check out what’s new this week!
What’s New Wednesday:
The biggest and newest thing in our home is that I officially have a kindergartener! K started full-day kinder and after a slightly bumpy first day he seems to love it! I am so sad that he’s not home with me, and I had some pretty intense emotions over his first day. But I know he’s ready to go to school, and I’m looking forward to having some one on one time with Baby D. When he grows up he wants to be an “Airplane Police Officer”. This is the 3rd year in a row he’s wanted to be some type of police officer. There is nothing more I want for him than that his dreams and ambitions come true. That and to stay a little boy a little bit longer, but I don’t think I have to worry about that one!
(Doing his best Optimus Prime impression!)
Before my husband deployed this past week I was able to get into the salon and get a much needed highlight/low-light. I really needed this done. It had been MONTHS since I last got it done, so I had a pretty natural “ombre” look going on. I had my stylist add a lot of low-lights so as to help blend it all together and give me a look that is a lot less maintenance.
Okay, not really, but never ever did I ever think that my blog could lead to me getting to do a TV news segment. I was lucky to be asked to showcase some fun back to school items! You can watch the video here, and enter the giveaway here! I think I got the bug! I’d love to do this again and again!
I love watching my boys do new things. My son has previously played t-ball, but his league was very unorganized so he didn’t really like it. I was surprised when he asked to play again. Turns out he’s too old now for t-ball and is in an actual little league now with coach pitch! Before practice I told him to try his best, and have fun. I explained there wouldn’t be a T and not to be upset if he didn’t hit the ball at first. Turns out I didn’t have to worry so much about that! He hit his first 3 pitches! He’s loving this league, and I’m obsessed with watching him have fun!
You guys! I can’t stop eating this amazing Greek salad. It’s simple. It’s easy to make a lot of it. It’s easy to build a meal around it, and it tastes SO DANG GOOD! Such a simple combination of food and seasoning.
My half marathon training is going pretty good. A few bumps, a lot of “Am I doing this right?” and “Can I really do this?”. What I’m most excited for though is now that it’s starting to cool off a little bit, and K is in school full days, I’m able to run outside! It’s easier in some ways, and harder in others. My miles were certainly slower today than I was expecting, but with a view like this, does that really matter?
I took K to get some frozen yogurt today, and I picked out some watermelon sorbet that I knew I could let D try. It was gluten free, soy free, dairy free, and didn’t seem to have any other glaring ingredients that I’d worry he’d react to, and while I never know what he will react to ever since food trials in April D hasn’t ingested any food. He puts stuff in his mouth and he smooshes it around and spits it out. Or he will accidentally get it to the back of his throat and he gags instead of swallowing. It wasn’t until 2 weeks ago that he even started to swallow water. So I didn’t think he’d want anything to do with it after a taste. I was wrong. He LOVED it. He tried it, scrunched his face up from the cold, opened his eyes wide from the flavor, and then swallowed and laughed. He asked and signed “please” and “more”. Even K was laughing at his reaction. So far no reactions, and this gives me real hope I may be able to try some other foods perhaps even purees again and get him to actually eat them. Everything else aside, isn’t it amazing to watch your child discover food for the first time?
