September was officially the month that nothing got done. Our Whole30 ended up being cut short due to poor planning and a nasty virus, I didn’t complete any of the projects around the house that I wanted to complete, and all my grand plans for blog posts and Teachers Pay Teachers projects just didn’t happen. Despite all of September’s shortcomings, it was a great month. It was my last full month to be home with Jack before going back to work and I made sure to savor every minute of it.
Here are some of September’s greatest moments:
Now we are ready to welcome October! This month is going to be super crazy for us.
My maternity leave is ending on October 9th and I will be returning to work full-time, which means that Jack will be starting daycare. I am so extremely anxious about leaving him and about being able to figure out a work/life balance that works for our family. Being a great wife and mom is my first priority, but I also want to be a great teacher, and it is going to be tough to figure out how to balance all those roles.
Here are a few things we are looking forward to this month:
- Joining our local gym (I went to a class to test it out last Wednesday and am STILL sore.)
- Learning about the Paleo diet and trying some new, healthy recipes
- Jack’s first trip to the Pumpkin Patch and his first Halloween
- Pumpkin Spice Everything
- Alabama Football

I hope you have a great month! Make sure to check back to see what we’re up to throughout the month!
