Believe it or not, I am alive and well. Crazy? Yes. Happy? Indeed.

Summer has been wonderful and has completely flown by. School starts back in 3 weeks and I am in complete denial. Kilbi Branch Designs has taken on a life of its own and has become a full time job for me. I am so grateful but so, so busy. Many times lately I have contemplated closing up shop and going back to easy days with my kids. I am constantly reminded that they are only little once and how fast this time goes by. I don't want to miss a moment. I want to soak up every minute of their sweet little life before I blink and they are grown.

We have spent a great deal of of time traveling this summer. My brother is getting married at the end of August so we have spent time at showers and parties. Between that, the beach and the lake, we are in major need of a stay-cation!

I completed my first sprint triathlon a few weeks back and really enjoyed it. My husband and littles were there to cheer me on, along with my parents. It was a really great experience and something I hope to do again. Hint hint... I have been telling my husband it's time for me to invest in a race bike, lol :)!

All the tots are great and thriving. Baker is talking up a storm and chasing his sisters non-stop. Chloe has enjoyed being in camps throughout the summer and Saylor is happy as a clam being at home and playing with me.

Life is good and such a blessing. I am beyond thankful for my husband and the little people I share my home with.

Preschool then and now.

This year has been wonderful for Saylor. She started preschool in the fall in the 18-24 month class, two mornings a week. 

On her first day, I was worried sick. Scared for her. Afraid she wouldn't be happy. And my shy, timid little girl proved me wrong her very first morning. She showed me how brave she was. She was happy. Excited. Chatty. She hugged my neck, gave me a kiss, and walked right in to a new room full of friends. 

She has learned so much this year. I'm quite certain she talks like a 4 year old and some of the things she says are absolutely hilarious. She knows all her colors, numbers, alphabet, tons of songs, Bible stories and prayers. She potty trained herself (yes, herself!) back at Christmas. 

She loves school, her friends and her teachers. Loves to color, draw and sing. She has grown up so much this year. Although still shy and timid (and on the verge of tears during her end of the year program), Mommy is proud of the sweet and feisty little girl you are becoming SaySay.
