Holiday weekend say heyyyy!
I don’t know what y’all are up to but we are still all-fun all the time here. Critter went to the State Fair, we went to the farmers’ market for the first time as a family of four, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and we attended a pool party. Saturday (fair day) was also accompanied by a skipped nap care of Critter so just your regular reminder that our kids are kids just like yours and our lives are not so idyllic.
This weekend, I have been aggressively working on my professional designation recertification credits. What is super-nice is that you can now fully recertify for the SHRM-SCP (which is the one coming due at the end of the year!) and the SPHR via webinars so all of the credits I do for one right now I can also count for the other.
I may or may not have ordered myself a pair of Sorel booties from Evereve’s Labor Day sale to reward myself with once all of these credits are DONE. On the bright side, by the time I do get through this recertification, it will be bootie season for real.
Critter goes back to “school” this week and I think he would be the first to say that he needs some routine in his life again. Where he goes, the kids stay in classes for the entire school year and then after summer “camp” they move up to the next class, which I think is really nice from a consistency standpoint. I am also really pleased because he will have one of his teachers in this year’s classroom as well. Glitter will have his other teacher when she starts at the end of January.
I still need to write a post about our family trip to Duluth with my in-laws, so stay tuned for that. We had such a lovely time.
Have a happy (bonus) weekend day!
