It was a joy to witness God's artwork in the sky tonight. While I may love the weather patterns of some seasons (hint: summer ☀️) more than others, I'm so thankful to live in a place where I can step outside and experience the feeling of the change in seasons. And I am equally grateful for all of the seasons and the excitement, adventure, and possibility that each new one brings. #hellofall #octobersky #changingseasons #gratitude #godsartwork #sunset #fourseasons #getoutside

🎶It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween...🎶 ☠️🎃#skeletonlife #halloweentime #myfavoriteholiday
So much fun at Green Hand Farm on this crisp, finally-feels-like-Fall afternoon. We tested out the jump pad, climbed a hay bale tower multiple times, successfully navigated through a legit corn maze, picked pumpkins out of the patch, rode a hayride and a crazy cow train (not pictured), and finished off the evening with S'mores around the fire pit. The fact that I was pulling hay out of Cyrus's hair for hours just means that today was a great day! #hayfordays #longlivetheweekend #fallfestivities #sundayfunday #ilivefordayslikethis #weekendvibes #momlife #farmlife
What better way to kick off October than a trip to the corn maze? My kid clearly has a better sense of direction than I do, because after going in circles for what seemed like an hour, I began to follow his lead, and I'm pretty sure he got us out in 15 minutes. 😆🌽 #cornmaze #fallfun #sundayfunday #momlife #naturalbornleader #greenhandfarmpark

Cyrus and I did a little Halloween art this weekend. I drew a pumpkin, and then he followed suit and drew a little one, but added a face. I told him that pumpkins grow on a vine, so then he wanted to draw one to connect our pumpkins together, because "they are connected together just like me and you are together, Mama." 💛This sweet little boy seriously has my heart forever. #mamasboy #motherandsonbond #connected #pumpkinart #momlife
Being apart from this kid for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, has quickly made me appreciate the time we do get to spend together that much more. As a single mother, this guy has always been my sidekick in life, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Even though he can definitely test me at times, this boy and that smile of his truly light up my days. #mysunshine #cyrussterling #mamasboy #sidekickforlife #nogreaterlove #livingfortheweekend #momlife

After a long week, it's nice to start the weekend off with a date night with my favorite boy, Cyrus. We are slowly, but surely adjusting to the routine of working full time and being in school all day. The one thing that I just haven't gotten used to though, is how much I genuinely miss just hanging out with my kid. So it made my heart happy to spend some quality one-on-one time together tonight. Frozen yogurt, then taking a stroll around town, followed by watching The Lego Ninjago Movie was the perfect Friday night. And yes, I'm that mom who dressed my kid in the shirt (and underwear!) that matches the movie we were seeing! #momlife #imthatmom #iloveatheme #mamaandsontime #tgif #happymamahappyson #datenight #friday #helloweekend #movienight #noplaceidratherbe #imissmysidekick #partnersincrime #legoninjagomovie
I love that not only does he still like to wave to me on each go round of every ride, he like to wave to me very enthusiastically! 👋🏼😄This is our last Busch Gardens trip of the season, so I hope he holds onto that endearing quality for next year! #hiiiii #childhoodinnocence #buschgardens #onelasthurrah #cousins #enjoyingeverylastbitofsummer @elizabethmwilk
Non-routine following Mamas - does this get any easier? Cyrus and I have never been ones to follow a schedule at all, so this whole school thing, coupled with me starting a full-time position, is rough. We have always been free spirited, fly by the seat of our pants kind of people, and routines give me major anxiety. I know this is only day three, so I'm hoping we will adjust, because honestly we are not really loving it so far. As a working mom, I constantly feel rushed throughout the whole day and Cyrus barely has any time to be a kid. Someone please tell me that balance is achievable! #kindergartenlife #workingmomlife #ihateroutines #freespirits #homeschoolingherewecome #howmanydaystilsummer
The feeling of staring out as far out as the eye can see and waiting for that glorious moment that the school bus finally makes its way over the horizon can best be compared to the anticipation a small child must feel on Christmas Eve. #watchingandwaiting #anxietyoverload #homeatlast #firstdayofkindergarten #howmanydaystillsummer #momlife
The good news is, the first thing out of his mouth when he stepped off the bus was: "kindergarten is great!" Talk about instant reassurance! #praisejesus

The many emotions of the first day... I kept a smile on my face all morning, but the tears were flowing once the bus pulled away. 😭It took everything I had not to get in my car and follow the bus and get him off at the next stop! This is heart wrenching, but I know it will get better, and if not, there's always homeschooling! If you need me, I'll just be staring at the clock, counting down the hours until 4:30. 😥#firstdayofschool #firstdayofkindergarten #nkes #kindergartner #breakdownatthebusstop #imthatmom #iwannawatchninjaturtlesnow #momlife
Cyrus and I made a summer bucket list last month, and the only thing we hadn't crossed off the list yet was making s'mores. Well I darn sure wasn't going to let summer end without completing that list! Thank you @elizabethmwilk for providing the fire to make our s'mores dreams come true! 🔥🍫#pleasesummerdontend #labordayweekend #summerbucketlist #smores #indenialthatschoolisstarting #futurehomeschooler #momlife
I'm dying inside knowing my baby is starting kindergarten in just a few short days. Especially when he tells me at orientation that he's not ready and he wants me to homeschool him. I think checking out the playground helped sway him just a tiny bit. I know everyone says it gets easier, but it's hard letting go of the little person who has been by my side and been the center of my world for 5 years. 😥#notready #kindergarten #schooldays #werentyoujustborn #emotionalrollercoaster #futurehomeschooler
Happy 92nd Birthday to my grandma and Cyrus's great-grandma! It is heartwarming to see the loving interaction between the young and the old, and I'm so glad my son is able to know our family's last remaining grandparent. I hope I have the same positive attitude this woman has when I'm in my 90's. She is a humble, yet remarkable woman. 💕 #92yearsyoung #feelingthelove
This is how we're spending our last days of summer. The old SpongeBob fishing pole hasn't let us down yet! #pondfishing #summerdays #countryliving #hesanatural #proudmama #momlife #liveoutside
