And suddenly he is such a big boy too! Our Sawyer-bean starts his second year in the sweet infant room at Montessori and will transition to toddler in just a few months. He loves school like his brother, enjoys his friends (by giving them hugs and kisses), climbs as high as his teachers will allow him, and especially enjoys eating the spines off of all the classroom books (because he already ate the ones at home). He is delightfully silly and sweet as honey, but he will wear you out! Love you #sawyerlukeallen

This big boy’s first day of school, 2nd year in Primary at Montessori. He loves school, is excited to see his friends, says he wants to be a fireman, and is looking forward to learning to “read more words”. He is an absolute delight to this mama’s heart and we are all looking forward to a great year in Room 3. #beckettjamesallen

Probably one of my favorite days ever! Drove up to Hendersonville to experience 2 min 34 seconds of goose bump inducing totality that went way too fast. Gasps and cheers and the sound of crickets surrounded us as the sky went dark as nighttime. The corona of the sun was brilliant and fiery, illuminating the mountainous moon in its wake. My mind was wild with where to look and how to fully experience the sensations. No doubt, we will all remember these moments and this day together! #beckettjamesallen

He cut and pasted and wrote a letter. He wrote her name on the envelope and sealed it up. He counted out change to buy a stamp. He asked the post office worker for the stamp with flowers on it. Handed over the change. Stuck on the stamp. Even got to cancel his own stamp with the special stamper. He walked out proud. “I used my money to buy my first stamp. I mailed my first letter!” #proud #lovenote #beckettjamesallen

One more mayfield meet-up! Met Courtney and her fiancé at The Little Goat for a delicious lunch on our way out of town. Can’t wait to come back for their wedding (sans 👦🏼👶🏻) in October! #thetwobrothersallen

Only the best friends make up beds for you and feed you and play with your kids for a quick 10 hour stopover. Only the best friends make you feel like family whenever you’re with them. Love these sweet ones @mbogdanor #beckettjamesallen
