Our Full Plate on Instagram

 Someone is excited for his new school! I had a tough day at work yesterday, but I am trying to stay positive and grounded. I am trying not to stress out and worry about the things I cannot control in the FUTURE and just be appreciative of what I have TODAY. Can't believe my Dylan is so big. After his tube surgery a month ago, he has been the happiest and cuddliest little guy EVER. He is also talking up a storm. What happened to my baby?! #mybabyisnotababyanymore #socute #mybaby #family #priorities #staypositive #backtoschool #firstdayofschool #boymom #momof3boys #ourfullplate
 How amazing is this?! Sometimes we all need a little encouragement. I received a special email today reminding me of the importance of work life balance and it was all I needed to keep myself on track and it forced me to value the things that are important to me. My career AND my family are important because without my family I could not be successful at the workplace. I paid it forward and sent a note to someone I care about.

 Another first day school picture but this time for my sweet Julian who if it was up to him he would skip Pre-K altogether and go right to Kindergarten. Julian is an active little guy who works so hard and never accepts the first no. He is also quite the ham and has a smile that will melt your heart. We are so proud of him and looking forward to a great year. #lovehim #myminime #hardworker #mindofhisown #chooseshisownclothes #soccerboy #bigboy #prek #firstdayofschool #backtoschool #atx #austin #texas #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 First day of school for this BIG first grader who is already annoyed with his Mom who takes 100 pictures. I love how fit our community is because we were able to all bike together in the 'hood to school. I apologize in advance for all the obligatory first day school pics I will be sharing because we have staggered start for all these kids this week. #school #education #brykerwoods #firstdayofschool #bigboy #tocoolforschool #atx #austin #texas #family #biketrain #ourfullplate
