Let's talk...SCHOOL DAYS

I am linking up with Erika, and Andrea today talking about SCHOOL DAYS. To be honest I don't want to even hear the word school much less post about it. ;( This mama's heart is NOT ready for school to start. Wyatt starts the big Kindergarten this year and Sloane will be in Pre-K. Where does the time go?!?!!? Don't worry, I know not to blink or they will be in high school. #lordhelpme

I have already been reading some of the other blogs that linked up and I am loving all the fun activities and outlooks other mama's have about school starting back. Andrea posted, "instead of focusing on what we're all going to miss we like to focus on all the fun and exciting things coming up." While this is WAY easier said than done I think I am going to make this my motto for the next few weeks. 

This is the first year Wyatt has to wear uniforms. #prayforme I am hoping this works for the best. The practice run I had to break the news he has to tuck in his shirt and wear a belt was a little ;/ We are good to go with uniforms and backpack. We still have to purchase some new tennis shoes but then we are ready to go!

Sloane isn't ever lacking in the clothes dept. so she is good to go as well. In preschool and pre-K the school provides a bag they are to carry so we don't need a backpack for Sis. She wasn't really happy about but such is life right!?!?

(I didn't want to retake another picture and this is one I texted to show my SIL the backpack...LOL!)

We waited for Pottery Barn to put their last years designs on sale and Wyatt picked his bag. I went through and took a screen shot of all the ones I thought would be good then let him pick from those. It was guided picking for him. ;) He is going to K half day so we don't need a lunch box. Phew!! Other than the backpack getting lost in the mail and me having to open an investigation with UPS all went well. LOL! I was so nervous it wouldn't ever get here.

Last year we had a super fun back to school dinner and I plan to do the same thing again this year. We had so much fun preparing and partying together. We have asked Wyatt to give us a special place to go and a something/some where to eat before he starts K. He wants to eat crab legs and shrimp with butter and he wants to go to Build-a-Bear and actually build a bear. ;) All things we can totally handle...

I have a few more fun traditions I plan to start this year since he is officially in school now. I am still preparing for those...since I do have a few more weeks right?!!?! ;( 

I can't wait to read more from others mama's and their back to school details!! 


  1. What super cute kids! Good luck this year as your kiddos go to school! :)

  2. Very cute pictures of your kids!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
