Working' it Wednesday

If you follow me Instagram you probably came here thinking I was posting about our amazing book club yesterday....well that's not the case. That's tomorrow. ;/ I got my days mixed up, lol! Forgive me, it's the end of the summer.

On the second Wednesday of the month I try to participate in Shay and Erika's link up: Workin' It Wednesdays. So far this year I have shared:

Today is...

------Back to School -----

I mean, take a second and look at those sweet faces. Goodness how time flies!! 

PICTURES: As we head back to school we take pictures with our chalkboard. It's such a fun tradition! It's even more fun to look back on the pictures and compare. 

Backpacks: I have always purchased their backpacks from Pottery Barn Kids. I usually do this at the end of the school year when they clearance out the "last year colors." The backpacks come by the end of June and we don't think about it again until the first day of school. It's nice to have that task finished. 

Clothes: Since they are both in the day school this is the first year they both have to wear uniforms. It was pretty easy last year shopping for boy uniforms. A few of these shorts and a few 3 button polo's and we called it a day. Dressing Sloane isn't as easy....I think we are almost finished but phew, it's been a task. She is only allow a specific plaid jumper and/or skort so finding her size was tricky. We pick all the items up from the alterations shop on Friday. Just in time! LOL! 

Shoes: They each get a new pair of tennis shoes to start the school year. Usually Wyatt needs another pair by Christmas. (Holy boys that are hard on shoes) We shall see how Sis's hold up. I was a little late to the game this year in ordering Wyatt's. I am just hoping they are here by the first day. 

Drop off: We drop off the first morning of school as a family. 

Breakfast: After drop off then Mark heads to work and I head to breakfast with friends. It's so encouraging to have a group of mom's as support on that first day...or even the school year for that matter!! 

Dinner: I always try to have some fun dinner a few nights before they go back to school. I have done THIS in the past and am looking forward to it this weekend. I am currently planning this year's Back to School Breakfast (for dinner). 

What about you? What do you do to get ready to go back to school? Link up and share...
