It’s that time of year again, back to school. This is my last year only sending one of my girls off to school. Next year my bouncy, spunky, middle daughter will be joining her big sister as she enters kindergarten. Back to this year….Elly is starting 1st grade. She will be going to a new school as we are moving 3 days before school starts. I must say how incredibly proud of Elly I am. I was so afraid of moving to a different town and putting Elly in a different school because she’s shy and quiet. All I could think of was dropping her off and her being scared, crying and not wanting to go to school. But to my surprise Elly has assured me that she is excited to start a new school year at a different school, with a new teacher and lots of new friends. It set my mommy heart at ease, making one less thing for me to be stressing out about with our big move.
Along with the endless packing of boxes (then repacking them after Harper pulls everything out), organizing, throwing out old things, take-out runs, and keeping up with regular house things….we are doing some back to school shopping. I thought I would throw a list together of some supplies that I thought were cute and functional. Heart Lunchbox, Anchor Hair Ties, Scarf, Bentgo Box, Back Pack, Life Factory Water-bottle
Along with school we gave Elly the choice of playing soccer this fall. Last year she was to nervous to play any sports but this year she jumped at the chance! We’re so excited to see her blonde, curly, little ponytail bouncing across the field. I think this shirt in quite appropriate for me now…. For now we will enjoy the last week of summer. Although I will be full of packing I’m going to try and fit in a few fun things for the girls. Sometimes getting them out of the house keeps us all sane. So here’s to the last lick of summer!
