five on friday – back to school edition

{one}

The boys are required to use large canvas tote bags from the school as their bag.  Over the summer, the thought popped in my mind to handprint (or footprint for wyatt) the back of their bags at the beginning and end of each school year and when they graduate from pre-k into elementary school I will be able to use these bags with their handprints of growth to store some of my favorite childhood memories of theirs (art work, outfits, etc).  I am kinda bummed that I didn’t think of this idea sooner when Corbin was first starting school, but better late than never! ( mom confession – I couldn’t find Wyatt’s bag until the day before school started hence the name written with sharpie.)

I am going to make this school year less frantic and more happy smooth for everybody involved.  I am going to make a conscious effort to pack lunches and prepare bags the night before school.

I ordered these laces off of amazon for Corbin’s sneakers and they are lifesavers.  Gone are the days of forever untied shoe laces.  Of course when he is old enough to do the tying we will convert back but for now these are a lifesaver (and time saver!)

My pre-school moms group met again today for the time this year and it was oh so good for my soul.  I treasure these two Fridays a month of mom time.

Corbin rocked his first day of school.  He hopped out at carpool and didn’t shed a tear.  Wyatt, however, cried all day.  Bless his poor sweet self.  It broke my heart when I heard that but I have faith that he will adjust and it is good for both of us.  On my first kid free day I met a dear friend for breakfast and celebrated a new venture in her life and my kid free-ness with martinis, queso and breakfast tacos ( yes, I made an expiation for my September spending freeze – our schedules never match up and we were celebrating life!).  It was the perfect combo and the perfect date!  I then went to pilates and took a nap.  Perfect day?  YES!
