Back to School

Well, summer has certainly flown by! This summer was full of so much fun but it just went by way too fast, as always. When I was a classroom teacher, I always felt like I blinked and then it was time to go back to school. But truth be told, I love back to school time! As a kid, I enjoyed back to school shopping, the anticipation of a new year, meeting a new teacher, and the smell of a fresh box of crayons. I guess that's why I majored in education when I went to college because I have always loved school! Even as a teacher, I loved going back and getting my classroom ready for a new group of sweet faces. Now, that I am a mother of a child getting ready to enter first grade, I get to enjoy that back to school fun all over again. Speaking of first grade, do I really have a first grader?! Seems like yesterday, she was learning how to walk and in a few days she'll be walking into first grade. The days are long but the years are short.

Julianna always says she's a "fashion girl" like mommy so it's so much fun buying clothes for her because she truly trusts my taste in clothing. She already has enough clothes but I did want to get a few things to freshen up her school wardrobe and I am loving the Cat & Jack line at Target! The pieces in the collection are practical yet fun and are so well made (they even guarantee them for a year)! I also got her a new backpack and lunchbox from Pottery Barn Kids. She chose the glittery leopard print and I am not a bit surprised! She's also wanted a pair of Converse shoes like mine for awhile so I got her a pair and I am now realizing that I will need to finally teach her how to tie her shoes. Haha! I guess it's time to learn!

First grade, here we come!
