First Days of School

With our first full week behind us, the new school year is well underway!  The first day of school is always exciting, and this year was even more exciting with the girls. We had gone shopping a couple of weeks earlier to pick our first day of school outfits.

Big A picked this outfit:
Girls Asymmetrical Ruffled Tees | Old Navy
Girls Double-Yoke Skinny Flared Jeans | Old Navy

Jeans and a ruffle top with these cute pink metallic boat shoes

While Little A picked this
Girls Licensed-Character Tiered Dresses

Hello Kitty Dress with these adorable Mary Janes 
SONOMA life + style Mary Janes

The Back to School Fairy also paid us a visit. She brought a bag of goodies, including a new hair bow for each of them.

Zebra hair bow for Big A, polka dotted for Little A. I took some really cute pictures of them on the first day, but unfortunately they can't be published. : (

It’s been different but we are settled into our morning and evening routines. It’s actually kind of fun after all these years to be checking homework, signing papers, and checking agendas.

How has your life been?

It's a stressful time of year for me but I'm trying to hang in there. I need to take the last image to heart and mark those verses in my Bible. Currently sitting on the couch with Mr. P-that should help de-stress me a little. Breathe in, breathe out.
