first grade. first day.

our summer came to a screeching halt this past sunday night and on monday morning, we were thrown back into the world of packing lunches, rushing to get ready in the morning, checking homework folders, car pick up lines and stop light behavior management plans (“were you on green today??”)…

isaac requested that he wear a bow tie for his first day. so, obviously, i made that happen. he picked the fabric and i made a faux bow tie. then, after realizing he’s grown 6 sizes since the last time he dressed up, i hut up megathrift for a 99 cent button down shirt. and we were good to go…

    Of course she’ll fall for the bow tie. Who wouldn’t? Enjoy your downtime before the baby 🙂 It will be chaos, but good chaos for sure!
