Now that summer is over we are in school mode around here.
A few weeks ago Sarah started her first day of 1st grade!
We took our traditional first day of school photos.
The night before school we had everything set up and ready to go.
Sarah got a new backpack and lunch box from here and Jacob is using his backpack set he received from Aunt Pam.It turns out her friend, Maya has the same backpack!
I took the kids one day after nap for a little back to school clothing trip at Target. Sarah picked out this shirt and these shorts.
Jacob got this shirt and these shorts.
A few weeks later, Jacob started his first day of Toddler Two’s! Big sis wanted to join the photo shoot.Following in big sister, Sarah’s footsteps I will be dropping Jacob off one day and attending school with him the other day.
Between the photo shoot and first day of school madness I forgot my bag, wallet and our waters on the counter, so we made a quick stop at Starbucks (thank you Starbucks app!) and picked up some water (and coffee of course) on our way in.2013 vs 2017
Hoping Sarah has a successful and educational year in school while I hope Jacob learns that mama comes back and it’s going to be ok.

Last week was Sarah’s last day of Kindergarten!
Every year on the first day of school and the last day of school, I take a photo of Sarah.It is so fun to see changes and this year there were a lot of noticeable physical changes.
She lost her “baby” cheeks, her hair has gotten longer and less curly.
Another huge difference is her glasses. We found out mid year she failed her eye exam at school. We cleared it with our optometrist who said she has a stigmatism.
She also lost her first tooth and another 2.5 teeth (her 4th tooth came out a couple days after school). Not only did Sarah physically grow, but she can now read a book, do simple addition and subtraction and can count to 100.
Her fall picture came out super sweet. Just like preschool, Sarah made friends with a sweet group of girls. We played together at birthday parties, got together for play dates and much more. After noticing the other moms coming in to volunteer, Sarah begged hubby and I to volunteer too. But between hubby’s work load and having a one year old, we weren’t as available. However, towards the end of the year we figured out a day where I can volunteer. During my visits she expressed how excited she was that I was there. Love my girl! Goodbye kindergarten, hello 1st grade!
