Back to School

So as many working moms of under 5's can agree, "Back to School" is more of a state of mind than anything - considering Grace goes to school year round. 

It's a fresh start, and a much needed one after the crazy grind of our New England summers. This year, Grace is starting Kindergarten Prep. A program for kids who are too young to go to Kindergarten by regular standards but are ready to learn, not nap, and have their very own pencil boxes.

Opening her Night Before School letter from the Back to School Fairy - complete with glitter to put under her pillow. (From her teacher - not me!)

And the neighborhood is quiet and calm...

One last headlock to tide her over for the day.

Ready to learn! 

Watch the video to find out what Grace is excited to learn!

Live from Vacationland

We're on Day 3 of our York Beach Family vacation. 


We've already had lots of beach time, family dinners, and Matt and I even squeezed in a date night complete with tropical drinks at Stones Throw and lobster from Fox's Lobster House.



The Best Time

Last night my middle school neighbors invited the girls and I to the beach for some evening fun under the full moon. Against my better Working Mom judgement (Matt's on business this week, there were dinners to eat, baths to take, and bedtimes to make) - I said YES and we packed a bag and set off for the beach, arriving at 7pm. You know what? We had the BEST time.




Back to School: But Not.

Let your little one channel summer while back at school with this handy pineapple sweater.

Love!

I am really feeling this iPhone wallpaper right now.

The Curious Case of Unicorn Leggings



It's no secret that Grace loves dressing up. She has a very strong opinion of what she will and will not wear and loves the freedom to get dressed herself. This is the first time all summer I've gotten her to wear something besides a dress. Enter: Unicorn Leggings :)

 I'm just glad we've eliminated the discussion of wearing costumes out of the house.

This shirt is a bit darker, but just like the one I got from J. Crew earlier this summer!

I thought these would make great back to school shoes for my little one starting pre-K in a few weeks.

Did I mention J.Crew is having a sale today?
