First Day of School

Yay! It's my favorite time of the blogging year! When everyone (even those bloggers who never post anything) post cute photos of their kids on their first days of school. Lydia started KINDERGARTEN this year!!!! And to quote my facebook page....

Now that we are on day 2 of kindergarden I can say one thing. I'm not a home schooling mama. No no no. This is awesome. Lydia is happy and loves the social aspect. I am getting soooooo much more done around the house and when both kids are home, I already feel like I can dedicate more focused time with them. We still have our "learning time", but now someone else is adding to that process...for free! LOVE me some public school.

She picked out her outfit. She seems to have gotten the style gene. If you ever saw any of my elementary school outfits, you would know, she didn't get it from me.

Take a photo of me "on my way"!

And get one of my backpack!
(Got it from Gap Kids. All out of pink, but the other colors are on sale)

So excited!!!

Me too! While Collin was napping I actually had time to organize my pantry AND my "hoarding" shelf. No five year old begging me to play. Cleaning without feeling guilt??? Incredible. 
(Todd, I added this photo just for you, my little OCD clean freak.)

 Collin and I made a little "vlog"
(For the reader who asked if I picked up a Southern accent, you can see for yourself.)

As requested, I put a link list of my favorite "wordy" blogs on my righthand sidebar. Happy reading :)

AND I have a fantastic birthday giveaway coming up so stay tuned!

Aw, Lydia is so adorable! Hope she has a great school year. :) And I love Collin just hanging out next to his big sis, not paying much attention. ;)

I love her style :) My Piper started 1st grade and I had to convince her that her striped leggings and flowered shirt actually matched :) I wish her to be more funky :) I hope that she is enjoying herself and you are enjoying a bit of mama time!
