I’m laying here in my hammock looking out at my kids sitting on their back yard picnic table. Their bikes are together in the yard and they’ve had such a fun summer of picnics, swimming, playing with neighborhood kids and play group friends, and at least one out-of-town trip. The summer though is winding down…maybe its only July, but my son starts first grade in less than a week.
Today we walked to his school to see what class he’s in. He was hoping he’d have his best friends in the same class with him, but one of his buds ended up in another class. He was sad about it but he knows he’ll get to see him on the playground and at lunch time. We stopped by the playground to get Jaydon a little more excited about returning to school and to have a little snack and rest before walking back home.
Jaydon had fun remembering things from the last school year and I think the excitement started to build.
He would be a big first grader now!
So I’ve begun the back to school shopping. We got him a new backpack, a new lunch box that works with his lunch blox, because I just love packing him a bento style lunch 😉 and I’ve got labels on their way for all the things I’m gonna have to label from kidecals. I totally recommend them for all your labeling needs.
But just as fast as the summer started, it seems to be almost over.
Goodbye summer picnics at Concerts in the park.
They will be missed.
I will soon be packing school lunches, sitting at the dinning room table helping with homework, attending school field trips and so much more…..so for now I’ll enjoy the last few lazy days of summer. But when you’re a mom, are there really any lazy days?!
