back to school.

Well, the first week of school has come and gone. Roman's school lets out two hours early for the first two weeks due to the heat, which is making for a nice transition. I don't want to think too much about my little boy being gone until 3:00 everyday yet! We went to Target + Old Navy last Friday to finish up our back to school shopping and it was so much fun. Well, until Asher's melt down that lasted two days over the light-up Ninja Turtle shoes he didn't get to buy, yikes...
Roman seems very happy with his class. He miraculously picked a navy blue lunch box over all the obnoxious cartoon character ones which secretly made me happy and he told me all about trading some of his goldfish crackers at lunch with his classmates; it was, "so awesome," he says. Roman was super excited to tell me that he got a chance to be a "behavior bee" in his class, which means that he was rewarded for his good behavior by being able to sit in the bumblebee bean bag chair. His face was just lit up when he told me about it in the car. He really is just the sweetest, sweetest little boy - his teacher is pretty lucky I'd say.
I am exhausted from my first week of school. I feel overwhelmed and stressed and a little in over my head. I really am not used to being so busy and it's just really tiring especially on Tuesdays + Thursdays where my days are 12+ long with work and school now. I'm still trying to figure things out as far as classes transferring / financial aid etc. as well so needless to say, I am super glad that it's Saturday. I don't work OR have school today because Aaron is working in the mountains and I'm hoping the boys will want to pretty much sit around and do nothing all day. Maybe I'll sort through some laundry as well since we have a new (to us) washer + dryer set!
FabKids sent us these "back to school" outfits and oh my gosh, I am in LOVE with them. These little Fender and NPR tee shirts are just the coolest things ever and they are super soft / great quality as well. I've had these outfits waiting in the wings to be photographed for a while now but it's just been too gosh darn hot to put the boys in jeans. Last night was a super cool / rainy / fall weather kind of evening so after baths I took the boys out to the porch to do our traditional back to school sign coloring. I love how Roman went for a "color-blocking" technique and Asher was very excited and worked hard on his as well, although afterwards he ripped both of these papers to shreds in true Asher style! At least I have the photos though, right? ;)
How is the back to school season going for you all?

  1. The pic of Asher sort of in the middle, the one not holding the sign is my favourite thing! He is KILLING that pose. His face, his overlapped shoes, his arms out...nailed it.
    Sounds like a rough transition but hopefully things start to fall in place and feel like the norm soon. And, two day tantrums...gee that sounds super fun.

    1. Haha, you're right! I was thinking that was kind of a funny picture but he totally looks like he is posing hardcore there! :)

  2. I'm glad the first week went well…rest up for next week!

  3. How very, very sweet. It sounds like you're a busy bee! Enjoy that washer and dryer and rest up!

  4. ohmygosh, hearing the stories about their days at school must've been the cutest thing! i can just imagine how excited they were to share with you. sounds like you've got two very sweet boys. it seems as though last week was a good start to a new school year!

  5. Oh my, I never knew I needed my son to have an NPR tee! Geek fit. We've been in school for two+ weeks now and it's rolling right along. My big boy loves it and he's already blowing me away by how much he's learning!


Please comment, I'd love to hear from you!
