......back to school and a Stuck on You giveaway.......

.....the first week of school passed by without a hitch.....it really could not have gone any better and my girl enthusiastically hopped out of bed at the crack of dawn each morning dressed, smiling and announcing if it was a gym, library, music, art or language day......she even scotch taped her rotation schedule to the inside of her closet so she could dress according to her assigned activity......dress, skort, sneakers, sandals etc......she wanted to be prepared each day and she did it with so much enthusiasm......she is a carbon copy of the typical people pleasing, success striving, goal oriented first born personality description and she brings a smile to my face each morning as she gleefully prepares for school.....it makes it hard to wallow in my own self pity on how much I miss her throughout the day because she is thriving and loving her new routine......

.....her first soccer practice on Friday evening?......well, that did not go as well as school, but we were certainly excited about the idea of it......


.....with Callie and Brody as my only babes at home this week, it has been a great opportunity for us to prep for nursery school......this is our last week of summer before our fall schedule is in full swing and we have carved out fun and lazy to balance the back to school projects that will ease us into fall.......we have been working on our family books that Brody and Callie will take with them to school......they'll keep them in their cubbies and refer to them during free play or anytime they may feel like they need to sneak a peek of some of their favorite photos......I am hoping that the books will not be needed to deal with transition or separation anxiety, but I am bracing for that too......

.....I am thrilled to partner with Stuck on You again this fall, as their amazing products have us fully equipped for back to school......Callie remained glue and marker free during the creation of her book thanks to her new art smock......




.....she loves the personalization of her name, the fact that her smock is pink and the special front pocket where she carried her glue with her every time she wanted a new spot at our work table......



....I am not sure that at 2.5 years old he understands what it means to start school, but Brody does recognize his name and enjoys participating in the same projects as his sisters......he loved preparing his book and I organized all of his supplies for his project in his new pencil case......



.....it is the perfect size for a toddler to manage a few things, yet it is small enough for me to throw in my purse and carry for him......


.....Stuck on You is also offering two winners a $20 voucher to use for back to school purchases.......their products also make great gifts for all ages......


.....Brody is still looking for more items to take to school.....


.....if you are in full fall swing, enjoy the new routine......if you are savoring the last days of summer, enjoy your slow and lazy as you prep for school to begin......

Nice Article, So when you visit Best Pre Primary Schools
look to see if teachers smile and are generally encouraging of children. Look to see how the teachers interact with the other children in the classroom and if there seem to be strong connections between them. Also talk to parents at the school about their experience.
