summer 2015: 85/89

yesterday was school supply drop off and the kids finally found out who their teachers will be for the year!

they are so excited about being at the same school together.

i am pretty excited about it, too!

at any rate, yesterday made the end of summer and beginning of school just that more real for me.

back to school 1

so i took down our summer list, and put up a little back to school vignette.

now i feel like i need to have a back to school party for the kids!

earlier this summer i picked up some signs from the target dollar spot. they look like street signs, but are for the classroom.

back to school 2

i added a vintage flash card {and a couple other vintage cards} with a note on it saying:

back to school 3

back to school 4

{the kids gave their teachers different signs, but i forgot to take photos of them before we went to the school yesterday.}

it was a great way to “break the ice” with new teachers!

the little guy lucked out, and knows his teacher because she taught first grade last year. we are thrilled that she will be his teacher this year.

baby girl has a teacher who is new to the school, but she was so welcoming and friendly i know it will be a good fit.

i am really looking forward to teaching art literature in both classes, and volunteering whenever the teachers may need my help!

back to school 5

before school starts we have a great weekend planned.

a running race for a great cause.

ryan’s birthday.

a holiday weekend…maybe a back to school party…or an outdoor movie?!

and, on the little guy’s first day of school we will also celebrate baby girl’s birthday!

good times.

    Goodness it brings back memories! I have to admit when my children were small it was a welcome relief to return to a routine again. It seems to be a good thing at first to have all that freedom, but it can also feel like the days slip by without noticing. Now I see the mums walking their children to school with fondness, they were good days.

    Very celebratory! I have always loved the scowling FP kid in the red hat… bet the kids’ teachers can’t wait to have them in their classrooms! Here in the Great Lakes NE, our kids went back Sept 2 and end their school year around June 24! You get a whole lot more summer vacation in the Pacific NW… enjoy!

    I love this! So creative and I’d imagine definitely makes going back to school waaaay more fun. Will have to think about doing something like this when my littlun is older. Loving all the retro toys as well!
