Back to School 2014!

Here’s Amelia on her first day of school!!! She looks so happy! Freckles, on the other hand looks exhausted. It’s been hard for him having to wake up and take an early walk so we can get Amelia to school on time.


This will be Amelia’s first year of going to school for a full day and eating lunch at school. She is really excited about it and we are too! I am happy I was at home with her for the first 3 1/2 years of her life but now it’s time for me to go back to work. Amelia also enjoys being with other kids and doing her own thing so it’s going to be a good change for all of us.

I have been dealing with the change well. I only have one weird neurotic mom obsession and that’s her lunch. I feel like packing a nice lunch for her is a way to remind her how much I love her. So I try to pack her favorite foods and when she is old enough to read I will pack a note.

Happy Back to School to everyone! I hope your kids have a great year filled with new friends and learning!

    You guys are so cute. :-) Pre-school is fun she is going to have a blast. I volunteered in Warren’s pre-school room once a week last year. We both loved it. I’m just waiting for my background check to come back so I can do it again only this time in his kindergarten room. I shocked his teacher letting her know I was more than willing to come in once a week and help with anything she needs. I know most parents have to work but even if they took off one day a month to just hang out in their kids classroom, it’s worth it. You get to see and learn so much about what’s going on in this new world and you get to see your kiddo shine. It’s so fun, and at this age they are happy to point and say “that’s my mom!” with a smile. Hopefully that lasts forever but well…teenagers lol. I hope Amelia has a great time at school, and I have no doubt she appreciates the lunches you make her. :-)

      Thanks Jess! We aren’t allowed to volunteer until January ;( because they want the kids to be completely used to separation. I definitely plan on volunteering though!

        Aww that would drive me crazy, but makes perfect sense. You’ll have so much fun. I hope Amelia tells you more about her day than Warren does lol.

    Love BOTH your dresses…

    :0)
    I agree with you on LUNCH fact…
    I always struggle with it…
    Ian’s so picky and there’s only about 3 MAIN things I can pack… A hot dog, mac n cheese or a peanut butter sandwich…
    The little extras are easy, it’s just the MAIN item that’s hard… LOL
    Hope A is a little easier… :0)
    Enjoy the school year!!!
    Have fun!!!
