Back to School 2017

This week has been one for the books! Our two littlest sisters went to preschool!! They go to our church so it is super sweet programs for two & three year olds, we have been doing this since Harper was a 18 months. It really is such an awesome growing experience for them and all mamas deserve a minute of free time. Who’s with me?! 🙂 Getting them out the door each day has been a struggle but they enjoy it so much once they are in their classes & their teachers text me lots of happy photos! Eloise is so excited to get to cut & glue, and also have her best buds from last year in her class “booty & pelvis” (brody & hollis, and I will be so sad when she can pronounce their names right!!!). Claire is mostly excited about getting to wear a backpack.

Stage five clingers on their first day of preschool. ^

Last year we had to fill out some things for the girls’ classes answering a few questions & I have loved looking back on them so much that I decided to do it again with the girls this year. I will cherish their answers forever!!

How old are you?

Eloise: Free

Hope you have all had more happy than sad moments as all the little ones head back to school, we are so looking forward to getting into routines & all of the fun that is to come this FALL! 🙂 xo

    I’ve been following your blog since right before you had Harper, while I was pregnant with my first. My second (and youngest) is just a tad older than Eloise-both boys! It has been so special watching your littles grow right along with mine and laughing as I read your posts because I am right there with you. In the trenches. Lol! Thanks for continuing to post your sweet, funny and relatable stories. <3
