Back to School 2018

Well, it’s official, the girls are all back in school for the year!! Packing lunches and waking up early are two of my least favorite things, but being back on a somewhat-schedule is good for all of us. This has not been the easiest transition for the girls, Harper had no problem jumping right back into first grade, Eloise & Claire, not so much. They were really comfortable with their old school, teachers & friends, but since they didn’t go back to school when we moved here, it is a big change for them. So we are still working through the morning goodbyes. Always a heart breaker!

After school naps are pretty much the cutest.

So, I have asked the girls the same few questions every year before going to school & love reading back on their answers, kids are seriously the funniest. I just wish I could accurately capture Claire’s little lisp in writing these.

How old are you?
Harper: Six and a half!
Eloise: Four!
Claire: Free.

What is your favorite color?
Harper: Pink
Eloise: Yellow
Claire: Pink AND yellow.

What is your favorite food?
Harper: Spaghetti.
Eloise: Sandwiches and grapes
Claire: ummm, a peanut butter shammich!

What is your favorite movie?
Harper: Tinkerbell
Eloise: The Greatest Showman
Claire: Peter Wabbit

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Harper: A singer
Eloise: A gymnastics girl!
Claire: Oh, Santa. I want to be Santa.

What is your favorite thing to play with?
Harper: Making art and books. And watching cooking shows on my ipad.
Eloise: My baby.
Claire: Mommy.

What do you love most?
Harper: Oh, definitely my family and God.
Eloise: Mommy and daddy and going to the pool.
Claire: Suckers. No, granola bars.

Happy 2018 school year to all of you & your little ones!! May the tears be few & far between!! XO
