Ok so I haven’t been providing my standard reviews lately…this end of summer starting school has really been tricky for me to get a grip of! Lol! I remember when I was younger waking up for school was killer so much so that I would wear my school outfit to bed so I could roll out of bed, brush my teeth and jump in the car! I’m seriously fifteen years later and two kids considering wearing my next day attire to bed when S has school! Further more it’s to the point that I have no shame in allowing S to dress herself for school. Let me tell you that must mean I’m over tired as I can’t stand when kids look like little hot messes anywhere but especially at paid for programs! I mean if I put the effort in to enrolling you then I need to put the effort in to rolling you in to something cute to wear to it! But this week I really have taken the view of I’m tired and sure I will let you express your sense of style today! K on the other hand would prefer I let him wear his fleece zip up footed jammies’ all day, every day! But I have gotten him dressed half decent. The only thing he’s missing is a good brush as his hair has been a bit cray-cray but he’s a boy with a sweet smile so he can pull it off.
I will tell you the first day of school S was done up like she was born to be treated and look like a princess. Have I mentioned she truly believes she is either Ariel or Aurora. K of course is always Prince Eric. Anyway, the weekend prior we went for our manicure and pedicures. The first day she went to the salon first thing for a quick trim and style and thankfully she wore the dress I wished; which is a rare thing! Now week three and it’s all slipping rather quickly! What’s next I allow her to simply wear her silk Disney princess pajamas and light up gym shoes through the Montessori doors! They really will think either I’ve lost it or given up the fight of holding my ground on what’s school/out of the house appropriate and what’s not. I mean I do allow them to wear their Ariel and Grand Canyon Ranger outfits grocery shopping…that’s appropriate as its mid week/mid day and all the elderly think they are adorable all dressed up!
My parents and I took S and K to our Corn Fest…yes we do this type of thing in the mid west! Guess what it was a great time! Free corn on the cob and spending fifty dollars for S and K to experience carnival rides and having their faces painted! So worth every penny! We went on Sunday so it was dead which meant they were able to ride all rides with no wait and then watch what seemed to be the longest parade of our lives! They loved every minute of it. I remember doing a lot of fun things with my family as a kid but carnival/theme parks I really can’t say was one of them. Seeing their faces with a mix of fear and over joy was so great! Did I mention they had my mom do the potato sack slides with them! She says she didn’t want to but the pictures say otherwise!
Crafts have been on the rise over here! The weather took a crazy turn and has been rather cool. But, I wouldn’t expect anything less! With that being said I have welcomed fall decorating with open arms. Joe had to remind me it was September and maybe I was pushing it with my thanksgiving crafts already so I thought well as long as the porch screams Halloween we are good…right?! I’m almost done with the porch but here are pics so far. I’ve also included my thanksgiving decoration start!
The shop is coming along nicely and I will get an update with pictures this weekend to you! I also refinished an old school desk I will get up for you to check out! I’m sure there are three hundred other things I need to share but for this evening I will leave it at this! Have a great night and be well!
