Clothed with Grace: Making the Most of It

Making the Most of It

The sad reality is, summer for us is pretty much over. I start back to school next week, Hannah will start daycare, and Grant will be going to kids' club at his school for two weeks, because he doesn't start until the 16th-lucky guy!

This week we've tried to make the most of it. Grant went to a local amusement park with my mom, we went to the zoo, the library, and have a playdate tomorrow. I know I said this before, but being a stay at home mom is no joke. It's definitely more work than working outside of the the home is. I really feel like we've just gotten into a decent grove, and it's back to reality.  I'm excited for what this years brings for the kids. Grant will be in first grade (say what???) and Hannah is starting at a great school (daycare/montessori) I think she'll really thrive at.

I, on the other hand, am not super excited for my new school year, but I'm sure it will be fine. With curriculum changes I feel like I have a lot of ground to cover. I'm not apposed to change, but I am a bit pragmatic and a creature of habit, and I really dislike when changes are made over the summer without an time available for us to prepare for them.   I am excited to get to see my work friends more again and I do enjoy getting to wear my school clothes again too. I'm sure things will be fine once I get back in the swing of things.

This embroidered blouse just came in the mail and I adore it! The quality and fit is good and it's less than $20! It's perfect for now and will be great once I'm back to work too.

  1. Sounds like you have made the most out of your summer...can't believe you have to go back already! Your top is too cute!

  2. I feel like summers with babies are good but hard. Good luck going back. I'm not far behind you...

  3. Glad you are having a great summer. Can't believe it's almost over for you.

  4. Very cute outfit. Summer does go by so fast. I love Fall, but I would be willing to have a few more weeks of summer! Ha, ha. - Amy

  5. Montessori school? Your daughter and your family are going to love it!
    I have worked at a Montessori school for the last 13 years, and our daughter went there for 9 (Kindergarten to 8th grade) and we only have good things to say about our experience :)

  6. I love your earrings and the sandals. Accessories do make the outfit!
