There are only 9 more days left before Henry starts Kindergarten and these two won’t be able to cause trouble together. I’m also going to be putting Evelyn in a part time preschool program so my days will look a whole lot different. As much as I am looking forward to some time to myself so I can work and not break up fights every 10 minutes, it will be sad that my “new normal” is changing yet again. I’ve gotten so used to the kids being home, the house being messy, driving to play dates and camps and the pool that everything around me will be so different. One of the hardest things parents have to do is send their children off on their own, to a new place, with new people and not be there to protect them. I have to put my faith in their schools, teachers and peers and hope that I’ve been doing a good job teaching them how to be good humans. Fingers crossed for a great school year!
A sure sign that summer is nearing its end in Atlanta is when the sunflowers start to bloom. One way I wanted to treasure this last summer before both kids entered school was to go to the amazing sunflower farm near us. This session has definitely produced some of my favorite photographs of these two kiddos. I chose their adorable outfits from Janie and Jack because I knew the white would pop beautifully against all the flowers. I love Janie and Jack for several reasons: the pieces are classic and timeless, they wash well and last forever, and you can mix and match nearly everything. I’ve never been disappointed with the quality of the clothing. Here’s to the last week of summer vacation for us! Happy Friday!
How are you coping with back to school time with your kids? Do you have any before school traditions you do together? Let me know in the comments!
