Both Denver AND Ray started school this morning. Denver moved up to Pre-K and Ray is starting out in Preschool. Honestly, I’m thrilled to have them at school so I can actually get some things done, spend some time with Brennan, and get my sanity back. BUT, I have to make the cliche statement- that I can’t believe how fast time is going. Ray is still such a baby to me, so sending her off to school was tough.
I am so excited for them both and can’t wait to hear all the things they do and learn!
Of course, we did some festive things to get ready!
I made “first day” baskets for the girls with their new outfits, new shoes and first day bows. I included their lunch boxes and flags for photos! Added my Chalk Designs By Me tag and they turned out SO cute!
There have been SO many cute back to school set ups on the gram so, I’ve been collecting inspiration for a while. I wasn’t planning on doing anything for the girls until I saw these black and white plates on Ellie and Piper. They looked just like composition notebooks- and immediately had a vision I wanted to execute! So I ordered those and blue and white stripe plates that looks like paper. I added a red line to the striped plates to resemble a sheet of paper even more! I made wafer cookies inspired by @homeofuandme on Instagram- they were so easy and turned out ADORABLE. The girls had the perfect back to school celebration snack- and now I’m off the hook for a festive breakfast right?
Here are some photos before they left for school this morning.
Now, Brennan and I are gonna hang. Not really sure what I’m going to do with myself!
