Sayonara Summer

We officially and tearfully have said our goodbyes to summer and geared up to say hello to a new school year. My little muffin children started back to school today. Logan is starting second grade and Landry begins her final year of Pre-K. As you are reading this, I am probably wiping away proud mommy tears. 

It's back to schedules, routines, homework, early bedtimes and even earlier mornings. It's always a HUGE adjustment for us all, but I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and excited to see what this school year has in store for us all. 

FRIDAY
We had school supply drop off night at Logan's school. We already love her because she is a fellow Texas State Bobcat. I will say, I am starting to feel OLD because this is the first time the teacher is YOUNGER than me. UGH.

Of course we had to fulfill our Mexican food fix after we finished at school. It's the only way to kick off the weekend in our house. And you can't eat Mexican food without a Texas martini or marg.
It's just not right.

 
SATURDAY
My girls and I did a little last minute shopping. This is what I wore. It's an old one from Forever 21 that I almost got rid of when I cleaned out my closet last weekend. We rekindled our relationship and happy for it.

The ceramic egg crate you see above is an Anthropologie knock-off from World Market for $5.99. These have been floating around the blog world for quite some time. They are perfect for organizing your small jewelry pieces. My studs and rings did a happy dance. Thanks, Landi, for telling me that World Market carried them!

SATURDAY CONTINUED
We hit up the pool for a neighborhood birthday and back to school celebration. Who can guess what we had for dinner? Hint...look at Landry's cheeks! Can we all say, "HOT MESS"? Yes, she is our Sparkle Monkey!

 
SUNDAY
We spent all Sunday as a family. 
We started our day with church, then brunch, a small nap and then this...

Barbie Hair Extensions. 

Ross took the reigns and helped the girls with their designs while I sat back and snapped up the pictures. I couldn't stop smiling as I listened to him suggest which hair pattens he thought were the cutest. I love this man! 

Excuse the indecent Barbie that Landry is holding. 
FYI, every single Barbie in our house looks like this. I give up.


I can't think of a better way send off the summer than with a family snow cone cheers! 

So, sayonara dog days of summer. 
It's been real and a whole lot of fun.
See you in 272 days!

I don't know if I am ready for early school days. My son starts pre-school this year and has to be there by 8:30. That is way too early for us. Real school is going to be killer!!!
