Five on Friday – Friday Favorites!

Y’all it’s been the best week!!  Summer school, swim lessons, and a weekend ahead of us at the lake – hallelujah! Although, I can’t believe June is almost gone. Where is the summer going? This is the first week for us that’s really felt like summer – a hot, hot summer!

Summer School…. woohoo, we waited 30 long days for you! We’ve been at the same school for the last two years and loved it, but decided we needed to make a change because of schedules and pricing. We officially start the new school in September, but when we found out they’re offering a summer program, we gladly signed up! Both walked in holding hands and cried when they had to leave each other. It was quite possibly my favorite moment all week. AB thought she had to carry her lunchbox in all by herself! Successful first day in the books!IMG_3735-1IMG_3750IMG_3749

Speaking of school, these are a must when sending kids to daycare or school. As you all know, EVERYTHING has to be labeled, and when you have your favorite sippy cup, you definitely don’t want it going home with someone else. Aunt TayTay gave us these labels about a year ago, and since then I’ve ordered more. They fit on all sippies, snack containers, bottles, etc. and stay on in the dishwasher. They don’t peel off like stickers, and you can switch them out from cup to cup if you need to. A definite favorite instead of the ole black sharpie…and they make great gifts!

This quote – I came across it this week and thought it was fabulous. Simplicity in so many aspects of our lives is much needed. Our schedules, the clothes and jewelry we wear, how we decorate our houses, the things we collect or hold onto, the number of fantasy teams we have, etc. (kidding…sort of) Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 9.07.58 PM

AB in goggles and PB with his trains have been a constant favorite all week. We’ve put on and taken off goggles approximately 54 times in the last five days…And I’ve stepped on about the same number of trains. 


This was the scene the second day of school. All dressed and ready to go……sort of! I was loading everything in the car and kept yelling for them to come get in. They had both crawled back into my bed and made themselves comfy. I get it kids, some days I don’t want to get out of bed either!  

This afternoon we’re headed to the lake with 12 adults and 10 kids for a nice relaxing weekend (said no parent of a toddler, ever).  Happy Fri-yay everyone!

I’m linking up again this week for Five on Friday and Friday Favorites
