How is it already back to school season!?? This summer seriously FLEW. We had to make the tough decision earlier this year if we wanted to hold Ry back one more year in Pre-K or send her through to kindergarten. Her birthday is August 19th, so she would have been the very youngest in her class if we were to send her through. After chatting with her teacher and sitting on it a bit, we came to the decision that it would probably be best to let her have one more year in Pre-K. For Rylee, this decision wasn’t really an academic one, as we felt she was more than equipped there. It was more an emotional / social one. Ry is a sensitive little person. (I have no idea where she got that from! haha). She is shy and timid and slow to open up. When she does, she gives all of herself, but it’s getting there that is the challenge. We felt that one more year in Pre-K would give her the opportunity to grow in her social skills and self confidence. I know in my gut it was the right decision for her. We just got a letter in the mail today from her new teacher and she has made me read it about a thousand times over! She is so excited to see some of her old classmates from last year, and meet some new ones too!
We took a trip to Famous Footwear to get ALL of us some new kicks for the season. Needless to say, we went a little Converse crazy! Sam has been wearing cons for as long as I’ve known him. Of course, Cru is a mini Sam, so we got him a new pair of black chucks to match dad. And Ry wanted to be like me with new leather white ones! I guess Sam’s style has rubbed off on all of us :) I’m wearing the new Chuck Taylor All Star High Top Sneaker in all white. With all the running around bringing the kids to and from school, dance classes, play dates, ect, it’s nice to have a pair of shoes that are comfy and adapt to my on-the-go lifestyle. I used to be a heels gal, boy has that changed! I think we are all ready for school to start and to have our schedule back again! Super excited for my girl and all the fun things in store for her this school year! Let’s do this!
