Cute stuff for School



I have been super pumped about getting my kids organized for school.  Probably because it secretly forces me to get organized as well.  My 7 year old started a new school this week and my youngest started Pre-K.  I was up till 1:00 a.m. the night before the first day putting together all the supplies, bookbags, lunch boxes and labeling, labeling, labeling.  I wore out a Sharpie which is not easy. 
When I found out that my son had to have every school supply, including 2 boxes of pencils, individually labeled I decided to go all out and make Cathe Holden's pencil labels.  I used some phrases from her and some of my own. 
I also made new labels for my little one to identify her bookbag and lunch box.  I downloaded these from Living Locurto.  I had already made her some ID tags so I plan to use these when the old ones get torn apart (by the looks of them after one week that won't be long.)

First Week of School and all that stuff

School has started and my taxi service is up and running.   My daughter has to bring in a picture of herself doing something she "loves" and this is what we got.  When I asked her what she was going to do she stated "dress up."  But it looks more like she loves being Catwoman to me.

Beachy Afternoon

So I'm finally blogging again.  We've been in such transition since February - moving temporarily while waiting for our new house to close.  Now we're moving again to our new home in 2 weeks and I can't wait.  I finally feel some order in the chaos.   Meanwhile, school starts here tomorrow for my two little ones so it's time to get organized and start packing.
We went to the beach yesterday as sort of a "last time before school"  and had a picnic (fried chicken and fruit salad- yummy).  But seriously it's so hot here that we go to the beach almost year round.   The kids were wiped out and slept like rocks - which was the GOAL.  
Just what it says . . .

Digging for Shark Teeth at Venice Beach, Florida

I'm thinking of what to do to celebrate back to school . . . something special for when they get home that first day.
