Back to School!

Fall is here! In most ways I consider Fall to be my “New Year”. Much more than January 1st. New weather, new routine, new clothes…a fresh start. I love Fall! Can’t wait to go pick pick apples and hunt for the perfect pumpkin!

Of course I did some back to school crafting and I’ll get to that, but first…

Today was the first day of Kindergarten for the little man! Isn’t he handsome?


The PTA was there giving out flowers to all the new Fanning Elementary families. Carter gave one to me…so sweet of him. If I wasn’t already on the verge of tears, I was then!


I have to say, I did much better than I expected I would. Shed one little tear as he headed into to classroom, but otherwise held it together very well! Surprising because I figured I’d be a total mess!


Here is a shot of him settling into his classroom. I know it blurry…cut me some slack. I took it through the window paparazzi style!


As soon as I got home, my PTA flower found a home and some new friends on our dining room table.


And last but not least…a few back to school crafts for your viewing pleasure!

A new snack bag for Carter following this tutorial at Skip to My Lou. I know, I'm so green :) I didn’t use oil cloth though. I used some super cute Michael Miller fabric and covered it in iron-on vinyl. So fun! I love that stuff!


And a super cheesy gift for the new teacher using this tutorial from Oops I Craft my Pants…I laugh every time I say that!


Happy Fall friends!
