Most of you sent your kiddos back to school a couple of weeks ago but we just sent ours back last week. My oldest is in middle school and I am homeschooling the twins this year. Back to school shopping was easy peasy this year. I was elated with how short my shopping list was but then I became nostalgic for that feeling you get with back to school shopping. New clothes, backpacks, lunchboxes......so much of that was not needed this year since we are at home. As we were kind of preparing for back to school, a friend contacted me about making a special dress for her daughter, who was starting school this year. I really do not do dresses. Dresses like hair bows are just not something I have been allowed the pleasure of experiencing in a house full of boys.
Working on her daughters dress brought back so many memories of how we always prepared which new outfit the boys were going to wear on that first day. We usually took a pic of them with their new backpack and lunchbox heading out the door with a sign that has the first day of school written on it. I hope my friends daughter enjoyed her first day at school . This is what I was able to come up with for her daughters first day. I have this adorable crayon font that I have been waiting for the chance to use. This seemed the perfect time to try it out.
I really like how her mom wanted a bow tied on the crayon.
Since I do not get to hang around the girly world very often, I tried my hand at making some cute little hair clips.
I kind of liked hanging out in the dress and hairbow department. I might have to live vicariously through my friends with girls for awhile.
