Tomorrow we go back to school. We’re pretty much the last school district in the world to finish summer break, but I haven’t minded a bit. This summer has been glorious. We’ve had a lot of traveling between Philip and I, but between all the busyness of travel, we’ve laid really low and spent a lot of days at home sleeping in, playing games, building forts, reading books, and of course building with Legos (my boys’ absolute favorite).
But one great thing about heading back to school is a little more one on one time with my boys. I’ve missed my “Mornings with Foster,” and even though we’ll have a little tagalong baby most of the time, I’m excited to have that time without B so Fos can just talk and share and communicate with me.
It seems like he’s grown about a foot this summer — a huge chunk of his clothes suddenly don’t fit him anymore, he’s losing his little baby speech impediments, and he’s amazing me daily with his smarts and independence.
Since he needed a few new things for school (since he’s grown out of so much of his wardrobe), we picked up some things from Zappos. They’re one of my favorite shopping go-to’s because they have a huge selection and then their fast, free shipping makes it easy to get things, even at the last minute (not that I’m ever running behind…ha!).
I’ve had my eye on Superga sneakers for a few months, so I picked up matching pairs for us — navy high-tops for him, and metallic silver for me (you know I can’t ever say no to a good pair of sneakers).
I love that his zip up on the side so he can put them on by himself (ahem, independence), and I love that mine are a really slim and sleek sneak that I can pair with all sorts of things, but especially dresses.
