School started back here a few weeks ago but my boys don’t start until next Tuesday, which means we’ve been enjoying having the playgrounds all to ourselves.
Heading back to school was always one of my favorite things when I was younger, probably because it meant fresh school supplies and a shopping trip for new clothes with my grandma. I still love a box of fresh crayons…so much potential.
Evan is attending preschool three days a week this year, which meant (yea!) I got to shop for school supplies. And they were the fun ones like cute lunch boxes and crayons and brightly colored scissors. I’m sure there will come a point when this is less exciting, like when both boys have a 2 page list that includes things like “protractor” and “college lined loose leaf paper” and they carry the same backpack every year. Until then, I’m enjoying reliving those early school days…which is the point to having kids right?? To live vicariously thru them and have an excuse to watch Disney movies and visit splash parks.
I realize in a few short years Evan will be picking out his own clothes. This is what he was wearing this morning…
He told me he’s a “cowboy”
These are a few Back-to-school looks I put together for him when he’s not a cowboy. Since cute clothes for boys are harder to come by than things for girls I thought I’d share some of my favorites:
Preschool Back to School
I love these Old Navy Jeans since they actually fit my skinny babies – I think we own them in every size now. E has the high-tops and he loves them (he calls them “puffy” shoes). Since the laces are elastic he can put them on himself, which is a big help.
Back in Black
I love grey jeans right now and luckily the same skinny ones are available from Old Navy. My boys both love a hat and I can’t wait till it gets cool enough for them to start wearing adorable knit ones. I love that elephant backpack because it’s kid friendly in a really subtle way.
All American Boy
Blue jeans and white tees are my personal staples so I love classic American style…plus tiny Chucks are adorable.
Preschool Gym Day
Most of the time my boys are in comfy clothes at home – so fun graphic tees and sweats that E deemed “cool pants” are a must. I adore those Plae shoes with the interchangeable straps but unfortunately they don’t yet come in a small enough size for my boys’ tiny toes.
