5 days.. (My favorite back to school pins)

In 5 short days my “baby” starts Pre-K and although I am nervous, I am loving all of the back to school projects and ideas that are circulating on Pinterest!

Thought I would share some of my favorites with you today. :)

A little questionnaire for your child’s new teacher..

I love all of those cutesy lunches I see on Pinterest, but let’s face it, I wouldn’t always have time to make a “fancy” lunch for my duaghter.. That is where this list of frugal lunch ideas comes in to play. :)

I could go on posting them all day! But instead, I will direct you to my “School” Pinterest board. :)

What about you? Do you have any favorite pins/blog posts/tips, etc. for back to school? I’d love for you to share them with me!

Open house

Abby’s first school experience was last night (Friday). I was supposed to be at Craft Weekend, but I ended up not being able to go. As sad as I was about that, I was so excited that I wouldn’t have to miss Abby’s open house!!

She was so excited to see her classroom and meet her teacher!

We tried to get pictures with her and Daddy too, but she was ready to go inside!!

She was shy at first, but didn’t want to leave when it was time. :)

I can’t believe our “baby” is starting school! In our county, for Pre-K they do this system called Step By Step. For the first week of school, only 5 kids are in the class per day. This way the teacher can get to know them before everyone is in the class all together. I love this idea!! Abby’s first day is Friday. :)

We went and got her school supplies last night, and her special requested “unicorn” (pony) backpack and lunchbox are set to arrive at our house via UPS on Tuesday. :)

So excited and nervous for this new venture!!
