First Day of Kindergarten…Take Two!

Well. What a week it has been over here in Terrell world. A few weeks ago I shared with you Lennox’s first day of the last few months of Montessori. We had decided to let Lennox stay at her Montessori school while we sold our house, found a new house and got settled. Our original hope was that she would get into a Charter school in the area, but the two weeks came and went and we didn’t get in. So that idea went out the window – some crushed hopes but it was reality and we moved on. 

Lennox started school, her old teacher was back – everything was going along smoothly. Tuesday comes along and ring ring ring goes my phone. It was our top choice school calling telling us they had someone not show up for the school year and Lennox’s name was next on the list! We couldn’t say yes fast enough! Honestly, a week into it – I still can’t believe she got in. 

So we hustled around to notify her current school, find aftercare, buy supplies (which by the way is super hard 2-3 weeks into school), buy uniforms and get ready! Then came Monday night and the night before Kindergarten!

I don’t think any of us could believe it was time for Lennox to head to her new school and Kindergarten! Wasn’t she just born a few days ago? 

We redid her first day of school photos – because you know – I have to! She was just a tad excited!

Of course she wanted a picture with Daddy…

Before we headed out the door and to her new school. She walked in like the biggest girl around, met her new teacher, saw her new room and then said a quick goodbye and never looked back! It’s about the cutest thing when I see her trot down the sidewalk in the morning and into the school – all on her own. She is growing up so quickly!!kindergarten-04

Here’s to a great year and hopefully a great 12 years at her new school! kindergarten-03

Lennox’s Fall Fashion Looks from OshKosh! #backtobgosh #bgoshjeanius

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received an OshKosh B’Gosh gift card to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

It may still be close to 100 degrees in Texas but we’re hoping and looking forward to the cooler weather that we know will EVENTUALLY hit Texas. While we wait (in)patiently for the cooler weather, Lennox and I hit the back to school sales to get some new fall clothes! Although Lennox will be wearing uniforms at her school this year, she will still need clothes for after school and the weekends – this means we skip some of the everyday play clothes sections and get to pick out some extra cute, extra stylish outfits – since they don’t get worn as often! 

Needless to say, when we went to OshKosh we found so many great outfits – it was hard to just pick a few. Lennox wanted to try on everything! There were so many different types of outfits, different than the normal pink, glittery outfit – which I do love – but sometimes we want something different. These new outfits Lennox and I picked out were big girl outfits, in great fall colors!

As soon as we got home, it was time to show off our new clothes in a fashion show. She set up chairs for Kyle and I to sit in, we had music and a camera! The poses are 100% her own and the fashionista is her at heart! Here are her fashion looks – 6 looks, plus accessories for under $150!

oshkosh-back-to-school-outfit-01I personally just love this outfit. One, she is super cute with her jacket over her shoulder – but I love the colors – the new black, white & indigo collection is full of so many unique outfits.oshkosh-back-to-school-outfit-02

We’ve never had an flannel in her wardrobe before and honestly I didn’t think she would want it – but she did and it’s super cute! Yeehaw says Lennox! oshkosh-back-to-school-outfit-03 oshkosh-back-to-school-outfit-04As we go down, we get more and more casual. This is great cool fall day outfit! oshkosh-back-to-school-outfit-05And if it warms up, like it most likely will in our crazy Texas weather – there is a matching tank top under her hoodie!

Also – mornings can be so hectic on a school day, so to help you get going this fall and hopefully get the morning routine down pat, here is a quick checklist you could print out and have your little one fill out each day!

Last Few Months of Montessori

Yesterday should have been Lennox’s first day at public kindergarten but we are in the (crazy) process of getting our house on the market and eventually moving. Since we’ll be moving to a different town we decided to leave Lennox in her Montessori school for a few more months. She spends so much time there and her little world is going to change so much, that keeping something constantly the same (school), was a good idea that my dad came up with. Thanks Dad!

So yesterday, even though she goes to Montessori year round, was an exciting day for Lennox. Her teacher from last year (who has been on Maternity leave since February), was back and Lennox could not wait to get to school and see her! This year she is the big kid in class, and gets to be a class leader to help out the littles.

We saved the traditional back to school photos for when she starts public kindergarten later this year, but I just had to snap a few pictures before she headed out the door – as she looked extra cute and excited!

Here’s to a great few last months of Montessori where she can “stretch her mind” (as her teacher says), and learn so much! Soak in the goodness Lennox, we sure will miss Montessori once we leave!
