Back to school, back to school…
First day of 2nd and 4th! Isla was SUPER excited- she woke me up around 5am saying, “It’s light outside! Can I get dressed now??” Um, no. Jack was happy to see his buddies but less enthusiastic about going back to school. Oh, and he told us not to walk him to his classroom. Ugh- is that starting already??
Also, I looked back at last year’s first day pic and Jack was like 4 inches shorter than that wreath. Hold me.
They got out at noon today and both seemed really happy! It was nice to have the afternoon to just chill- it was an early morning for all of us (we really enjoyed our no-schedule summer). Tomorrow’s their first full day and we’re easing back into the early bedtimes.
Oh my word it is SO FREAKING HOT here. Over 100 and so humid. I’m trying to use the stove as little as possible and mainly rely on the air fryer and Instant Pot. Tonight I made my favorite summer salad (butter lettuce, sliced strawberries, shaved red onion, avocado, blue cheese, candied pecans and poppyseed dressing) and air fried brussels sprouts drizzled with balsamic glaze. I also baked some panko-crusted cod filets from Costco:
Ok apparently mama needs an early bedtime too!! I spent the summer staying up WAY too late reading. It’s 9pm and I’m seriously debating heading to bed.
Happy first day of school, last week of summer, etc!
