Back to School: First Day of Grade 1 & 3

With 6 weeks of summer holiday’s the kids were ready to go back to school.

I mean I love them and everything, but they were starting to get on our nerves.

They were also starting to get bored.

Earlier on in the week I collected their school book packs.  Which then meant I was then met with the task of contacting them.

Let me just say that not all contact is created equal.

The contact that is more metallic is a pain in the bum with bubbles.

The vinyl / furry contact however, is super easy to contact with, and bonus little to no bubbles!

Contacting tip: make sure you have a big flat area, a ruler and lots of patience.

I did pick her up a new cardigan for those days where you just want something extra but not a jumper.

One of the items that Kayla was super excited to get in her school pack was a USB stick.  I have no idea what they will use the usb stick for, but it’s clearly labelled, and I’ve loaned her my Taylor Swift lanyard to keep it safe.

We pretty much had to replace his entire wardrobe.  I made sure I got him extra shirts, pants and shorts.

He was super excited to get new school shoes.  Will get him boots come closer to winter.

I set the alarm for 6:45 am to get breakfast and school lunches ready.

With a bowl of cereal and bacon into each child I pack them up with their respectfully full lunch boxes, and then went outside for obligatory First Day of School photo’s.

Have fun kids!
