Back to School: Kindergarten

Liam starts Kindergarten on Wednesday, this Wednesday!  Eek!  He's excited, I'm excited.  I'm gonna cry, but surely they will be big happy tears.  This is such a big milestone!  While his Kindergarten is an all day program (not happy about that one bit), they do let the kids ease into those long days.  The first three days of school are only half days, as is every Wednesday (Utah, you're weird!).  I'm thrilled to start making lunches & adding fun notes to them, once he learns to read of course!  And I know that I will just be a puddle when I see him in his formal uniform on that first day!  Liam is attending a Catholic School, so on Mass days (Wednesdays) he has a slightly more formal uniform than the one he will wear on other days.  So much to learn!  But don't worry, we found out at parent night that there is an app for that.  I seriously sat in a powerpoint to learn an app.  For school.  Crazy times! 
Tonight there is an open house where we will get to meet his teacher, see the classroom, his locker (his locker!), drop off all the supplies, etc.  I may take Liam on a little mama date after, just wanting to soak up our final days together.  Final days before school starts, before baby arrives.  So many exciting changes ahead!  Here are some things we picked up to get him all ready for school:

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5

I havne't pulled the trigger on the label maker yet, but I'm feeling the need to label all. the. things!!!  Liam's hiking/camping backpack works great for school too!  And I ordered some of the inch bug labels (#3) for his water bottle; I believe the code "education" will still get you 15% off!  I love the Camelbak water bottles because of the absolutely adorable prints; I can't resist.  And he wouldn't be nearly hipster enough without a bento style lunchbox!
Wish us luck on the first day!


  1. I can't wait to see him in his uniform. Such a big boy! Hang in there Momma. You've got this.

  2. Oh goodness, uniforms..?! How adorable. Hope this week goes smooth getting into the new routine. I'm sure Liam will do awesome!! It sure is a lot of changes to take on, you can do it!!

  3. Omg. I can't believe this is happening!! And you totally need the label maker. A label maker + nesting sounds like a winning combination!

  4. There is the cutest website called Lovable Labels where you can order awesome name labels for the kiddos!

  5. that lunch box is perfect! i need to get one for my daughter! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  6. Wow, school starts today (Wednesday)! Kindergarten is such a big transition. I'm wishing both you Liam a very happy day! I didn't go to a Catholic grammar school, but I did go to a Catholic college. Hopefully, you will find everyone nurturing and supportive there. Good luck. I did cry during Lewie's first day of kindergarten--oh the emotional roller coaster of parenthood. We're proud to see them grow up but still nostalgic for the past.
