Back to School

Today is the DAY! This sweet little nugget is finally off on a big girl adventure and she’s headed to kindergarten! I have all the mama feels about sending her. On one hand, I’m so excited for her! She’s been inside this school more times than we could ever keep count of sending big kids off on many “first” days, volunteering, witnessing festive parties, and on and on. This definitely won’t be a new space for Britt. On the other hand, my goodness-sending my baby to kindergarten is tough! I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am we kept her at home an extra year. I have a list of “mom worries” {that I know I shouldn’t have but I do} and well, so many things aren’t on that list this year that totally would have been had we sent her last year. Just a little mom advice-do what feels best for YOUR family.

In honor of sending the baby off to kindergarten, we had a little photo shoot with Mrs. Jessica. She was absolutely amazing!! Local friends-She’s finished with Back to School pics this year, but definitely give her a follow so you’ll see when she starts those next summer. She took so many amazing pics of Britty. I’m sharing some of my favorites with you….

Praying this school year is a great one! Wishing you and your kiddos a great first day today {or as soon as it arrives for your crew} as well.

Now I’m off to get my people ready! Have a great day, friends!
