This morning was spent wading through piles upon piles of kids clothes. We're trying to wrap our heads around the fact that school starts two weeks from today. Two weeks?!
The first step in our back to school prep every year is cleaning out the children's dressers. I started with Abby. Then Easton. When I made it to Audrey, the sweet girl had already emptied out her drawers and was re-folding and sorting her piles.
By the end of our 10 minute fashion show of trying things on, inspecting for stains and holes all we had left was a small pile. Some long sleeve t's, a few pairs of leggings, 2 skirts, and a dress she wore on the first day last year.
This girl of mine is growing! Both in body and maturity. She loves to play the mommy, wear her swimming suit all day, instruct Oliver in their make believe play "Oliver, pretend I'm the mommy and you're the baby.", and is constantly making us laugh with the ridiculous things she says.
I made a list in my phone of things to buy to supplement every one's wardrobes but am wondering how you handle back to school shopping? Do you do it all at once? Wait till the weather cools? Search thrift stores? I'm so curious to hear how others tackle this task.
