Back to School with Freshly Picked

Ok, I may cry for a week straight. Ryder starts school in two weeks from today!!! He is so excited and has been to a few fun camp days they host at his preschool this summer. He loves it and walks in, no worries at all! I, on the other hand, sit back waving franticly for 6 minutes while all the teachers smile at me (but I know inside they are rolling their eyes!!) because I’m that mom. 

I can’t believe how quick this day has come and I am not ready to cut the cord!! But he is ready. And so, here we go! I am trying to think of the positive and of course I am excited at the idea of having some one-on-one time with Blakely while Ryder is at school. We’ve never had time alone like that! So that will be fun and I’m looking forward to our girls days!

One thing I do get excited about with back-to-school is the clothes shopping! Holy smokes, so much fun dressing these little babies while they still let me! 🙂 If you’ve been following me for a while, then you already know I was obsessed with Freshly Picked moccasins when Blakely was a baby. And now they have hard-sole shoes for big kids! YAHOOOO! Aren’t these the cutest?!

I got Ryder this FP pair in black (I also want the tan ones) and he loves them! They are seriously the cutest!! And look at these adorable sandals. I mean, come on. I know Ryder will be wearing these hard sole Freshly Picked shoes almost every day. I love that they are comfy like a sneaker, but look dressed up. Ryder seriously loved them the second he saw them!

You have to scroll to the bottom to see my goofy kiddies! I love these pictures so much! Lisa does an amazing job capturing them and all their personality. 🙂 xo




This was Blakely’s face when I told her Ryder was going to school and leaving her at home three days a week. Ha!



They really do love each other. Best buddies. Safe to say Blakely is going to miss Ryder when he’s gone!!



Why is my baby so big?!?! Insert ugly CRYYYYYYYYY



Blakes attempting to practice her gymnastics. Ha! 🙂



I mean, they KILL ME!!
