I can’t believe our Summer has come to an end. I honestly feel like it flew by this year. This morning I will take Sterling to his first day of kindergarten. Thank goodness they let us walk them in the first week although I am terrified I am going to start bawling the moment I get to his classroom. He is ready but I am not. This is my first born, my baby and I am not quite ready for this step. For 5 years he has been my side kick and while I will be happy for some alone time and one on one time with Frances I will dearly miss him. But alas this is part of life and having kids. You have to let them grow up a little.
This past week I really tried to spend some one on one time with Sterling. I sent Frances to stay with my parents for a few days so I could focus on just him before school started.
We hit up the Riverbank Zoo which was really fun. The kids loved seeing all the animals. The Riverbanks zoo was nice because you could navigate thru there fairly quickly and it was an easy day trip from Charleston. We toured the zoo in about 2 hours then had a delicious lunch at Dipratos!
We loved the lion and flamingos, they were our favorite animals.
and this little monkey loved Sterling, he got right up to the glass to look at him.
After the zoo my mom took Frances back to Charlotte and I had two and half days just with Sterling.
We enjoyed a few meals out which was so nice because Frances is difficult to dine out with these days. We saw the Minions movie and did some back to school shopping.
Enjoyed a beautiful evening walk.
We also hit up our pool.
Cooked two of my favorite meatless meals. Matt and I have still been trying to eat primarily vegetarian meals and we are feeling really good.
My parents brought Frances back in town so we got to spend time with them as well.
We always love happy hour on their deck.
Wearing Free People Dress.
Ended our weekend labeling things and getting ready for school.
The labels are Minted, they are waterproof and so awesome.
Good Luck this week Mamas.
