Back to School in Full Swing and Farley's Currently

It was another wild long weekend to unofficially close out the summer.

A family day on the Cape Friday, ice cream and cow pastures Saturday, an afternoon in the city spent fence painting, playing in a bubble pool, playground hopping, and taking in the many sights and sounds of Beantown on Sunday, and end-of-summer steals and family time today made for one heck of a weekend.

Here's a flashback to my (short) first few days with the kiddos.

First day!

Back-to-school goodies for my school family... 
(Most, if not all, of these gift tags/printables can be found on my "Gift It" Pinterest board.)

  1. Wow! You are a GREAT gift giver! I'm so impressed! And it looks like you had a lovely Labor Day weekend as well. I hope your second week of school goes just as great as the first! :)

  2. I love ALL of those gifts! Those are all fantastic ideas! Now I feel like I should have something for my teammates tomorrow. It's never too late for Dunkin', right?

    I workout before school and it makes all the difference in the world because the only excuse I can come up with to skip it after school is that I need more sleep. I tried to do it after school, but I could always come up with something. I'll get back in to my routine next week. Tomorrow is my first day, and I've got to make it through this week waking up at 5:00 before I can adjust my alarm clock to even earlier!
