hey all! i’m back from a long weekend away at my parents’ lake house. it was the perfect setting to recharge and relax before this week – its gonna be a crazy one! my oldest started first grade today and my middle is starting pre-k at home with me tomorrow, along with my first grader homeschooling tomorrow. are you confused about how we do school here? my oldest goes to a classical school 2 days a week and is home the other 3. its fantastic – check it out here. a funny sidenote: i was pumping up my middle, lily, tonight about starting pre-k tomorrow. all the kids were jumping on the beds (yes, we allow that) yelling, “PRE-K! PRE-K!” when i noticed my 2 year-old, silas, was shouting, “PRE-CAKE! PRE-CAKE!” no wonder he was so excited! he thinks we’re having cake tomorrow!
also in on this busy week: my shop’s 1st anniversary! i’m shocked by this in 2 ways – 1: it seems like i just started this crazy thing, but 2: it also feels like i’ve had this shop for years. crazy! (btw – who starts an online shop the first week of school? i’m a nut) so i think this calls for a sale! how about 20% off your entire purchase? i’ll let it run through the long weekend and end it on monday night. go ahead, do a little early labor day weekend shopping. or wish me happy anniversary by filling your cart to the brim with pleated poppy goodies – headbands, posies, crayon rolls & checkbook covers. enter HAPPY as the coupon code at checkout.
