First up on my list of FAVORITES are my boys awesome teachers. I've bragged on her before, but y'all - she's amazing. She sends us pictures and I've been so impressed by the fun things they've been doing as part of their snow/ice unit. Here are a few highlights...
Making and examining snowflakes,
Picking up ice using a string and salt, making and playing with snow they made,
And how fun is this experiment with geometric solid shaped ice.
I have no idea how this even worked, but how awesome is this?!?!?!
Luke is inquisitive and always wants to know the "why and how" to things and his teacher engages and inspires him daily.
Mason's teacher is equally great and I love how she allows and encourages them to explore and investigate. She asked the parents for any old technology items we had at home/work and set up a center around it. When the kids wanted to see what was inside a keyboard she let McKinley open one up!
Mason was so excited about this! One of his FAVORITE moments from the week.
I mentioned it earlier this week, but our FAVORITE Junior went to Winter Formal last weekend and she was STUNNING!!! I mean! Can you even believe that this is the same sweet little eighth grader who started helping me out in the summer after Griffin was born??? She and her boyfriend are the sweetest!
I feel like all of you are invested in Anna Grace's formal dress choices as we all helped her pick her Prom dress last Spring :) I can guarantee you I didn't look half this pretty or sophisticated when I went to Winter Formals in high school. hahaha
While AG is looking all prettied up, I've been cozying up in comfy sweaters this week. This is the same sweater that I wore to Magnolia last weekend except I paired it with these white cords for work.
And since we're talking cozy sweaters, this open shoulder one arrived yesterday (I ordered several pieces from a sale a week or so ago) and so far I'm really liking it. I think the open shoulder detail is unexpected and cute. I'm wearing a small and think that it runs true to size. I've also been having a love affair with winter hats (which, I'm aware is ridiculous since I live in Texas) and so I snagged this one on sale and love the color.
The top is RIDICULOUSLY soft and drapes beautifully.
It's a boxy fit and I think that it runs true to size (a little big) as well.
And because the lighting is better outside, here's a more accurate idea of the actual colors.
One of my FAVORITE moments from the week? OWNING my to-do-list at school. BOOM!
Next up, I mentioned last week that Boden had their new Spring items out, and I couldn't resist this bunny dress.
These bunny shoes are GG's new FAVORITES and they look precious with the dress and these pants and bunny shirt as well. I am in NO RUSH for Spring, but when it gets here we'll be prepared ;)
Dave brought me my FAVORITE dessert earlier this week which is one of the reasons he's my FAVORITE ;) (It's a caramel sundae from McDonalds... their frozen yogurt is AMAZING!)
This sweet girls smiles are my FAVORITE...
... as are her serious faces ;)
And one of my FAVORITE local shops, Hippie Chick Boutique, got in lots of awesome new Spring arrivals. She gets new stuff all the time, so be sure to follow her on IG to keep updated!
Mason's art is one of my FAVORITES...
... and laying on the trampoline looking at the trees with her daddy is Griffin's.
I'm planning one of my FAVORITE things - A Family Book Club day centered around the book The Day It Rained Hearts. I'm hoping to have the post up the first week in February - just in time for Valentines Day.
Speaking of Valentine's Day - I have some fun things planned for my post on Monday, which means Erika and I are going to postpone our first "Let's Talk" link up until Tuesday. I can't wait to read about everyone's resolutions, goals and what you're looking forward to this year!
Happy Friday, friends!!!
