1. Final Manicure as no nail polish is allowed at school.
2. Get used to school shoes, which actually means "tap" dancing in them all over the house.
3. Deciding on what she wants to take for lunch on the first day...this decision alone with take DAYS.
4. And most of all trying to fit in all of her favorite summer eats one more time before school starts. Tonight we had our pink and green dinner. Now before you start thinking we served a meal on Lilly Pulitzer plates (which we actually did) with pink and green napkins (guilty as charged) it really means Mr. G grilling salmon outside while I roasted broccoli in the oven. Pink and Green.
Tomorrow morning will make her favorite summer dessert. It is most certainly not for breakfast, but we will be sharing half of the pan (if not more) with the crew that is building our house. Mini K has named this recipe CLEAN SMORES. Which means I need to explain: Mini K and Baby C LOVE to make smores, but they are not fans of the broken graham crackers. So what's a mom to do when a broken dessert can leave minnies tired from a day of swimming and playing outside in tears over a broken cracker? Well, you just pour yourself a glass of wine and click on over to Pinterest.
