A Thousand Word Thursday- Back to School Edition

And they're off!!!
Baby Girl didn't start school today, she just needed her book bag like Bo & Sassy!
Cheaper Than Therapy Did ya'll really think I was just going to post one picture from the 1st day of school?

I don't know what kind of face Sass is making, but how do you like that color? If you look close in the left top corner, you can see the color in the sunroom. And how much do ya'll love Sass's pink & green Polo tennis dress?

The Semi-Slackers are decked out in our back to school best. Retro wanted to know if we were going to a Ralph Lauren photo shoot or TWS.

And yes Gracie Beth & Preppy 101, I know I'm wearing Tennessee colors but they were all out of red & black. It's a medium if either of you need to borrow it for game day. ;)
Both of the children had great days & wonderful teachers! I'm so glad they enjoy school. The teacher gifts didn't arrive till this afternoon. I was kinda bummed, but they will be delivered to their teachers in the morning via the book bag.

Bo let me know when he was ready for me to leave. He all but pushed me out the door. It broke my heart, but also made it swell with pride all at the same time. He's officially a big boy now.

Sassy & Sweetie getting their flirt on with #2W & Little Sonny's. Well. I really don't know who was doing the flirting, but I've narrowed it down to Sass & #2W.

After school & a stop at the furniture store (more on that to come) we stopped for lunch at our favorite place, Chick-fil-a. We ran into several friends there (including Sweetie's fam) & the children had a blast! All the kids got free ice cream cones. How great is Chick-fil-a!?! Ya'll Northerners are missing out! It's better than grits & collard greens. Oh yeah. They had 1/2 day today.

We also saw my friend, Kate. Isn't she the best!?! I do hope ya'll are enjoying her bi-weekly guest posts. I know I am! Thanks Kate.

I was right about to comment on how good you look in orange when I read that! I think you are secretly a Vol! I think it is so funny that baby girl needed a bookbag too!

How cute! Y'all go back so early.
I so love Chick-Fil-A, I could never live up North!

Laura said...

I don't care what Bo says, I love the little Polo fam!! Great pics! Gosh, it just seems that ya'll start school so much earlier over there in Georgia!!

SarahHub said...

You guys look so cute!

And we just love Chick-fil-a!

Princess Freckles said...

Love the Semi-Slacker Polo theme! Too cute!

About Chick-Fil-A....I KNOW I'm missing out! I checked their website to see where they are in FL so I can finally eat there on my honeymoon. My fiance is very aware of my obsession with eating their and at Sonic, so he's on board. Last night he was telling me he booked our Disney dining reservations. There are two surprises for me (first and last night there). He said something laong the lines of the first night possibly being the best meal of the whole trip and I corrected hom that actually Chick-Fil-A will the be the best meal and whatever else will be second best! LOL!

That will be us in a month. I am not looking forward to it.

The outfits are great.

I love CFA but they don't have them up here in NY. If they open here, I'm sure we'd make it worth it for them, but until then...

KK said...

LOVE all the pink and green. I am jealouse about the Chick-Fil-A. Our closest is in a dorm at NYU--do you think i can pass as a co-ed?

I was about to comment on that beautiful color of orange you are sporting then I saw your note about being out of black and red. I decided to comment anyway. That color of orange looks wonderful on you :)

Your kids are looking absolutely adorable and preppy heading off to school!

Shannon said...

"Ralph Lauren photo shoot", LOL!

My kids start back on Wednesday (oh, happy day!)

Mrs4444 said...

Love the first day pics-They're awesome. Everyone looks great :)

Andrea said...

Just had to leave a GO VOLS! and agree with everyone who said that orange suits you wonderfully! Now you just need to pass that trend to your fellow Dawg fans. ;)

Off to find me one of those dresses! God bless Ralph!
