Fall Clothes Are Coming!

It may seem as if Fall weather is never coming our way, but maybe if we stock up on fun Fall clothing the weather will change. If you buy it, it will change. I mean it is worth a try. I love Fall clothing. The flannels, the jackets, the sweaters, and the boots. It screams comfort and simplicity to me. My kids love Fall just as much as I do and we spend a lot of time outdoors even in the cooler weather. I try to make sure they have plenty of warm comfortable clothes they can play in. Thank goodness for the Eland & American Vintage line. Their clothes are simple, warm, and casual. They are perfect for a Fall afternoon outdoors.

Boys Henley Waffle Weave Shirt by E-Land: This henley is made of waffle weave cotton. It is so comfortable it almost makes me wish I could wear my sons clothes. It is perfect for cooler weather and long days in the yard or walks to the playground.

Boys’ Motorcycle Shirt by American Vintage: My little guy loves motorcycles. He thinks that they are the coolest thing in the world and wants one already. That is a big no on the mom-dar for me, but at least he can have a fun shirt that shows off his love of two-wheels.

Boys’ Chino Pants by American Vintage: Camouflage pants are all the rage in our house. Grandpa loves them, and that means little man loves them. So we try to make sure to always have at least one pair on hand.

Boy’s Canvas Barn Jacket by Eland Kids: Daddy, Grandpa, and Papa all have their own Barn jackets, so of course little man needs one too. He just loves running around the yard with all his favorite men in his matching Barn Jacket.

End of Summer Art

Summer is coming to an end, but one last great summer art project is exactly what we all need. This art project is perfect for homeschool elementary projects, toddlers, or kids that just love a really great art project.

Sunflowers bloom so beautifully at the height of summer here in SoCal. They can be seen in yards, on the sides of the road, and out in the fields. They really do brighten a person’s day with their regal height and bright colors.

I am always sad to see the last of them bloom at the end of our summer. Now with this fantastic little art project they can bloom in my house all September long.

Thank you to Glued to My Crafts for such a fun and simple project. It will keep my days sunshiny and bright all month long! Head on over to Glued to My Crafts for the full tutorial.

Back-to-School Lunches

Children everywhere are back to school this month. That means parents everywhere are back to making lunches and arguing over homework. We may not be able to help with the homework, but we can help you come up with some new ideas that will make lunch-packing a little less stressful.

PBJ Burrito: My son loves PBJ. He even does a little song and dance about it when he opens his lunch every day. I love giving him what he wants, but I hate to give him the same thing every day. This option makes his lunch a little different, but it still supplies his favorite ingredients.

Homemade Lunchable: My daughter loves lunchables, but I hate buying them. This option allows me to place items in her lunch that are a little healthier, but still caters to the types of food she likes.

Mac n Cheese: Since I am gluten-free we do not consume Mac n Cheese much at home. By making a box and packing it in thermoses for my kids they can still enjoy their favorite without it interfering too much in my meals. It also packs easily and tastes good whether it is warm or cold.
