Back to School means so many things for our family this year, as a whole and for each individual and we might all need a little extra dose of courage for Back to School 2018! I need all the tips on how to make moving to a new place right before school easier, more peaceful, or even fun for the kids. It might keep me up at night a little. We’ve started attending church in our new area, meeting up with a couple people nearby that have kids around their age, hopefully that will help! Gonna choose to have peace and trust that everything will work out! Serenity now, right? (I’ll never forgive myself that this photo is blurry! Hayes was doing this pose and Raleigh came, sat down to copy him. Dead!)Moving to a new place, new school, where my kids don’t know anyone just yet is full of unknowns and neither of my kids do well with that! Callum goes from Kindergarten (half day) to a full day of school, and cafeteria lunch, so that’s a big transition for him, too! Raleigh won’t know what to do without his brothers all day and even Russ and I have lots of personal + professional transitions to manage, too!It might sound superficial, but one of my favorite things about clothing is how it can instantly give you a dose of courage and confidence. So we’re taking all we can get this year!! Giving my kids the reigns to find the pieces that make them feel like they can walk new halls and smile at new faces and know that they’ve got this! They can do this! And even kids that aren’t new get nervous, too! So they can be a friend to others instead of waiting for someone to find them.We’ve teamed up with Rack Room Shoes for several Back to School seasons now and I love that they have great prices and huge collection of options for the whole family! I love that they’re active in charity work called Shoes That Fit. They have donated 250,000 pairs to children in need Here’s what everyone chose!
