My sweet boy headed back to school this week and I can’t even believe it’s already the start of another school year! Seriously where does time go! Anyway I thought I would share some of his favorite back to school items. The book “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School” is a must! -xo
We’ve been u-pick farming it up here in the mid south and with summer break coming to an end, we hit one last u-pick farm this past week to harvest the last of the summers blueberries and peaches! Asher’s loves all of the summer adventures that the season brings, especially picking his favorites fruits and veggies, and I can’t wait to take him back this fall to go apple, pear and pumpkin picking! I think it’s safe to say that I’ve got a freezer full of fresh fruit to last us the rest of the year!
Living back in the South this summer has been so different than being up North. I’m not going to lie, I sure do miss those mild, humidless, North Dakota summer days. Memphis is HOT. And trying to stay cool on these crazy warm summer days has been challenging, especially when you have a little one who refuses to wear sleeveless tops and requests to wear tennis shoes 24/7. Luckily one of my favorite brands, KEEN, makes a fantastic kids shoe line that is perfect for active kiddos. This summer we tried out their new UNEEK line and I must say, we are huge fans! These shoes have been a favorite of Asher’s and I love how functional, cool and stylish they are!
I’m quite persnickety when it comes to Asher’s shoes. With him being a rough and tough little boy who loves to jump in puddles, climb rocks, ride his cars and attempt to swing from tree branches, I always put him in things that are durable and will last. KEEN’s UNEEK shoe is just that and some. They are durable and comfortable with just the right amount of protection for his little feet. The elastic strap makes it easy for him to slip on and adjust. If a tennis shoe and a sandal had a baby, the UNEEK would definitely be it! My favorite thing about these shoes are that they keep his feet cool on these hot summer days! No more stinky tennis shoes! I love the versatility that these shoes provide and how easy they are to clean! A little dish soap and the garden hose and they are like new again!
A huge thank you to KEEN for letting us try out their new UNEEK line!
