This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
When August hits every year I get a little sentimental. My kids aren’t even in traditional school yet, but it’s a time where a season comes to an end. I remember the feelings of anticipation I had as a child of something new. I remember trying to soak up every last minute of sunshine and swimming before it was gone. These same feelings are starting to come back! We’ve had such a busy summer, so I am determined to slow it down in August and knock some items off on our end of summer bucket list.
One of our bucket list items is back to school shopping!! This year my daughter was so excited to head to Carter’s to shop for back to school clothes. She went to preschool last year so she has a better understanding of what school means. Of course she picked out adorable girl outfits with her favorite color, PINK! One of her favorite tops was this floral ruffle tank.
Carter’s is a family favorite because it’s a one-stop-shop for us. We can find adorable and affordable clothes for IJ and Izzy all in one place. Their Back to School deals are amazing right now (see more below).
Also don’t miss the Carter’s coupon at the end of the post for your back to school shopping trip.
So here it is, our bucket list of simple and easy ways to connect as a family as summer comes to an end. You can download the list here to print and hang on your fridge.
