We also asked mom to answer a few questions about the upcoming back to school season and her kids:
What are you most looking forward to as your kids start school again?
“A routine! And for the kids to see their friends again and carve a little place for themselves that’s just theirs.”
What’s one word you would use to describe each of your kids?
“Luke: innovative. Abel: tenderhearted. Cole: confident.”
How do your kids express themselves with clothing? How would you describe their style?
“My kiddos wear a lot of hand-me-downs, so generally I would say we look for well-made clothing that can last three times over. Luke is creative, so he likes to mix prints. Abel is pretty conservative, so he gravitates towards basics and neutrals. Cole is in a dress phase, so she loves anything she can twirl in!”
