First Day of School

For them:

For me:









And yesterday’s little sprinkle of rain reminded me they’ve outgrown their rainboots.  I’m debating these:

or these:

I’ll be buying one pair in green and one pair in yellow.  Please weigh in.  I’d love some help.


  1. I’ve always wanted Hunter boots-not familiar with the other cuz I’m probably out of it- but the British Wellies (Hunter) are supposed to be great-they don’t leak, apparently. I’ve been trying to find them in adult sizes.

I just wish Hunter made some for adults with the extended shaft so I could be cool and wear boots like the boys. But alas, my larger than life calf muscles have again made me a style problem child.

  3. I’d vote for the Hunters. They look more “grown up” than the crocs … but the practical pig in me wants to point out that the charming white stripe on the crocs won’t stay white v. long. so hunter gets my vote.

  4. […] good thing is I now have a full week to figure out their first day of school pictures.  I could drag the chalkboard outside again like last year but it’s since been […]
