Back to School with Kickers

The beginning of September firmly feels like the door closing on Summer and opening into a new stage of the year; Autumn and Winter approaching and a brand new academic year.  This can bring a mixture of emotions; from parents' relief after a long, perhaps trying spell of the kids at home, to anxiety and sadness for mums and dads seeing their little one entering a new stage of their life.  We are very much the latter, with Jonah starting in Foundation on Monday and the 'back to school to-do list,' is very new to me.

Jonah's Summer Wardrobe

As our holiday in France approaches, I thought I would share with you what our summer picks for Jonah have been.  Jonah is 4 so these items are all in age 4-5 but are available in a range of sizes.  All of the links to each item are below the VLOG.  I'm pretty new to this vlogging game and so please if you like what you see, please hit the like button and subscribe to stay in the know about what is to come!  Keep your eyes peeled for Winter's Summer Wardrobe next week!
