Today is Bodhi’s first last day of preschool. What does that mean? He’ll be going to preschool again this fall, but will spend the summer at his school’s “summer camp” which is basically a super fun program with lots of time swimming and playing in the sprinkler, riding bikes, going on field trips, yoga, art classes and more. His beloved teacher is also taking the summer off, so while he’s excited for a week off next week, he’s also a little sad about having a different teacher for the summer.

While I knew my son grew this year, this photo shows a dramatic change in Bodhi. He went from a toddler to a big kid in nine short months. Oh, and we grew a baby between these two photos too. No joke! This was pretty much the length of our pregnancy. Kind of a fun note. :)

We have all sorts of fun summer plans and we’ll have my husband home for six weeks on paternity leave. It’s going to be SO nice! We (both B and I) are super excited to share with you a fun modern find that is perfect for summer road trips, cabin weekends or mornings on the porch. This product is seriously brand new!

Giant Super has designed a gorgeous  super-deluxe set of flash cards for children learning their ABCs. These beautiful animal illustrations are unlike anything else I’ve found for B. You can take your child on a journey through the alphabet with this set of animal illustration flash cards. 26 sturdy cards depict an animal for each letter of the alphabet making learning the ABCs tactile, playful and fun. And B is a HUGE animal lover, so these are great for our family.

The man behind this cards says that these animals were originally illustrated for his own son when he was teaching him his ABCs. They were lovingly designed with simple shapes and bright colors to be graphic and fun to look at. When other parents kept making requests to have him print copies for their kids, he decided to have them professionally produced and they just did a small run in the past few weeks. How cool is that? I love when parents find a passion in their kids’ interests.


And Giant Super has offered a set of flash cards to one lucky Live the Fancy Life reader! These would make a great gift or would be a sweet addition to any modern home.
