Back To School Favorites
BACK TO SCHOOL FAVORITES
School is just right around the corner! Top thought when I think of school starting? How on earth are we going start getting up at 6 am again? My kids are on major summer time still! Okay, so am I, but we need to get it together people. In the meantime, something I would much rather get together is school gear. I guess it must be the nostalgia, but I just love looking at Back-To-School gear! I have some serious Pinterest boards going. I remember how excited I was for a fresh year ahead. Getting to see friends you haven’t seen all summer and some of the ones you were with every day. New classes, new teachers, new school year, and new school “stuff”. With my own kids, so much has changed in a year, as far as interests and especially their opinions on style. They like to be involved with picking out their essentials and often plop down on my lap at the computer and approve or nix certain things. My main job is to make sure the stuff is going to hold up the year through, because last year I sort of gave in and let them get a lot of character stuff of lesser quality and we had to throw a bunch of items out mid year. I definitely enjoy seeing them express themselves and finding what appeals to them now. I’m going to soak in this time of being involved in this process, because I know the time is coming soon where I will look like one big nerd mom to them. But for now, I’m still on the cool list and I’m gonna run with it!!
Here are some of our Back-To-School picks:
