School Supplies

Remember the excitement of Back-to-school? I used to pack and re-pack my bookbag ZILLIONS of times those last few weeks of summer. I loved the smell of new pink erasers, crisp new notebooks, picture-perfect crayons and assignment notebooks. Ted has had his sweet little 'toddler backpack' since Caterpillars, but a 'real' folder won't fit in it, so we need to upgrade to a real backpack for Kindergarten. Since I am both frugal and eco-conscious, I want this backpack to last a long time. His lunchbox/bag from has lasted 2 full school years. He'll be taking that to Kindergarten too. I ordered him this backpack from L.L.Bean. It's very similar to his toddler backpack which he has never complained about. If he wants Star Wars or Bionicles or whatever, Wendy told me that her friend Crissy's son personalizes his backpacks with 'tags' that are themed, so that sound fun to me! She also said there is some kind of Lego keychain thing, so I'll have to investigate that too.

We'll go school supply shopping sometime soon. K/1 has quite a long list. Nothing seems to be very individual, so I think K/1 share everything. He'll have to wait a few years for a 'pencil box.' And an assignment notebook.
