Eek!!! Kelsey starts school soon! We are getting ready around here. I just downloaded the school supply list, ordered her backpack + lunchbox and started getting super excited for this big milestone in her life.
Ryan thinks $100 is ridiculous to spend on a backpack, lunchbox and water bottle but if he had it his way she would bring a paper sack to school (“What?” he’d say, “It’s cheaper.”) Kelsey and I had fun shopping for her backpack. We looked at over 15 styles and in the end, she decided on this horse backpack, water bottle and matching lunchbox.
I found the chalkboard first day of school printable on Etsy that I’m excited to use to snap a pic of Kelsey on her first day. I see parents doing that all the time and I think that’s such a wonderful keepsake to have – a photo of her on her first day and her last of kindergarten. I wonder if I’ll do this for all of my kids, or if this is just a first-time-mom thing. The print is here if you want it – only $7 for the digital download.
