School starts August 15th this years from the 2013-14 school year. We’re going for a more “mature” theme for the kids. Well, at least something that doesn’t scream “I’m a little kid.” Madison is going into 5th Grade, and Ethan’s going into 3rd, so it fits. We let them choose most of their supplies, the ones that can be customized. Madison is going for a pink and purple theme. Ethan’s is more neutral, but VERY boy, 😆
They have great taste, I think. Madison originally wanted a $35 backpack. At this point in time, she doesn’t need that. Maybe middle school, when she’ll be bringing home mountains of homework. High school, she’s probably going to end up with an almost hiking-style backpack. Poor kid!
Ethan was super excited to find a camouflage one. I like that it was pixelized grays, and not the traditional brown or green version of camo. Just looks better to me.
Their lunchboxes match as well. Plenty of packing space, and we’ll be able to do more fun lunches if they want, with a variety of lunchbox-size containers. I’m excited about that! So are they. The lunchbags also
Part of the supplies a 5th grader needs. Not shown is her cupcake USB-drive, her purple earbuds, and her SIX unique to her folders 😆 She has 4 notebooks, 3 are purple, print and plain, and one is black and white polka dots. She has a purple bendy ruler, colored pencils, and highlighters. The funny thing? She’s most excited to use PENS for school 😆
