Back To School

August 6th, 2008 - By Stephanie Precourt

School starts just 2 weeks and I CAN NOT WAIT! We had registration yesterday- it was fun finding out who the boys’ teachers would be and we met their new principal (who is fabulous and young and stylish and super nice… love her already!) We have all the school supplies (yet they still need to be labeled… anyone want to come help me label a gazillion pencils and markers with my kids’ names?) But I’m still looking for that 8 pack of Crayola Twistables in normal colors. If you’ve seen them- let me know!

We came home from registration and the boys immediately wanted to play school. Even Gray put on his little backpack and they were ready. Noah has a new backpack this year- he is a big second grader now- and this new backpack is one of the sturdiest and most stylish I’ve seen for his size- thanks to Lands’ End .

My favorite feature of the Cordura StudyHaul backpack [$39.50], aside from the tremendous quality Lands’ End is known for, has to be the size - not too bulky and large so that it swallows him up, but still very deep and wide at the top to hold all his stuff. Because even second graders bring home lots of stuff!

Win! I’ve got a Lands’ End Cordura StudyHaul backpack in garnet to giveaway for your back to schooler! Just leave a comment here and I’ll choose one winner at random from the comments on Sunday August 10, 2008. Winner will be announced here and Prizey Winners by Monday August 11. Open to US & Canada residents only. Contest is now closed.

Congrats to Tesa!
