It’s back to school for the little ones. It’s time to brush off the back packs from summer travel and sharpen those pencils. This year promises to be a new one as we watch our children laugh, grow and age.
As the anticipation mounts, so do the school shopping lists. From the standard pencils, composition notebooks and folders, to fun pencil cases, backpacks and lunch totes, it’s easy to forget some of the items we need most to prep our children for the year ahead!
