Back To School Supplies

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

In just a few weeks the children will be heading back to school. There are a lot of nerves and excitement in our house about the prospect of the new school year. Gracie only had three weeks in her new school at the end of last term and it will be brand new for Zach when he starts Year 1 in September. We are hoping Elsie will start shortly afterwards if a place becomes available for her in our new local school. With all of the stress of moving and sorting schools I have left a lot of my school shopping until last minute. I grabbed most of the uniform last week in Sainsbury's while they had 25% off clothing.

All three children have lovely new school shoes courtesy of Get The Label, you can take a look and read the review here. They have also received some lovely items from a few of our favourite brands which we wanted to share with you. In the picture above you will see Zach's amazing new personalised water bottle from itsyourstory. He got to choose a character from a wide range including a monkey,  fireman, footballer, cowboy and many more but he chose the cheeky monkey because it was funny. I uploaded a photo file during the order process and now he has his very own 'cheeky monkey Zachary' bottle. He absolutely loves it and can't wait to take it to school with him.

Gracie has been really enjoying creative writing recently so was amazed at the contents of our Smiggle delivery. She now has a lovely 'Now You See Me Twin Zip Pencil Case' in purple to store all of her pencils and colouring pencils along with a lovely sequin mermaid notepad to jot down ideas and stories in. She seems to come home from school really inspired by what she is learning so it will be really nice for her to be able to come home and let her creative juices flow with her new stationery. 

Another item from our Smiggle goody bag was this water bottle. Although Zach was photographed with it when it arrived, it seems Elsie has taken a liking towards it so has decided that as Zach has a water bottle already, she should have the cool space water bottle. This comes in lots of different designs and colours.

All we need now is to get back in our house in time for the new school year and a phone call to say Elsie can start too!
