****GIVEAWAY CLOSED – WINNER IS GRACE OF FORMERLY GRACIE****
The B Man started school yesterday.
Okay, I know it’s not THAT big of a deal to be in the first grade but he is my first child to go to full-time school and each grade is new and exciting! Each year he just seems to get bigger and wiser. This morning there was no complaining or anything of the sort. He ate breakfast, put on his uniform outfit, made sure he had everything and Tim took him off to school.
Like A BIG boy. *sigh*
Yesterday I met his teacher and I really liked her. Although our meeting was brief, her classroom was beautifully organized and she just seemed so fabulous. And, I ran into his Kindergarten teacher that morning, walking her dog (she lives one street up from us!) and I told her who his teacher was and she said I was going to love her. So…
Anyway, I know he was excited to go and part of that excitement always comes from getting his school supplies.
Last week I received a “goody bag” of school items from Staples, including some of their “green items” made from recycled materials as well as some notebooks and folders from their new “Do Something” line, which encourages kids to get involved in volunteer projects around their community, including school supply drives.
The boys favorite items included were a pencil shapener – “It’s Green!” and a calculator that looks like a little dude playing soccer. It has “feet” that help it stand up and everything. The B Man kept doing “calculations” on it and adding numbers over and over. He thought that is was really cool and even took it in the car several times to “play” with!
Hey, the kid was kinda doing math, in the Summer. Works for me!
And since Back to School is still around the corner for many, it’s wonderful that Staples is kind enough to offer one of you a $25 gift card and help out with the Back to School shopping that you need to do!
If you’d like to win just leave a comment telling me who you are sending off to school this year and what they are most excited for when going back.
For a second entry simply tweet about this giveaway and leave a separate comment saying you did so.
Giveaway ends next Friday, August 20 when a winner will be picked via random.org.
Good Luck and happy Back to School-ing!
