Back to School Essentials: Kindergarten Here We Come!

Well, here we are.  The first day of kindergarten for these two ladies.  They marched straight into their classrooms (separate classrooms, that is) with all the confidence in the world.  I’m so proud of them, and also really glad that first day was a huge success.

We love our new school, and the teachers are already such blessings for our family.  We feel like we’ve hit the jackpot.

So, if you are still searching for the back to school essentials, let me help you out with a couple of items we’ve tested.  These will go down as some of my best ‘finds’ this year.  If they can pass the test of these 6 year olds, trust me, they are good.

The backpack of all backpacks!  The Kanken Mini.  It’s the perfect size for kindergarten through second grade.  Love them.  And thanks to our friend Russell for sending them our way.

And this lunchbox has saved our lives.  The Bentgo.  We’ve put everything you can imagine into those little compartments…and no leaks.  The individual compartment seals keep everything in.  Seriously, no leaks.  I also ordered the extra inserts so we can prepare two rounds of lunches at a time.

And lastly, this terrific waterbottle from Thermos.  This bottle keeps the water cool all day with one ice cube.  The cube doesn’t even melt.  Not sure how it works, but we’re going with it.

To those sweet Moms and Dads of kindergartners – it’s going to be a terrific year!  We got this.

My best to you,
