It’s almost time for back to school! I always have such mixed feelings about this time of year. On one hand, admittedly I’m getting tired of bickering and kids in my space 24-7, but on the other hand I really enjoy my kids company 95% of the time. When they go back to school it gets awfully quiet around here. But it’s good. They get back to their friends and learning, and I can get back to uninterrupted work!
This year for some of our back to school essentials I’ve teamed up with Canadian Tire and Sport Chek! This is a really great fit for us because I do 80% of our back to school clothes shopping for the kids at Sport Chek anyway. In fact, I shop online at Sport Chek all year…it’s easy and everything comes super fast. They have all the styles that the kids are into, and I can get most of what they need there including backpacks, indoor and outdoor shoes, coats, pants, sweaters, and hoodies. The kids are happy and I’m happy.
We also got to choose some really great office furniture from the Canadian Tire CANVAS product line, that will be for our middle son, who is moving into his own room before school starts. Now he’ll have his own space to do his school work which is really important for this junior high kid!
Here are some of their new back to school clothes! This year it’s all about sports wear, which is great because we’re an active family! New shoes, pants, bags, vests, sweaters…they’re all ready to go. Even the dog. 😉
My beautiful daughter is all set for school this year with comfy, casual and stylish clothes that teenage girls love!
These Nike Women’s Free RN FlyKnit 2017 Running Shoes are her fave. I might steal them from her when she’s not looking!
And our really active sports kid loves all his new clothes, especially his new Puma Shoes! Comfortable and practical which is perfect for teenage boys. This mom approves.
He’s also loving this Nike Duffel Bag…he started back up with fall rugby so this is perfect for all his gear!
And our little guy! He’s at that age where he wants to be like his big brother and pick out his own clothes. Lucky for him there are a tonne of choices for his size at Sport Chek. He’s happy that he looks like a big kid now.
Packed and ready to go. This Under Armour backpack can hold a tonne of stuff!
Ask them how they really feel about back to school? They’re not so sure, but they sure do look great!
But I’m not going to lie…I’m stealing that white chair for my office! How awesome is it?!
So now we’re ready for back to school! Only 1 week left and it’s back to routine around here. I hope your back to school time is a success!
Happy Back To School!
