Back-to-School Favorites

For the past few weeks we’ve been buying all the school supplies, new clothes, shoes and things to help make school days go more smoothly. Here are a few of our favorite back-to-school items…


We love High Sierra Backpacks, this year Abel needed a new bag so we got him the High Sierra Swoop backpack. It’s a great back for kids because it’s not too big but easily holds books, a laptop and school accessories.


I always get the boys a new pair of shoes before school starts and this year we bought a few pair of Nike Flex Runner shoes. I like that these are easy to slip on yet still a good athletic shoe. We also bought some Puma Softrider Rift Slip on shoes, Nike Star Runner 2 and Nike Revolution 5.


We love these Bentology Lunch Bags for the kids lunches. We don’t actually use the bento boxes but rather rubbermaid sectioned containers and they seem to work rather well. Each kids has a different design so it’s easy to tell them apart.

Water Bottles

For years we’ve use the Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water bottles with the sport capand we love them. They are durable and easy to clean.


This year our school district is requiring all students to wear masks indoors regardless of their vaccination status. Since we have 4 kids in school we’ve been stocking up on several different types of masks. Some of our kids prefer reusable masks and other prefer disposable masks. We tend to like

Apple Watch

My oldest son is going into 8th grade and while we’ve decided to not get him a cell phone until high school we did get him an Apple Watch with cellular. What we like about the Apple Watch is he has the capability to text or call us directly (no third party applications needed) and there are not distracting games. You can read more about our decision to buy the Apple Watch and see the fun scavenger hunt we sent him on in this post.
