Back-to-School shopping is my FAVOURITE time of year, maybe its because its Fall or because the weather changes so drastically. I never feel much like Spring is the start of anything new. Fall, back-to-school, boot weather, that is the real change for me. I can smell it coming and it makes me giddy for what is around the corner. Pumpkin pie and walking on crunchy leaves. Snow and Santa.
This year is even more special heading into Johannes’ first year of Kindergarten. His uniform will be all ready for him and picked out, his shoes will be clean and new. He’ll have his big-boy back pack and a lunch box. Cue tears.
Last week we took him shoe shopping. We made it fun, left Magnus with my parents and took him to The Shoe Company by their house to pick up a pair of indoor and a pair of outdoor shoes for his uniform. No sooner had we entered the store when Johannes bee-lined it for a pair of Spiderman Lightup shoes. I’m not sure why I was surprised, he is a kid after all. What I was super happy to see was what an awesome selection of velcro shoes they had! For every pair of lace-up shoes, there was an exact pair with velcro for the little guys who don’t quite get the loops and knots concept.
We had a lot of fun and our shopping trip was successful. I feel like we’re constantly buying him new shoes throughout the year since he grows so quickly, so affordability was really important to us. The Shoe Company is still having their BOGO event, when you purchase one pair you get the second for 25% off, so we were able to give in to ALL of his wants this time around.
Two weeks to go! Next up….uniform pants, shirts, socks and sweaters!
Oh and of course, the winner! Nicola Zacheja Congratulations!!!!
