Miles is headed to his first year of preschool this year and I have very mixed emotions about it. Last year, Zoe went and Miles stayed home with me. So I was able to spend some one on one time with him and I worked too. With him in school I’ll have time to work, but I’ll also miss him. I miss both of them when they are gone and I was driving somewhere yesterday without either of them in the car and it was so quiet. Too quiet.
A friend told me that’s the hardest thing to deal with when they go to school is how quiet everything is. Oh…
He still has two weeks before school starts and his backpack from Lands’ End arrived. It’s awesome!
Kids can now customize their backpacks, lunch boxes and more with monograms, embroidery, heat transfers and numbers. Check out all the features in the photos below and notice how we got his name embroidered on it. Just in case you don’t want to get the embroidery feature, there is a tag on the inside that you can write your child’s name on.
I’m really impressed with the quality of the backpack. It’s quite sturdy and it’s on wheels so he can use it as a carry on for traveling. What’s even more impressive is that for a child’s luggage, the handle extends super long making it easier for an adult to lug it around. I love the blue camouflage and so does Miles. He’s super excited to use his new backpack and can’t wait for his first day of school. There are pockets inside and even a separate pencil holder that is attached to the backpack so it doesn’t get lost. Drink holders on the sides and plenty of storage for little kids. It’s a fantastic backpack.
