It’s that time of year again…summer is winding down and back to school is approaching. This year my kiddos don’t go to school until the last week of August. I don’t think it’s ever been this late before, but I’m not complaining. All of their school supplies are packed and ready for Open House Night and their school
clothes uniforms are being shipped. But there’s still some back to school shopping to do.
Because my kids wear school uniforms they show their personality with their shoes and bookbags. We recently went to get them started with school shoes at Foot Locker. I don’t find it necessary to buy all of their shoes at once. I decided to pace myself and get them some more in a month or so. Jordan’s birthday and Christmas will be here soon and they always get shoes at Christmas. We took the kids to pick out what they wanted, which I’m glad because Bri doesn’t like what I like and vice versa. So she got these cute pink/blueAir Jordan hightops. They were on sale (my favorite) and I like them.
Me and Bri went off to get her fitted and wait for the SA (sales associate) to bring us the ones for her to try on and left Jordan and DH to fend for themselves. I came back to them and they found these blue shoes that they both loved. I’m very plain Jane when it comes to sneakers, think Air Force Ones and that’s me. I didn’t even let them convince me how cool these shoes were I just let them do their male thing. Of course they weren’t on sale. Of course they were more than I’d spend on my sneakers. But they made my main man smile so at this point, what difference does it make? They are the Nike Kyrie 2. Whatevs. I’m just glad he found a pair of shoes he likes.
We’re still looking for a bookbag that Jordan likes but we found one Bri likes at JcPenney. I like getting her bookbags from there. I usually get them on a great sale and cute design but with extra padding than I would find at say Walmart for example. She picked this one, not me, she said “I’m going to middle school I have to step up my style”. Insert eye roll here. It’s cute and has enough pockets and padding and was $21 after sales and coupons.
While we were in the mall she wanted to stop at Justice. She is a tween after all. So I walked in with her while the guys waited patiently outside the store. I was drawn to all the cute shoes. And I knew I would either be back or online soon to order her some. So looks like I need to sign up for their emails since that’s someplace she likes a lot. It’s cool though because I found a lot of great gift ideas for Christmas : )
