summer is officially over at our house. the fall semester at adam’s school started on monday, so he’s off to his toddler program once again. and while a backpack isn’t yet a requirement at his age, and my own school days are well behind me, i still couldn’t resist getting matching backpacks to welcome the fall season. because really, whether you’re 2 or 32 (cough), headed to play school or high school, a backpack will always come in handy. so of course, i was very excited to partner with my friends at backpacks.com to share my personal experience. with a new baby to look after, i’ve got tons more stuff i need to bring with me for pretty much any excursion out of the house, so my new strategy involves two backpacks: one for myself filled with diapers and baby things, and one for adam so he can bring along anything he might want or need. he loves packing his bag before we head out, and toting it around with him wherever he goes. and it helps to lighten my own load just a little bit.
since i was feeling a bit nostalgic thinking about back-to-school times, i took a browse through the student collection. and while i was tempted to pick up a jansport like the one i carried as a kid, i got way too excited when i spotted the fjallraven kanken mini backpack in just the right size for adam. and of course, i got a fjallraven kanken laptop backpack for myself. i love the style of them for their simple design and cute little fox logo, but i also appreciate that they’re made of a sturdy, water-repellant fabric that is nearly indestructible. of course, if you’re looking for something different, backpacks.com has you covered. whether you’re headed back-to-school, back to the office, or on a hiking adventure, they’ve got backpacks that will suit your needs. us? our journey has us headed to nursery school, play dates at the park, and grandma’s house.
