i always get excited preparing for a new school year when i was a student. fresh new notebooks, pencils, cool backpacks etc. were a thrill to have. there weren't as much fancier choices back then but nowadays, the coolest newest trendiest stuff for the classroom are available even for the pickiest student.
this weekend, texas enjoys a tax-free shopping weekend and i think i'm taking advantage of it by stocking up on a few of these for the little one (or me!).
