A friend texted me this morning: "Good summer?"
My reply: "Summer was lovely - not quite ready to give it up. You?"
I love the long, lingering days of summer. I like the sunshine and flip flops, the magnificent monsoons and accompanying splashing in the rain, the ice cream cones and crisp salads. Also - the grocery stores laden with ripe apricots, sweet peaches, and juicy nectarines...for under $1/lb!
Even so, I also get excited about brand new school supplies. Researching the latest pencils, crayons, notebooks, and homeschool products is actually a relaxing pastime for me (the same cannot be said for the shopping part).
As a result, I am pleased to bring you Metropolitan Mama's Back-To-School Guide for 2016. You'll find my favorite picks for school uniforms, backpacks, lunch boxes, and more. This year, we have a 4th grader, 2nd grader, preschooler, and a baby on the way (due in two weeks!).
Bookmark/pin this post as I will include all back-to-school features here for your convenience.
