It's true. Summer is winding down. My kids only have a few more weeks until the school doors open back up. This means that we still have some time to enjoy our freedom. We have a few plans. Of course we will be swimming in the pool everyday. We may go see another movie or two. We love to go to the movie theater! Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana is calling to us (mainly the kids), so that is also on the agenda.
These next few weeks will also include getting ready to go back to school. Shopping for supplies and new shoes that will fit feet that have grown two sizes over the summer.
Since our family is going green one thing we will be trying to do is buy less and reuse what we already have. There is really no need to buy new book bags if the ones the kids have are in good shape. Plus, we won't be going out to buy a bunch of back to school clothes. Sure, I like my kids to look cute and all that, but really is it so necessary when going to school. Our school has a blacktop parking lot that the students play on during recess. Which means that clothes get ruined faster... blacktop stains on knees!
I will purchase some lunch supplies. This year my goal is to send the kids to school with litter free lunches. There are all kinds of ways to have a litter free lunch. Even products you can use so you don't have to buy and use plastic baggies. They are called snackTaxis. This product will be so handy and not just for school lunches. You could use it for food but also for other things.
Check out the website (shown above) to see the different styles and colors they have. I am really excited about getting these for my family. Just think of how many little baggies we use and then throw away. With the snackTAXI you can be green and stylish at the same time. How cool is that?
Now, I must go because summer isn't over quite yet and we have a ton of stuff to do. Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation. Make many memories with your family!
