back to school {with Martha} {and a $50 giftcard to staples!}

In many ways I love back to school.  Routine, schedule, supplies and lunches.  I love it all really.  I'm a sucker for back to school supplies, the more fun the better! 
I was recently sent a lovely box of goodies from Martha Stewart and Avery and I loved each and every one of them! It was just the kick start I needed to get organized and get ready for a great school year! :)
Marthas supplies are always so pretty, I love this shade of green.  Perfect for all those school forms, calenders, etc! 
 Rainbows?  Yes, please! :) What can't I organize with theses?
Who doesn't love chalkboard labels?  What a fun way to give a gift!  I added these to cookie packages that I gave to the boys teachers last year! 
Rainbow tabs?  I love them.  The colors of all of these supplies are so pretty and fun!  How can you not want to get organized and ready for back to school?

Want a little help with that "back to school organization"?  Well, Martha and Avery would like to give one of you $50 to Staples to help with just that! :)

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you are looking forward to this school year!  Me?  I'm looking forward to field trips and new friends! :)

I'll choose a winner at the end of the week!

I'm looking forward to fall, when the season changes, leaves fall, pumpkin-everything comes out, and wearing an oversized college hoodie is appropriate!

I love new school supplies too. I am looking forward to lesson planning for student teaching in the spring.

I love everything about heading back to school. I'm a teacher and my favourite part of the new year is the fresh start and many possibilities that are before me. I love not knowing what the next 10 months will bring.

I am so looking forward to sleep. I am an RN who worked from 7p-7a a couple times a week. so during the summer I don't get any sleep but now that they are back in school I might get 4 1/2 hrs of solid sleep. I am going to miss them during the day but I will enjoy my sleep! :0)
I would love to get organized with those cool supplies!!

This year I am looking forward to my daughter starting soccer! It's very low-key in 1st grade, and I think she will enjoy getting to run around for a bit each Saturday morning with her friends!

Help guide the younger students.

I'm excited for the school year to start, so I will have a few hours to focus on my younger kiddos while their big brother is at school.

Donna said...

My kids start school tomorrow and I have to admit I'm a big bundle of nerves! I am looking forward to some peace and quiet during the day though!

Questionable Housekeeping said...

I'm looking forward to my daughter's first year of kindergarten, and seeing her learn things that I haven't taught her.

Kalisoja said...

The biggest thing I'm looking forward to is contributing to the class parties! When I was younger, my mother never came to one school event, party or field trip. I always felt lonely...as a momma now, I make it a point to be at every single event because bottom line, it matters. It truly matters to them ♥

Holly said...

I am looking forward to my kiddos making lasting friendships.

Amy said...

I'm a teacher, and I got to meet my 21 third graders last week. I'm looking forward to getting to know them better and watching them learn and grow!

I love Staples and Martha's line of goodies! I'm looking forward to my son starting 1st grade which is the grade I use to teach. And my daughter will be starting pre-school which means on T and Th I will have 2 hours with just my youngest. So that will be the time I run all my errands :)

Amber Martin said...

I love Staples and Martha's line of office goodies! I'm looking forward to my son starting first grade, which was the grade I taught. And my daughter will be starting pre-shool. That means I will have 2 hours on T and Th with just my youngest. Of course that will be my time to run errands :)

Amanda Jayne said...

I'm excited for the school year because this is our first year of homeschooling! I'm a little bit terrified at the same time...

(and I love the Martha Stewart's line of products! Thanks for the giveaway!)

Megan Bruch said...

My son missed the Kindergarten age cut-off by 2 weeks, but 3 of his cousins and his best bud are all starting. Thankfully, because God is awesome, he squeaked into a much-coveted spot at the best preschool in the county. So I am looking forward to preschool! New friends and art projects, mostly. :)

A Little Of A Lot said...

I'm excited to be getting back into a routine and having our lives a little more organized. I love how we can fly by the seat of our pants in the Summer but by Fall I'm craving a little more order.
I'm also excited to see the new friends my kids will make and the new strides they will make in school

JC said...

I'm looking forward to new friends and fun time with them.

I am seriously looking forward to making lunches. It's always been one of my favorite things even before my kids were in school! Can't wait to surprise my boy each day with something new and exciting in his lunch box!

I'm looking forward to the routine. I'm also looking forward to their days off because I'll miss my children when they are at school all day - my first year with both children in school all day all week.

AndreaBeth said...

My kids are still too little for school so not much changes for us when school starts -- but I do love the feeling of a fresh start and the changing of the seasons. Love the crisp air, apple and pumpkin drinks and desserts (pumpkin muffins...caramel apple cider...mmmm), etc!

I am looking forward to my oldest grandson starting kindergarten and my youngest grandson and granddaughter starting preschool. I can't wait to put all of their achievements on the fridge and framing their art projects to hang on my wall. Then making a scrapbook to remember all their firsts as they start the first year at school.

Jessica said...
