Back to School.

Today is the big day!  Now that my girls are out of elementary school they have a little bit of a hike to get to the bus stop.  We actually live the farthest that you can be from the stop in our neighborhood.  Gone are the days of walking two houses up….now it is a third of a mile.  Not awful.  But different.  I wish that backpacks were still considered “cool” for girls.  They make so much sense!  They are easy to carry, hold a ton, and nothing will fall out of them.  Not for my girls…they have to have cute little tote bags from Abercrombie, Vera Bradlely, or anywhere else expensive.  The next best backpack alternative is a messenger bag.  Here are a few cute ones…

At Timbuk2 you can design your own messenger bag.  These bags are made really well.

bagR.E.Load Bags  has a huge selection of messenger bags.  Tons of sizes & colors to pick from.

bagLooking for a super hip bag?  Go Crumpler!  Even their website is super hip…(oh…and please takeout the 6 pack before you give the bag to your kids)

bagMy personal messenger bag of choice?  My Tom Bihn bag.  I love it.

bagSo now I wait anxiously for the bus to arrive home (only I won’t know it, cause it doesn’t come by my house anymore), for the girls to come down the hill and tell me that everything was great.  Fingers crossed for a super day!
