Back to School Giveaway #Hotdots #Sharpie #Expo

Back to school time is always a little bittersweet for me. For most of the year, I’m an empty nester. I do have the grand kids during their summer break and all other school breaks but the remainder of the time it’s just me and Peanut. So I don’t look as forward to school starting back as they do. I’m happy for the kids though because this is the time of year they’re always excited about seeing their friends again and even meeting new friends. I love watching them grow and learn and having a good education is really important to me and their parents.

Back to school time comes with costs though. Even for parents of only one child, it can become costly. Even though the kids get a list of school supplies there’s always extra little things they want but don’t necessarily need and that’s why Kathy from Reviews by Kathy got together a little goody package to give away. She was sweet enough to invite me and a couple of other bloggers to join in so our readers have a chance to win the giveaway as well. Below are the goodies she’s giving away.  There’s $40.00 worth of goods in this giveaway.

Also participating are Tiffany @ It’s Totally Tiffany, Hannah @ Beachy Lady and The Review Wire.

Good luck and if you have the chance to go by and thank Kathy, please do.  US 18+ to enter.

    I liked it back when I went to school because at that point I was normally bored with summer and looked forward to learning more.

    I totally understand the “bittersweet” part of BTS. I love the simple slowness of summer and the family time. Hard to get back into the routine, yet its part of life. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love hate back to school because I love the alone time when they go to school and I hate all the preparation and money I have to spend to get ready for school and all the money throughout the school year.

    I do hate back to school because I really enjoy my kids being home with me during the summer. I also really hate going back to the homework routine, especially the projects.

    As much as I do love having my kids home during the summer, I definitely prefer the routine during school. Of course it is more chaotic with sports and events but I still love it!

    I love taking the kids shopping for school items and clothes. I get sad first week or two when they go back, I miss them.

    I don’t love it or hate it. I do prefer summer when we can all sleep in and not be on a schedule.

    I miss the kids but love going shopping when they are in school. They come home, and all the groceries have been bought.
