Enjoying the Little Things with Back to School

Marshalls back to school shopping notebook and pencils

As frequent travelers, we’re fortunate that we go on wonderful adventures like riding camels in Morocco, hot air ballooning in Turkey, and exploring cities like Madrid and Lisbon.

We’re so grateful for those experiences.

But spending so much time on the road often means we don’t get a chance to do everyday things, so we really appreciate the little things when we’re able to enjoy them. This year, we’re loving back to school shopping with Cole (who’s now 10) and Jordan (who’s six). Marshalls back to school shopping books and snack container

Picking up school supplies is a blast down memory lane. It brings back memories of driving down gravel roads from our farm to go back to school shopping with my Mom. We’d go to the town drugstore for stationery, pick up some back to -school clothes and then stop for an ice cream on the way home.

So I thought I’d head to Marshalls to get some back to school essentials. I love not having to drive all over town looking for different items, so it was great to find everything from cute clothes and backpacks to great footwear in one place.

If you’re a fan of getting brand names and designer brands for less, and if you’re looking for some cute footwear, check them out. I ended up with a top and jeans for Jordan that are perfect for fall back to school. So cute!

Cole got a T-shirt and a pair of comfy pants. My boy once ripped holes in the knees of four pairs of pants, four days in a row.

These look like they can withstand a little roughhousing, though!
