I mentioned it to my mom and she went and bought the kids each a backpack so I guess they can have one blessed in a more general sense than just for going to a school.

After that we will use them to try and take our school work out and about a little more. Very exciting stuff.

It was. 8) She isn't *thrilled* with me homeschooling but accepts that it works well for the kids.

That was nice of your mom!  

My MIL wasn't thrilled with us homeschooling, either, but once she saw how amazing it is for the kids, she started actually bragging to her colleagues and friends about how they are homeschooled.

I'm hoping my mom will get to that point!

It was about three years or more.  Now, she buys us tons of school supplies, she offers to give me money for curriculum.  It's nice.

That was nice of her. Both of my kids have backpacks that they use for field trips, camp, and swim classes.

I'm hoping we will use ours the same way. It's funny that I never really thought about using backpacks before. We do have other bags but these will be much handier.

My mom totally would have gone out and bought them backpacks too, lol.  Sometimes I don't appreciate my mom enough.

Any blessing is good in my opinion, lol.
