All You Need Are Backpacks

Monday we previewed some part time childcare options.  After looking at a few preschools and daycare facilities, we picked a preschool program recommended by a trusted friend.  It helps that Finn & Belle already know at least one of their classmates!!

The program is run by a local Methodist Church and the director did a phenomenal job easing my 'separation anxiety' (the twins could care less if I'm around).  So beginning in September, the babies will spend two mornings a week at school learning basic skills appropriate for their developmental age.

Apparently all they need is a backpack with diapers, wipes and a change of clothes (say whaaat!?!).  My barely walking babies already need backpacks?  The director said buying the twins a backpack gives them a sense of ownership.

So, Dave and I did a little online shopping this week and found Finn & Belle's very first backpacks (at the risk of embarrassing my man, folks, he was super excited about shopping for these backpacks).

We finally agreed on two backpacks from Sugarbooger by o.r.e..  Finn gets this Retro Robot pack.  He doesn't know it yet, but robots are cool.  Lady Belle gets the girly Flutterby pack that has just a kick of hip to match my baby girl's style.
