This year has been a really busy one for us. Typically I spend more time discussing our homeschooling and day to day life with you all, however this year we’ve been so busy that I’ve skipped over much of it. I wanted to take a bit to let you all know a little about what we have going on. We are still homeschooling, however we have joined some very nice homeschool groups and are very active in sports and other clubs. Our children have a lot of friends and I believe they are more social and busy now that we are homeschooling than they were when we were at their old school.
But, with that being said, we still like to do some of the traditional things…like shop for backpacks and back to school supplies. I’m a little old school and I like to keep things tidy and in order. I purchase the backpacks so that we can easily pack supplies and take them with us when we want to do our schooling on the go. (Sometimes it’s unavoidable, especially now that we have our house on the market and showings lined up). Even when my kids were in the public school and private schools I was always big on making sure their backpack had the much needed staples in it. One of those things (that many of us probably don’t think about) is ChapStick®! I mean, it’s a skincare staple that helps keeps your lips smooth and silky, but it also fits in the backpack perfectly!
Why do I pack ChapStick® in my children’s backpacks?
When kids are outdoors (especially in the colder months) running around their lips can over get very chapped and they can become quite sore. A lot of people don’t consider ChapStick® a product for boys, however I think boys especially need it because they are so active (girls are as well) and they often don’t do things to protect their lips from wind and weather. We purchase the ChapStick® that goes on clear to help protect our little ones while they are out enjoying themselves. We also use it indoors (again, especially in winter months) as the temperatures are changing and often times the air is dryer and lips and skin can lose the extra moisture that it needs to stay soft and smooth.
Our boys really enjoyed the ChapStick® flavors that we received (Classic Original, Classic Cherry, Moisturizer Original, Aloha Coconut). I’ve always loved the Classic Cherry, however the Aloha Coconut is now at the top of my favorites list!)
