I am an adult student who is slowly earning a science degree one class at a time. Often times life interferes and I don't take a class for a year or more. My favorite thing about going back to school is the sense of adventure when starting a new class. It's a new beginning, filled with hope and promise and eagerness for the feeling of accomplishment at the end of the semester. If I win one of these bags, I will send it to my niece, a teacher whose dedication extendes this same excitement to her own students each school year.
Best wishes from,

Oh my, my favorite thing about school? Being able to have some "me" time. Seeing their excitement about going back to school and seeing friends. Love teaching them to take responsibility for themselves, getting dressed, making their lunches, etc.

Hello, Teresa!
My favourite thing about going back to school or university its colored pencils and ink. Drawing - this is my passion. And my sister loves maps, especially the world map. It may consider them for hours.

Our family loves the buying of school supplies also. They love picking out pencils and cool notebooks and folders. Ours go back 8/18. None of us are ready yet because this summer went by way too fast. I'm sure my little man would give it to his teacher with something fun inside if we won.

my favorite thing about school returning is that I get to meet a whole new group of little ones- it is always fun to meet and begin the new learning season.
Thanks for the chance to win these cute bags. I love using cloth bags to take things back and forth to school.
