What Will Happen in Your Chair this Year?

The 2015-2016 school year is a big one in our house, and our office chair will see us through it all.

My oldest starts {gulp} middle school this year, a milestone which she couldn’t be more excited about. A change of schools, more than one teacher, and a locker all of her own. Until she walks through that front door, it remains unknown territory since we don’t have a class or teacher list. So, we’re as prepared as we can be through the purchased school supplies, everything checked off the list and ready to go. Every year up until now we’ve bypassed the locker section at Staples, I was happy with their selection of everything from organizers to magnetic mirrors. My hope as a parent is that even on a bad day, she’ll look at herself in that mirror and smile. Yep, big milestones indeed. 

The twins start Grade 2 this year, and the biggest question is ‘will they be in different or the same class?’. I left it up to the teachers this year, and either route – we are all totally prepared. Their supplies are ready and waiting also, there’s something beautiful about new and freshly sharpened pencils and markers waiting to tell a story.

New beginnings, new friends, and the first time my kids will be in separate schools. Actually, they’ll never be at the same school ever again.

My office chair will see schedules coordinated, homework mastered, and creativity flow. For my kids and myself, as we have two home businesses. Our new Executive Eco Leather Chair will no doubt see frustration, but also success and determination.

There will be moments of drive and focus, but also times of silliness and spins on the chair. Each day of the 2015-2016 school season will see new chaos, and our chair will be there through it all.
