Summer just started full-time school and she is loving it. She gets a bit teary eyed when I hug her goodbye and wish her a good day, she squeezes me and tells me she misses me. I then wave her off and leave her to her day. She loves learning and she loves being around her friends, so school really suits her.
Jacob has returned to school, he has the same teacher which he is super pleased about. Jacob struggles academically, but it doesn't stop him loving school, and I think this has a lot to do with his teacher. He's also pleased to be with his mates again too.
Jacob is a fussy eater, thus, I will only send him to school with a packed lunch, otherwise, I know he won't eat anything, especially school dinners. Summer is enjoying school dinners, but also likes to have a packed lunch now and then.
They're also encouraged to take a water bottle into class so they can drink water throughout the day, however, Jacob doesn't like water, and nearly all of last year his plastic water bottle would come home full and untouched. I persistently sent him to school with one and would encourage him to start drinking water. Finally, I found a way he would drink water. I have to chill the water in a metal water bottle the evening before, and pop that into his school bag and since then, each day he has been drinking it, and he is slowly starting to drink more and more water - which is great.
So I wanted to get him a new metal water bottle and new packed lunch bag - both personalised, as that is so much better and easier.
IJustLoveIt.co.uk, a gifting website that specialises in personalised gifts. The website offers a large array of inspired gift ideas, including gifts for men, for children, back to school and so much more and we were sent two personalized lunch bags, one for Summer and one for Jacob and a personalized water bottle.
We've had items from IJustLoveIt before and love the products. The quality is great, and I love how you can personalise the items, the kids appreciate it too. Delivery does take a little longer than normal, around 10 - 14 days, but the wait is worth it, I've never been disappointed with the products.
They are zipped soft lunch bags, but sturdy and robust at the same time. The bag is quite large, big enough to fit a drink, sandwich, fruit pot, as well as snacks - enough space without having to cram it all in. They each have a carry handle and on the front is a fun print and their names. RRP £16.99
These lunch bags are great, I can't recommend them high enough. I also love the water bottles, perfect for Jacob, as it is a metal bottle, well built and it's also personalised.
