Celebrate #back2school at Country Mouse, City Mouse! {#giveaway}

This week, I've spent recouping from a very busy summer with my three children.  It was a summer of firsts and new adventures.  My youngest went to camp for the first time and my oldest was training as a camp CIT.  The summer sure seemed to fly by and before we knew it we are back to school.

 My little girl is in grade two this year, and has been so lucky to be put into a class which is participating in Forest School.  One day each week her class will be out of the school for the entire day at a local farm.  The rest of the week, she'll be spending half the day outdoors at the school and surrounding area.

My son is in grade five and he is fired up.  I am so happy to see him so excited about learning and starting the year on the right foot.

My oldest daughter is now in grade ten.  Don't even get me started on how fast high school is going to pass.  I see University on the horizon and that is rather scary.

Did you have kids in your life going back to school this week?  I hope it went well for all returning students, no matter their age.

In celebration of the kick off of the 2013/2014 school season, I am offering a $25 Chapters gift card giveaway.
