BACK TO SCHOOL 2014

It is hard to believe the summer has come to an end at Casa Shim. Although we had an amazing summer in the States, it is good to be home and back to a regular routine. Today the boys went back to school and they were happy to see all their friends and meet new teachers and classmates. One of the absolute best things about a new school year is school supply shopping. I have fond memories of school supply shopping when I was younger and am so happy to be able to relive the memories with my boys. We are lucky to live in Korea where it is easy to find cute and functional supplies for school. Here are some of the goodies we picked up for the boy's back to school supply kit. And even if you don't live in Korea many of them are available online (links below).
