How I Pack my Backpack

how_I_pack_my_backpack

I’m homeschooled, and I don’t do any homeschool co-ops. HOWEVER, I know that not all of you guys are homeschooled as well, and I thought that doing a “what I keep in my backpack” post for you public/private schoolers would be a good idea and helpful! So here’s what I [would] pack in my school backpack.
