Hilarie, ew to the ants.
There are PBK backpacks for about $20 right now (depending on size). And LL Bean has light blue (only) on clearance for $12.99. The LL Bean one is the one Megan got when she started Kindergarten, and it has held up well. Now looks like a good time to buy them, since it's not "back to school" season. That's why I was looking into it.4:30. Still working. Waiting for one answer so I can finish this thing up. She said "soon" about an hour and a half ago. This isn't as soon as I'd like! At least I'm making good progress today.
