What's In My School Bag!

I was enjoying looking at all of the great bags over at the "What's In Your School Bag" Linky Party the Abby is hosting over at The Inspired Apple and I though that I would share mine. I apologize in advance for the photo quality. I used my phone camera as my good camera is at school (of course, right?).

First, I love my bag. I even wrote an entire blog post about it when I first got it over on my personal blog It's the Little Things. It is a custom order from L.L. Bean and better yet, it was a birthday present! I opted for a few fun extras like the extra long handles and the zip close top. Of course I also opted for the monogram and I got to pick the colors myself. Awesome.
Another monogram gift! This portfolio goes with me to meetings mostly because I find that it is hard to be grouchy when you are faced with pink & polka-dots. I get a lot of "F" monogram items due to the fact that it must not be a popular initial and is always in the clearance bin!

Also in the bag is my plan book. I transitioned to the binder a few years ago and it makes it easier to keep all of my papers in one place!

My books for planning are my Lucy Calkins (still cranking through book 1) and my Math Investigations book.

2 umbrellas........not sure why there are 2..........

Some stuff to do while I am watching TV tonight.

After I took out the stuff that I have shown in the pictures, this is what was left. Some popcorn, assorted writing instruments, a camera cord, a CD, Staples Teacher's reward card, and my extra pair of glasses (just in case).
Thanks for taking the tour!

Bee the Change~
