- Grace Patton B.C. (before children)

I always had it in the back of my head that Julia and Sebastian started school, "sometime in late August" and never gave it a second thought until yesterday when I decided to bust out the old calendar and oh - school starts THIS WEEK. Commence flurry of serious back to school shopping which will not include footwear because I've already got that very much covered thanks to Rack Room Shoes (kind post sponsor!). I've written about them a few times before because we are such a fan as a family and ALL have Rack Room Shoes in our closets because the prices and selection can't be beat.
Rack Room carries brands that parents and students love: Converse (pictured, obviously), Vans, Skechers, Nike, New Balance, and so much more.
I'm a huge fan of these Converse Shorelines (Sebastian had a pair before and loved them) because the back is elastic and the laces don't need to be tied and so the three older kids can put them on THEMSELVES which is a game changer in the mornings - as many of you know, I'm sure.
Phoebe loves loves LOVES to match Julia and so you can imagine how she almost lost her mind when she saw that allll the kids were matching (little kids in Converse Allstar Lo's) and she kept chanting, "match! match! match! MATCH!!" for all of the Greater Tampa Metropolitan Area to hear and enjoy at a rather early hour of the morning.
Bosco and his Olympic inspired gymnast aspirations were thrilled too.
Rack Room Shoes has a phenomenal Shoes That Fit campaign that donates shoes to kids in need. Shoppers can donate to the cause at checkout and be confident that 100% of your donation will go directly to the cause.
