Katherine's Almost Backpack

Does anyone out there remember back in July or August when we were at the beach and Katherine went online and ordered backpack?

Well, she did, and it was supposed to come the week after school started. So she started back to school with her same old falling apart backpack, thinking her new one would come any day. It never did, and we heard through a classmate friend who'd ordered the same one that L.L. Bean couldn't fill the orders.

Then came December, she's still using the same backpack and it's still falling apart - there are no working handles so she has to hug it to carry it, or roll it. Rolling doesn't work too well on a gravel road!

On a lark we went back to the website to see if there was any other backpack that might just do the job - cute but functional! There it was -her backpack was back! We hopped on that ordering machine and got our name right in there for one of those fast-selling packs!

Long story getting longer - it came Saturday!

We're so excited!

What in the world?

The new one came today - she'll be so excited! The fear was that they'd already sold out again - but they hadn't. Yay!
