Back To School 2016 - Max

Hello everybody! We are starting a quick back to school series here, where we show you everyone's school supplies and first day outfits. Max is up first, with a outfit perfect for playing in the elementary school yard.

His outfit for the first day of school is the Bitty Twins Red Argyle Outfit, from American Girl (retired now though). 

Sorry this picture is dark, but these are the shoes from that same outfit, the Red Argyle Outfit.

Max's backpack is an older red, blue, and yellow Build-A-Bear backpack with plastic insets. It has a paw print on it and says "School Bag".

He has a lot of fun things in his backpack, and he wants to grab some goldfish too but Chloe said that he had to wait until it was closer to school time before he could get it.

The first thing in his backpack is a set of colored pencils (made from pipe cleaners) for art.

He also has his spelling workbook, to practice in during school. 

The last thing Max has in his backpack is a cool folder with Batman and Superman on it. You can find the printable folder, and lots more cool folders at this link

Inside of the folder is some spare paper for Max, printed from Doll Diaries

So Max is all ready for school, and very excited too!

I've been trying to post more often lately, and I think I'm doing okay. I don't really like having a posting schedule, because I know I wouldn't be able to stick to it. I'm trying to post around once a week or so, not a specific date. Do you guys like this arrangement, or would you like me to post more, or less? During this series I might post a little more often then that, but then I should go back to a more regular-ish schedule, at least as regular as I can be :).

Also, if you guys have a specific post you would like me to make, tell me! I like hearing your suggestions. I have a couple posts lined up, but I'm always open to new ideas. 

I guess that's it for today, see you soon!


  1. What a nice outfit you are wearing Max. Have a good school year.

    1. Thank you Marion! Max says thanks too :). Hope you have a good year too!

  2. Hope you have a great school year and make a lot of friends.

    1. Thanks Marilyn! Max is very excited to meet his class.

  3. Max looks great in his school clothes! :) I think for your posts you should just do the schedule that works for you. I know on my blog (doll-diy.blogspot.com) I've been trying to post once a week, but I've been too busy so I might just do it every two weeks or once a month. If once a week works for you, though, that's great! I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

    1. Thanks bluehorse! That's a good idea, and I've been trying to do that. I really like your blog, you have very creative posts!

  4. How fun! That was a great idea to use pipe cleaners as colored pencils!

    1. Thank you so much Gracie! Max likes his colored pencils a lot :)
