It’s that time of year – the annual $5.99 sale at Great Products! That means it’s time to stock up on your favorite t-shirts. We did! Now, there are lots of homeschool t-shirt companies out there today, but Great Products has been around since our early homeschool days. I think it was the 2nd year we homeschooled that I got together my first group order for our local support group. It got to the point that, in August, families would start asking if I was going to doing an order for homeschool shirts soon.
Probably our all-time favorite, for obvious reasons, is the warning: unsocialized homeschooler shirt, modeled here by my boy a few years and a lot less facial hair ago.
We still have to get outfitted every year, so I thought you might be interested in seeing the shirts that made the cut this year – and having a chance to enter to win some shirts of your own!
First up, Megan chose the rooted and grounded shirt. She’s already worn it a couple of times since it arrived last Friday and every time she does, I tell her how much I like it on her. It just suits her.
Next, Josh chose the homeschool ninja shirt. He made an excellent choice, too, because, like Megan, he has already worn his a couple of times and I love it on him!
Brianna just had to choose a homeschool graduate shirt (you can choose the year). She hasn’t had a chance to wear hers yet because she’s been working, volunteering at church, and performing in the final weekend of a play. We all really like hers, too. Megan said, “It looks like a real graduation shirt.”
I didn’t point out that it is a real graduation shirt because I knew what she meant and it was intended to be complimentary.
Brian chose the homeschool father shirt. Now, I’ve got to say that I don’t like it as well as the shirt he got last year…but that’s only because it’s really hard to top “I’m in love with my kids teacher.”
Freak that I am, I got the same shirt that I got last year, but in a different color. I tried to pick a brighter, cheerier color since half of my closet is either brown or black. I must not be a bright, cheery person, though, because all year I’ve regretted that I didn’t get last year’s shirt in black – you know, until now.
I got the homeschool substitute shirt because it cracks me up. (You probably noticed that I’m not the only one in my family who is, apparently, not the bright and cheery sort.)
And, just as a bonus, I’ve got to tell you about the cutest new shirts Great Products has got – the color-in t-shirts! I love them! They come as a blank outline with washable markers and kids can color in their own shirts. Such a cute idea. I’ve linked to one, but be sure to look around. There are several different color-in designs. And, here’s another design that I predict is going to be wildly popular:
Now, I suppose you’re wanting to know how you can win. Guess what? We’ve got two ways to win this year! First, we’ll be giving away a family of shirts here on the blog!
