DD3 walks between 2 1/2 and 3 miles to school every day, and the same
again to get home. Yeah, someday I am going to meet the former mayor
that ditched the city bus system and sock him one.
Anyhow, she is taking art classes in addition to linguistics.
One of the instructors she is going to have repeatedly is very fond of
largish sketch pads, at present 18x24 inches (46x61 cm).
There has got to be a better way to carry these things.
While I am contemplating getting her a laminated bamboo field easel with
canvas carrying capacity that has an extendable handle and wheels like
some rolly luggage for christmas, she needs something now. I have had a
lot of ideas, but it is reconciling them with the fact that she has to
carry 25+ pounds of books as well that makes it difficult.
I'm afraid that if I make a back carrier that goes over her backpack,
that she will take off like the flying nun in the first stiff breeze.
Optimally she should be able to turn the narrow section to the wind and
secure it thusly quickly and easily. Plus not having it banging on her
legs would be good.
After making dozens of sketches, I am about to throw my hands up and just
get her a little red wagon. Except that would suck for maneuvering
stairs once she is inside the buildings.
Please point out the obvious that I am missing!
