Let the countdown begin!

28 days. I am counting down the days until school starts. It will be nice to be back in a regular routine. Kayla starts on August 20. We bought all of her school supplies yesterday. Twice, actually. We bought them at WalMart, and then we headed to Target. Everything was cheaper there. I will be returning our stuff to WalMart. Every little bit helps. School supplies are expensive! I am not sure why she needs 36 pencils (Ticonderoga brand only), 8 glue sticks, 4 big pink erasers, etc. Andy is mad we are providing supplies to kids that don't bring them. I think that is still cheaper than having to pay tuition at a private school. I don't mind helping stock the classroom a little. The teacher should not have to cover those costs.

The kids are starting to fight a lot, and the schedule is just crazy. I know school brings about a whole new kind of busy, but at least it will be more routine.

Now for the back to school clothes shopping...

Yea, we went to Target and bought school supplies yesterday. THANKS! Tell Andy not to complain, he's only buying for one - I'm buying for three! And when you go to a private school, you have to pay tuition and supply fee which where we went was $125!

Our school does a wrap pack- $50 for all the supplies and it's in the classroom for meet-the-teacher. I have yet to shop for school supplies.
And, I am no where near wanting school to start. I'm sure I'll get there. Right now, I'm not sure I could get my boys to their schools on time!

I was reading the note from Shereda and trying to make sense of it --- good thing Jenny 'fessed up. :-)

Remember Nanny and Papa will help buy school supplies, clothes or shoes so give us an opportunity.
