Living in the midwest, schools start for us around the end of August. Being as today is July 23rd, that gives us about 1 month to get our 4 children ready. Advertisements for backpacks, lunch boxes, clothes, etc have already entered my post office mail box as well as my email inbox. I guess it's time to start thinking about it! So, in the spirit of preparing I've listed my top 5 "things" that we historically do to prepare for school.
1. haircut 2. backpack 3. lunch box 4. new shoes 5. new shirt for 1st day
As school supplies are our business, that is a given... my kids find no excitement in a new box of crayons like I use to as a child... overexposure to blame. :)
The count down begins!
