Jumping Back In

We are about to jump back into the crazy part of the year. Back to school, back to soccer, back to boy scouts, back to the knitty gritty, back to the grind. I've got all of the back to school shopping under my belt and that feels pretty good.

I start back to school before the boys do. Kind of funny really. Amelia will start her first experience with big girl school this year. She'll go to a half day preschool program like the boys did. Wasn't she just born? I tried to make her a back pack, but it turned out kind of yucky, so I ordered her one too. Shopping for wee cute backpacks is kind of fun. Butterflies and flowers are a lot more my style than skulls and guitars. We do have one last fling before we have to face the music. A beach trip ... ahhhhhh! It makes me glad that we book our trip for the end of the summer instead of the beginning.

LOL! This is what I posted on. :)

We start MONDAY! Can't believe it.

We have to carry clear or mesh backpacks... so unless it's camouflage, there isn't really anything cool about it. :)

School supplies? I just order the prepackaged stuff through the school..... I started that when G was in 2nd grade..... I don't like holding on to it until I can take it to the classroom.

HOWEVER to get my fix... because really? Who can resist the brand new, pointy crayons, new pencils, new spirals..... So, I set up a school supply center in our house for all homework assignments.... Really, I don't think they will need ALL THAT CONSTRUCTION PAPER, but I love seeing the rainbow in the cabinet. :)
