Back-to-School Basics August 1, 2011
Like every year, the summer that seemed so long and daunting at the beginning of the season is coming to a quick close, which means it’s time to get those ducks in a row for another academic year. I think we’re pretty ready here in our household. We’ve purchased our dress code polo shirts and cargo shorts, way-too-expensive athletic shoes, loads of school supplies, backpacks (we’re recycling this year, because I just can’t stomach buying another pair of packs), and new lunch boxes are in route to our front door! We’ll score some fresh haircuts just before the first day of the 3rd and 5th grades, and we’re planning a backyard boy bash for the last Friday before the big day. I think we’re set. How about you?
