Where did the summer go? My girls have been in “big kid” school for the past five+ years and I still get a stomach ache when I think about them going back to school before Labor Day! When exactly did those “school” people decide that this was a good idea and why wasn’t I invited to the meeting? Don’t get me wrong, my girls are ready and I guess I am ready – but I do wish they had more than two weeks of lazy summer days left. I feel as if we just got into a good “lazy” routine, and then WHAM! Summer reading, order uniforms, practice multiplication facts….the list goes on and on.
The only thing that is keeping me sane is the fact that I LOVE school supplies!!! I love the way they look all stacked neatly on the shelves in the store. I love the way a new notebook looks and feels when you open it. I love sharpened pencils and new pens. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE school supplies!
Ok, I know I’m a dork.
