So my kids are going into K-garten and 1st grade. I got their school clothes this summer, so all I really had to do was go to the dollar store (which is about 80 miles away) and get their school supplies. Except of course for shoes...I traveled 90 miles yesterday (1 way) to pick up shoes for them....and a few more fun clothes, but other than that we're good. Except I haven't gotten my daughter a winter coat yet..she has a way cool trench that will take her until cold weather and by then I'll have one. Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with myself for having everything ready. Their little school/pencil boxes are all put together, they have their wipes and their kleenex and their color pencils and crayons, notebooks and tennis shoes and glue sticks and (don't ask why) their cassette tape. I get to drop them off at school tomorrow (yay, not accruing child care expense) and then I've taken a sick day to go to the orthodontist and eye doctor. FREEEEEEEEDDDDOOOOOOM! Lol. Also I'm packing my car up with stuff to take to Salvation Army, finally, after meaning to do it for a year. I am so looking forward to the seriously depleted child care bill. I have some end tables I really want.
