The kids are tan and dirty and tired. They’ve grown a little, in both size and maturity. They’ve driven us crazy and they’ve filled our hearts with joy. They’ve played with cousins, gone to camp, learned to ride bikes or swim or do a cartwheel or tie their shoes. They’ve eaten too many popsicles and watched too much tv and stayed up too late.
Some of us are shouting for joy at the prospect of structure and some of us are mourning the loss of extra time. For most of us, it’s a bit of both.
It’s Back to School time.
We’ve filled out all the required school paperwork. Submitted the physical form, and given approval for OTC meds as needed. We’ve made sure the school knows how to reach us if needed, and given emergency contacts in case they can’t. But what about giving our kids actual teacher a little bit of insight into our kids? This letter to my teacher is a great way to help our kiddos introduce themselves to their new teacher.
Behind the 8 ball like we are and still looking for school clothes?
Carter’s has been running great sales. At the time of this publication it was 50% off, but keep your eyes out because a few days ago it was 60%! Walmart and Target both have large uniform selections (we’re particularly obsessed with this sports material polo from Target and with the code UNIFORM20 you can get 20% off).
Locally, we love Luca Boutique for second-hand clothing that is stylish and affordable.
