About 2 weeks until school starts so I guess I had better figure out what needs to be purchased.
I went through the drawers and closets and everyone is okay with the clothes they have, except for Hanna who can`t get any of her jeans on. She has not gotten any taller so now I have to find girls plus size jeans. It is hard to get those cheap, which is what I need to do since she is gong to destroy them anyway. I need to get Allen and Paul some socks since their`s have no elastic left in them. Paul has grown out of his shoes so he will need new ones. I already got the black pants and shoes Lauren needs for her new job.
Paul has a list of things he is supposed to have. Looking at that list and considering his needs I am making lots of changes. He is going to need extra clothes long before he will use 6 notebooks. He goes through a lot more wipes and tissues then the average 2nd grader so I will send 2 boxes instead of one.
I have not seen any list for the older kids yet, but I think that replacing the toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, wipes, and folders is usually all I need to do.
There aren`t going to be any shopping trips costing hundreds of dollars taking place here before sending them out the door.
I think everyone is ready to get back into the school routine, I know I am. I am also hoping that this school year allows me to have more mom time and less medical time.
