Oh my gosh, it's August 2nd. Where the heck did that come from?
School just let out for the summer the other day, right?
What? That was 8 WEEKS ago?
What have I been doing these past 2 months?
finishing the fence,
Slip 'n Slides,
and everything else that goes
with have 3 kids.
Actually, I am really looking forward to school starting back up again.
Archie will be a 4th grader, Ichabod will be in first grade, and Roland will start Kindergarten.
All three boys will be in school full time.
I can't wait!
I've gotten most of the school supply shopping done already. Both Archie and Ichabod want to use their backpacks from last year (which have held up miraculously well) so just Roland will need a brand new one.
I have 3 paper bags filled to the top with each of the boys required items.
Notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers,
school boxes, scissors, calculators, binders,
markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, rulers,
folders, highlighters, paint shirts, disinfecting wipes,
Kleenexes, and anything else the
school has deemed necessary to succeed academically.
One final thing to be purchased: each of my boys will get to pick out
one new shirt to wear for the first day of school.
Oh, yes. I am excited.
35 days and counting...
Roland: Hi, John!
Brian: I'm not John. I'm Brian.
Roland: Well....you're both black.
