I can’t believe it. August is almost here and school starts in less than 4 weeks! I’m not ready. This year Grant will be in preschool 3 days a week and we will have 2 kiddos in school! Where does the time go. Grant is over the moon with excitement because he’s ready to socialize, learn, and just be a “big kid”. I have no doubt he will thrive in that environment. Still, I get a lump in my throat thinking about sending him off to spread his wings. Gabriel is going to enter second grade which is pretty major because it means he’ll be preparing for his First Holy Communion! So each child has a big milestone and we know it will be a great year, I just wish it wouldn’t start so soon!
Although I have to admit, the fun part for me is the shopping for supplies and school clothes. We set a budget and have almost saved up so we can start gathering items. I’ve been scanning the Internet for deals and it’s been hard to wait with some of the sales I’ve found! Check out Land’s End. They have a big summer blowout in effect and it just started so everything is still stocked up! Gap.com also has a bunch of summer items on clearance too. Plus, I like that they recently combined shipping with 4 other stores, so you can shop at Old Navy, etc and only have one checkout! One mom even complied an entire (huge) list of the where you can get the best prices on back-to-school supplies. Whew…can you tell I’ve been doing some web surfing?! Ha ha. Sometimes it’s fun just to browse.:)
Well, time to wake up the boys and start supper. We are having maple glazed turkey tonight…and no dessert.:( Oh what I wouldn’t give for a 3 Musketeers!
