Blake is starting Kindergarten this year. It's hard to believe it's that time already. Time passes too quickly. If his birthday had been 3 weeks sooner, he would have started last year.
We have been getting things here and there, as they go on sale. Two or three weeks ago, Staples had a good sale. Pencils, folders, pencil sharpeners & binders for $.01. And we found him some polo shirts on clearance at Wal-Mart.
Well today, his grandmother, aunt, cousins, him, Layla & I went shopping for some more stuff. Blake is officially ready for school. All we need still is one more school shirt, and I have to get that from the school. They have to wear uniforms. I don't really care for uniforms, but what can ya do. They have to wear denim or kakhi shorts/pants and either the school's t-shirt, or solid red, white or navy polo shirts. And on Fridays they can wear a flag shirt that the school sells. Layla suckered Nonnie into a new backpack and new shoes as well. But we got an awesome deal on her shoes! She got a pair of Etnie's that were normally $49.99 for $12.49! This is what they look like, except the E's light up on hers.
Normally the kids here have to buy all kinds of things for school. Ziploc bags, paper plates, copy paper, 20 glue sticks, cotton balls... But this year, all they say they need is 6 folders, 300 sheets of notebook paper, 2 gluesticks, 2 notebooks & pencils. What is on your children's school supply lists this year?
