One Week & School!
Most of the public schools will be starting back in exactly one week. I, for one, am excited for this because I'm ready for my two kiddos to go back. I love them, I really do. But, I am not a stay at home type, which I might have mentioned in a previous blog, and I'm ready for both of them to be surrounded by their friends while I'm back in college again.
This summer has been eventful, and in a way it didn't seem to last too terribly long, but I'm glad there is only one week left to go. Though, with school fast approaching it's time to do the shopping for supplies and clothes. Both of my kids are growing like weeds, and I can't seem to keep either of them in a single size for more than a few months before we have to upgrade to the next size. Thankfully, the Growing Kids Sale in Fort Smith will be in September, the 7-9th from 10am to 8pm. My happy butt will go on Saturday for the half-price day and load up.
Of course until then I'll have them make do with what they already have, because kid's clothes are nauseatingly expensive. I've already rendered some of their jeans that sported holes in the knees to cut off shorts, and I'm sure a couple of other pairs will see the same fate soon.
