Back To School Soon - Tackled Buying School Supplies


One day last week N came up to me in the morning saying "Mom, I had a bad dream"
Mom: What's the bad dream?
N : We're already in school and
we still didn't have school supplies.
Mom: You mean you didn't have
school supplies on your first day?
N : No, not only on the first day,
we I didn't have school supplies
for A MONTH!
Mom: Huh?
N : Yep - that's why it was a bad dream
Mom: What else was in the dream?
N: Well, I was trying to tell you to buy us
the school supplies but you
were always so busy.
Mom: Oh ...

And so last Sunday, we tackled buying the school supplies to make sure that dream does not come true! Kids go back to school on June 30th.

No school supplies for the first month of school really is a scary dream! I'm still waiting for my son's list so we can start that Tackle too!

I just started with a couple things, but I'll tackle the list over the next few shopping trips.

Great Tackle!

You are so smart to beat the mad rush the week before school starts! Way to go!

LOL, that sounds like quite a bad dream! I just can't believe it's almost back to school time...where did the summer go???

Dawn said...

No, back-to-school means back-to-work; not ready for that! We actually do not head back until after Labor Day. Good job getting prepared, though!

Great tackle! That was another thing we did this week, as well. I have to get 4 more things & we are done.

This is the time to buy stuff--everything is cheap. I should get out there and get stuff..

My goodness! I had a dream a few nights ago that we didn't get my SD enrolled in school (she'll be in K this year) until the day school started, so they put her in Pre-K 'cause the K class was full.
I love school supplies; they're so much fun.

Your kid is really smart to explain his feelings.

School supplies shopping is one of my favorite things to do....I loved getting new pencils, paper, markers, book bags, etc as a child so I want to make it just as fun for my girls.
