For quite some time the stores have had the school supplies and back to school clothes in stock. We’ve counted out pencils, searched for just the right color of book cover and stocked up on notebook paper. We’ve found the cutest outfit For Ali and the perfect pair of shoes to go with it, and lets not forget the coolest T-shirts out there for Steve and just the right skate board shoes for the season. Now it is time to put all of that prep into action because school starts next week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready. The kids are board and have gone to picking on each other as their favorite pass time (their second favorite is tattleing). I love my kids and enjoy them a lot, but this constant picking can wear on even the calmest of nerve. My daughter is very excited to get back to school but my middle school son is less than thrilled. We had a great summer but I look forward to he routine that school brings into our house. I hope you too had a great summer and are looking ahead to a fine fall season.
