New backpack, pencils, notebooks, the works! Ready or not, it’s time! Okay, I’m ready! LOL! I’m not sure she’d admit it but, I think my daughter Ireland is too! Are your kids? It’s been a wonderful summer filled with some great times and fun trips but I kind of like getting into a routine! Don’t you?
There was an open house at Ireland’s school this week. It was a chance to meet the teacher and get moved in. Her teacher is great! Ireland got all her supplies into her desk. It was right up front, first row. Love that! She also saw classmates she hadn’t seen all summer.
And, then it was time to deck out her locker. Have you ever heard of a locker chandelier? I never had. Well, let’s just say I wasn’t with her when she talked Bob into buying it. Actually, I guess it was her money, so you pick your battles. Check it out! Everybody was in awe of this little plastic chandelier that attaches to the locker and lights it up when you open it. Why didn’t I come up with this? Genius! Now, that they’ve seen Ireland’s, bet some other girls will run out and get one too.
So, we’re all moved in, and ready for school. She’s going to be in the 8th grade this year! Yikes! One a freshman in college, the other in her last year of grade school. Don’t get me started! She starts the Tuesday after Labor Day. Have yours started yet! Good luck!
