The backpacks are packed and sitting, ready to go, by the door.
Carson's school used SchoolKidz again this year. If your PTA's ever mention it, JUMP ON BOARD! You pay a fee (not unreasonable) and you get this box full of the items for your child's school/grade, along with customized labels to label everything. Saves tons of time.
Elise's school didn't do the kits this year so we had to assemble all the school supplies. Hopefully we didn't forget something from the list.
And the school lunch menu is posted on the fridge. My kids decide at the beginning of each month what days they want to buy and what days they want to bring. Elise is my super helper and reminds me each night of the lunch(es) I have to make the following day.
So how did we spend the last day of summer?
Carson was invited the "Bing Field" with some neighborhood kids. The "Bing Field" is a paintball/airsoft field and our neighbor had rented it out for the day. The kids usually all play in the woods behind our house, but they had a BLAST on a more formal course, even though they also had a referree (something they don't have when they play in the woods!). Carson drained his allowance fund to do this and HAD A BLAST!
Getting ready, putting Uncle Shawn's military gear to good use!
He must of played HARD 'cuz he's been eating NONSTOP since he's been home.
Elise had her nails done. It was someone different this time and Elise didn't like the flowers they painted on, so she's already started picking it off....sigh.....
Elise has been playing with Legos nonstop lately. She's been building (and re-building and re-building) this house for her little kitties today.
The kids decided they wanted ribs for the "last night of dinner" meal. Perry, you'd better get home quickly so the kids don't devour them before you arrive!!!
