School starts in less than two weeks. Which is strange, because our town is going back almost two weeks later than the others around us, due to construction and restructuring. Karate camp ends tomorrow....and I'm just as sad this year as I was last summer. It's been a good one and I know that the boys have loved going every day.
We're hurriedly finishing the summer homework, and the emails and robo-calls have started rolling in with school announcements. I got Will's back to school supplies the other night to the tune of $85! Dry erase markers, 48 sharpened pencils, a slew of folders, a bunch of highlighters (chisel tip ONLY).....and that's not even all of it. He still needs a pair of earbuds and I told the boys that I'd treat them to new lunchboxes this weekend. I'm thankful that there's no supply list for kindergarten, but am SO LOOKING FORWARD to shopping for supplies for both kids next year.
It's great to have good friends. Especially friends who offer to take your younger son to Kindergarten Orientation with their son! I'm stuck working today while Sean's meeting his teacher and taking a ride on the bus. Ah well, I'll get to meet the teacher next week at open house.
It's a bit of a whirlwind, with some longing and happiness mixed together. We'll get through it.
