It has begun. The school year officially started just four days ago (and yes, I too am completely perplexed by the fact that public schools – at least out here – now open in mid-August), and we’re all still…shall we say, “finding our legs”?
There’s a little bit of chaos in the mornings. But also a lot of excitement, so that’s good.
One thing that makes life easier is that I now (mooooostly) let my kids choose their own clothing. A couple of back-to-school shopping trips are under our collective belts, and we are now fully stocked up with outfits that are both cool-looking and functional (flip-flops out; sturdy sneakers in, that kind of thing).
If you scroll down past the photos of the extremely fancy and impressive lemonade stand we set up the other afternoon (total customers = 1, despite the spectacular pricing), you’ll find my Top 10 finds from our back-to-school trip to Kohl’s. FYI, Kohl’s is holding a friends and family sale from 8/17-8/20, and you can get 20% off site-wide with promotional code FF20OFF. (The prices are crazy; I actually did a double-take when the cashier rang me up because I was certain she’d missed like half my items.)
