Hint, Hint

I: Hey Mom
K: Yes Ian
I: Just so you know...Walgreen's has school supplies priced reasonably.
K: Ok buddy

I guess it is time to start thinking about the new school year. We need to get school supplies (Grandma is going to pick them up), get back into going to bed early, and eating breakfast by 7:00 am. Tomorrow is registration and pictures. I'm not really sure why the school takes pictures before school starts BUT I guess it is a good idea because he will at least have a clean face...

We have been filling in my last week of summer with lots of fun - going to the library and getting stacks of books, visiting friends, going to the park and going to karate class (Ian only, Simon sits with me and gives the running commentary of what is happening). I have exercised everyday this week and am hoping to keep it going next week before school.

Creatively...hmmm....I've finished a baby quilt complete (I promised myself that I had to finish my Ch. 4 before I could deliver it - that's tomorrow's job). Worked on an anniversary present and my pinwheel afghan. I'm getting sick of it, but I am not going to start a new knitting project until this one is done!

My schools have pictures taken before school to cut down on lost instructional time during the school year.
And it is easier to collect the paperwork and the payment with all the other registration forms. You'd be surprised at how many parents don't return forms that were sent home with students, or how many students "lose" papers, or how many students bring the paper without the check. Collecting that stuff can be a real nightmare, especially at my schools where the families are economically disadvantaged.
