Here We Go Again

  • 5 back packs
  • 10 pair of shoes
  • 5 boxes of Kleenex
  • 3 large 2 small bottles of hand sanitizer
  • 8 containers of Lysol wipes (because some were supposed to bring large containers, but the normal size was cheaper per wipe, so we just doubled up for some classes)
  • 106 Crayons
  • 30 markers
  • 24 Colored pencils
  • 50-60 pencils
  • 40 pencil top erasers
  • 4 large erasers
  • 5 pencil boxes
  • 1 pencil bag
  • 1 3 ring binder
  • 28 folders, some needing to be specific colors, which seems to be the norm at most schools because they were VERY hard to find!
  • 3 bottles of Elmer's school glue
  • 4 glue sticks (the large ones that equal 4 small glue sticks
  • 10 red pens
  • 4 other pens
  • 4 highlighters
  • 4 dry erase markers
  • 3 rulers
  • 8 rolls of scotch tape
  • 5 packs of wide lined loose leaf paper
  • 14 wide lined note books (again, specific colors 4 some)
  • 2 nutritious snacks
  • 5 pair Fiskars scissors
  • 1 ream copy paper
  • 1 water bottle
  • 5 lunch bags
  • 5 insulated drink containers, because I FINALLY broke down and bought them knowing I will quickly save $ not buying juice boxes.
  • 32 pair of socks, all looking VERY different in hopes of making mating socks less of a chore!
All supplies labeled with children's names

I should have taken a picture of all the supplies piled up all over the living room floor but the backpacks were packed and in the 'burb, so you'll have to settle for this:

We are ready for school to start tomorrow.... Kinda.

Oh my....

Seriously, you are so organized. We still have three weeks, but I fear even then I will not be quite this in order.

Good job!

Praying their first day goes well!
