I've been running around like crazy getting ready to go back to school and work! Tomorrow is the big day for us. This first week is going to be nuts. My son is starting 3rd grade and my daughter preschool. BTDT moms, when do/did your kiddos go back to school? And did you find your school supply list is growing more and more expensive every year?! Shopping was a nightmare this year!

My kiddos went back on the 7th! Yes each year it seems they need more and more stuff. I know that some of it is just for the teachers stash at school.

Loralei started 2nd grade yesterday! And yes, the list was insane. I dont mind sending in supplies, at all... but dang, let me buy the cheaper version, lol. 10 Pre-sharpened pencils, $2.50! For 10 pencils! Maybe I'm cheap, but thats insane! Then again, I shouldnt complain... I see how much those graphing calculators are costing parents with older kids. Yikes!

My kids go back on the 2nd of September.

When the list says my 4th grader needs 48 pencils, I say, yah, I don't think so, and I send 8. I figure if he needs a pencil(or a glue stick or whatever), through out the year, I can get him one. No way am I sending that many pencils(or whatever it may be), to school. Insane.

Aid. Is in preschool and all I needed to buy him were supplies for home. I know it's going to get worst each year.

Schools here went back on Aug. 18th. We don't really have a set school year or summer break, we take breaks as needed, but our homeschool PE classes and 4-H meetings start back Sept. 8th.

My girls went back on the 18th. The supply lists were nuts, but we managed to get almost everything on them. I may have forgotten to sharpen all the pencils like they wanted though.

Yep, us too. They were the ones that were 10 for $2.50! Dixon ticonderoga, I think, is what we had to have.

I dont mind sending in supplies, I always send in extra to help the teacher out. But dang, it adds up! Loralei needed 1 pack, but I bought 4 (3 sent to school, 1 at home). I hate to admit it, but they really are great pencils. Lol

Our schools go back next week, but we started homeschooling at the beginning of August so we can take a few weeks off when the baby comes

School books and supplies are always a pretty penny for us!
