Is anyone else running into uniform issues during this final stretch? My kids' uniforms are looking ragged. And Matt's are too small really. But come on...two more weeks. I'm surely not buying new ones at this point. I feel slightly bad stuffing them into these old things and taking them to school though. They looked so sharp back in September!

If your kids don't wear uniforms, have they made the switch to shorts yet? It is 90 degrees here all of a sudden.

Yes!! We're having the same problem! Some of their shirts I tossed last week because they just looked soo bad (mainly the white ones - white, what was the school thinking??) Then pants, we're down to about 2 each so I'm doing laundry a lot more often! But with only 9 days left, I am not buying more this year!

Oh and we did shorts pretty much all year, maybe 2 weeks total they had to wear pants.

It's always the same every year! Jaidyn needed new shoes, there was no way they could survive the last few weeks. I'm kinda hoping she won't need new ones straight away when she starts up in August, but knowing my luck she will!
Lucas's sweaters are getting too short in the arms, this last week we've had some fab weather so he hasn't needed them, but the cooler weather has come back, so he's gonna start wearing them again. Refuse to buy new ones as he starts High School in August (they start HS at 11/12 here) and the uniform is different so new stuff won;t get worn again. UGH!

Hi! I mostly lurk, but we are having the same problem! My daughter's skirts didn't make it! We have a month left of school and they didn't fit anymore about two weeks ago. I had to go to this cheapo tshirt whearhouse and found 3 blue skirts for 8.99 each. I just bought them because she needed something. I could have gotten away with two and just washed often, but I bought 3. I have a niece to hand down the uniforms to though. And the white shirts, well they look bad, but owell! We will just get through. They have the schools logo on them and we are switching schools next year so we are not buying anymore, otherwise I would just buy new ones and use them next year. I buy shoes as she needs them.
