One step closer to school!

I can officially say, that besides the unexpected things, ALL school supplies have been bought, organized and are ready to go to their new homes!

Last Friday, I took Beth to go school supply shopping, hoping it would help her feel better about her new school. It KINDA worked. We made a stop at Toys-R-Us because I had a $10 off $50 coupon...but it was a complete bust, EXCEPT for Beth finding her "dream backpack." I had talked about avoiding characters, but this backpack literally made her stop in her tracks. Its our beloved Fancy Nancy. It was unavoidable and HAD to be bought. Luckily the lunchbox was free. However, the lunchbox is too small and doesn't have the features I wanted, so I bought a different lunchbox to use, as well.

And note to moms - don't go school supply shopping at Toys-R-Us. HORRIBLE selection and high prices.

We then went to Target where she picked out folders, crayons, pencils, glue, etc..... Target or Walmart would be my suggestions...HUGE selection - low prices!

Sarah Katherine picked out this backpack for her first year in Nursery School. I'm going to have her full name monogrammed on it. (and I got the matching lunchbox for Beth!)

So, I'm done! 1st grade and 3-year-old Nursery school, here we come!

Em would LOVE that Fancy Nancy backpack. Do y'all have a Learning Express near? Ours has Fancy Nancy parties every now and then. They're free (ages 3-7, I think), you just have to sign up early enough to get a spot (they limit to about 7 girls). Lots of fun.

I love the butterfly bag too. :)
