I've started all ready. Seems like we begin each year earlier then the year before.

We are almost done with supplies and clothes. My kids go back on the Aug. 24th, but dd is in camp now, then she comes home for 1 night, I throw them both in the car, and they are gone for 2 weeks to camp. While they are gone, I leave for a business trip, and will be gone for 1 week after they come back, so we don't have time befire school starts.

Finished and back to school already! I dropped of the supplies on Wednesday and DD started today...DS starts next week in Kindy. Funny how you said it seems earlier every year...I hardly have time to get over the previous year.

Haven't even begun to think about starting - lol. Actually we haven't even gotten dd's supply list yet. It comes mid-august. I already have my sons list, but I haven't even looked at it. They wear uniforms, but in september they can wear summer uniform, which they still have from the spring so I won't even buy the new jumpers and pants until mid-september.

The thing that annoys me a little is all the notebooks and paper and journals they need to buy and at the end of the year they bring them back home again barely used.

I have purchased school supplies but not back to school clothes. I am going to have to drag him shopping to try on because he is so hard to fit. They start tomorrow (Aug. 4th)so......wish me luck!!!

Good luck with the shopping KJACC! I hope ds is cooperative and tries on all the clothes you want him too, with minimal if no fussing :0).

I so hear you on that one! I also have to have my ds try on the bottoms, he's so skinny, what may fit his waist, won't fit him in length...and if it fits him in length it's usually too big on the waist..ugh!

We are the opposite.....to get them to fit his waist they are waaaay to long....he needs a little elastic!! It would be so much easier if I could leave him in the dressing room to run back and forth with the sizes or styles, but I am to afraid this days to do that! That is sad....
Good luck with your shopping!!
