After a summer that seemed to fly by at record speed, Molly’s school brought us back to the reality that life is not one continual vacation. Although one can always hope.
A robocall last week informed us that Meet the Teacher day would soon be upon us, and today was that day. So ready or not, here it comes!
We prepared very early this year by purchasing school supplies in July. I learned my lesson last year as a rookie Kindergarten mom. You must buy school supplies an entire month before school starts if you don’t want to run around to 18 stores looking for something that is sold out at every.single.store. How crazy is that?
Even at my advanced age, I still love brand new school supplies. All those pointy pencils with perfect erasers, brand new unbroken crayons, markers and glue sticks that aren’t dried out. Reminds me of my childhood. The hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes, on the other hand were really part of that memory. We reveled in our germy-ness, I guess!
Molly also enjoys her school supplies. This is the last that she will see of them, however. They all go into a communal stockpile for the entire classroom to use. Another example of how schools are turning our children into little
socialists children who can share.
Yep, school’s great, but we are sooo going to miss summer!
