Back to School

Katie

My daughter and I just got back from the store after buying all those things (or at least almost all) that she needs for school.

I’ve gotten used to most of the changes:

The fact that stationery supplies for an 8th grader cost as much as a college credit hour cost me in the 1960s

Getting the list of supplies electronically before school even starts

Daughters need to be wearing the right outfit in order to shop – even for school supplies

What I haven’t gotten used to is that my youngest is headed into 8th grade; her slightly older brother will be driving to school; and that her older-older brother has orders to New England.

These are just kids – MY KIDS, for crying out loud. They’re not supposed to be so grown.
