Back to School

It's that time of year again....Back to School! The kids start school on August 20th, and this will be the first year that all 4 of my kids will be in school. Yes, if you can believe it, Taryn is starting Kindergarten this year. Andrew is moving up in the world to Middle School and Ethan and Alex will be in the 4th grade. Where does the time go?

I do have some issues with this though...I'm starting to wonder where my tax money is going if I have to spend $200.00 on school supplies for them to take to school, and these are not recommendations, this is the stuff they have to have. No clothes or any extras, this was the basic school supply list, and I bought the cheap stuff too! No fancy notebooks or folders, just solid colors that cost $.09 a piece. It's sort of ridiculous. Enough ranting now...

We are busy with the school prep, Andrew is going to registration tonight and Taryn has her physcial (Dave is taking her, thank goodness) on Friday. Hope you all are enjoying your back to school time! :)
