Last weekAugust 11, 2007
Next week is the last week of summer for Sierra. She start school on the 20th. I am excited and nervous for her. She will be in first grade at a new school. The classes are longer, running from 8 to 3pm. My school starts the week after and somewhere in there we will have to get Madeleine’s schedule set up for her speech therapy.
I am buying the school supplies, pencils, erasers, etc. I bought her a lunch box and have found out that they make lunch boxes differently then they use to. When I was a kid you could find a plastic or tin lunch box with a thermos. Thermos came in lunch boxes standard.
It seems that now you have to purchase them separately if you can find them. At target, you can find something like a thermos (or sippy cup) and it runs about $15-$17, No Kidding!
Some lunch bags come with these plastic water bottles. Which, look like they will leak.
I don’t understand. Whatever happened to the thermos’ with the lids the ones that you could pour your milk in? What happened to the ability to bring soup or hot chocolate to school?
I would hate to think I need to back to school shop at an antique store, LOL.
This weekend I will go through her dresser and find out what clothes she can still wear. Both her and Madeleine have grown the past couple of weeks.
Tomorrow I will have some finished socks. One is the first sock of a new pair and the other is the second sock of an old pair. 🙂
