Note: I”m a member of the Target Inner Circle and Target generously provided some gift cards so that the kids and I could go back to school shopping. All opinions expressed below are my own, of course.
Actually I shouldn”t complain about it because I really do love back to school and all the new-pencil-fresh-sheets-of-paper joy that comes with it. It is a time of year full of possibilities. Hopefully that feeling is contagious and spreads to my kiddos, too.
When a friend heard we were back to school shopping she was taken aback, “why are you back to school shopping? Don”t you still homeschool?” Yes, homeschoolers use pencils and gluesticks, too. Oh, boy, do we ever!
Also, this year my kids are involved in more clubs and activities than ever, so we added some “on the go” gear like lunchboxes and backpacks to our shopping list along with our annual restocking of the school supply cubbies.
