Countdown to school

It's Back-to-school time.
Some schools around here start next week.
The 9-year-old's school begins the week after.

I didn't get around to doing back-to-school shopping before she left for California, but now that she's back, she's anxious to get on with it. Before she left, she chose a backpack from LL Bean. I should have ordered it that minute, because when I actually did try to order it, it was out of stock. So, instead of a blue backpack, she now has a purple and blue one. It arrived while she was gone and was she excited to see it last night after I picked her up from the airport!

I hear that Office Depo has a huge back-to-school sale going on. (or beginning on Sunday, I forget which) And some other stores are, too. We'll hit the sales later this weekend.

Have YOU bought all your back-to- school items?
Have your kids chosen the outfit they'll wear on the first day of school?
