NOW THAT'S FUNNY
The time has come: I've got to hit the stores and get the kids their back to school supplies. I typically put this off until the last minute because I hate to think about folders and pencils in the middle of summer, even if they are on sale.
I printed out the lists from the schools' websites. I have a fifth grader and an eighth grader, so I expected the typical "pens, markers, loose leaf paper" type of list. Imagine my surprise when I saw an extra long list, filled with the usual items, but including now a whole slew of new items, apparently designed to help out the schools during this scaled back budget-minded year.
