In preparation for this momentous occasion, I purchased a mountain of school supplies and was required to label it all with their names.
And I mean, they make you WRITE THE KID'S NAME ON EVERYTHING.
I don't mean just on the two notebooks, eight folders, one pencil box, two erasers, one pair of scissors, four boxes of crayons, et cetera, for each child.
I mean each individual thing. That's 96 crayons, 20 pencils, and 40 markers EACH.
But I'm not really complaining.
It's a small price to pay in order to get them into school ALL DAY LONG.
And look how happy they are about it!
That is, they were happy until they found out they were going be in separate classes. But that's another story...
