This year I have 2 babes off to school, and it breaks my heart. Why do they have to grow up so fast? Don't get me wrong, I think I'm going to quite enjoy some peace in the house; but knowing I can't have anymore babies and seeing 2 of the three we have start school.... well, it makes me sad.
And I'm honestly baffled byhow much it costs to clothe kids for school. Stupid uniforms! $110 for 2 pairs of shoes (1 each boy), $197 for 10 pairs of pants and 4 pairs of shorts (5 pants, 2 shorts per boy), $30 for socks for both, $104 for 10 polo shirts (5 each) and 2 backpacks. I still have to buy undershirts and underwear! I can't believe how much it is. Oh well, it's needed, but still.
This week we'll go for haircuts and get our last minute items and be ready for school next week! I had my stomach dropping moment this past week when I got the letter from Orion's school saying who his teacher is. *sigh* 1 baby left!
