Preparing for school...

I printed out the Kindergarten list of "must haves" and I was shocked to find out it's a full page! I know that's something I'll probably get used to but, I'm not there yet. So, I went with my list to TARGET and stood there with all the other Mom's picking out everything needed. Good thing supplies are dirt cheap right now. I am a deal lover - why not save money if you can! (Have I ever told you about Pocket Your Dollars? It's awesome. Every couple of days she sends out an email with deals all over the Twin Cities. I'm saving money all the time. Sign up - it's free!) I'm learning that school is expensive. Clothing, supplies, accessories...gulp. I know this is just the beginning I've heard what it's like once they start in sports and activities. I guess we'll just have to adjust the budget as we go :) Adriah is going to a Charter School so I'm investing (and I mean investing!) in her school uniform. She is going to look so cute! I will take pictures!

Since, I feel a little behind the ball...any wise words for the new school mom. Anything you've learned that I should know??? And I mean any-thing. From the first day to the last day. Us Moms need to stick together.
