School Daze

Since my mom gave the kids walmart giftcards for school supplies (thanks Mom!), we headed over to Walmart yesterday to spend them!
I was getting antsy since thegapgirl told us that she picked up those 25 cent crayola 24 pks I love so much!!!! I was wondering if they had the sale early or if it was gonna be all summer.
So, in a trip I thought would take an hour and turned into 3, we got everything on their lists.
And these are not lists from our day. Now they need tissues and anti-bacterial wipes and all other kinds of things that add up. And I like the metal thermos and insulated container. Those things are expensive, but usually last a long time as well.

The kids even got me to get the 64 count crayolas for school and the 24 pks (about 8 of them) for home. Things were cheap at walmart and they had the 25 cent crayons!!! I also grabbed my youngest pull-on pants for $5 a pair. They are not allowed to wear jeans at school and figured pull-on were alot better than a snap and zipper or worse yet a button! When a kid's gotta go, a kid's gotta go!

The kids put some stuff away and left some out. I am too lenient here I know.
But do you remember last night?
I went to check on the little guy and found him sleeping with big brother- cute, right?
But then I saw the couch.
I saw an empty brand new 64 crayola box.

Oh, no, he emptied the crayons.
But, wait that looks like more than 64 crayons!
Oh yes- he opened 8 packs of 24 count as well!!!
What to do? Wake the little cherub up? NEVER

This morning I asked him why and all he told me was, "cuz".
I made him apologize to the kids and then we sorted and sorted and filled the boxes- boxes that I put up this time. Live and Learn....

  9. That is too funny with the crayons! We did the shopping earlier in the week, but the sorting and packing back packs is happening tomorrow. Not only do we have extensive supply lists here in Alabama, we also have uniforms to purchase. That was a shock for me, in PA I had to buy next to nothing for school! Oh well....I kinda had fun buying all the new stuff for the kids, and they enjoyed the shopping trip too! Thank God for Wal Mart!
