1st Day of School, and I Loves Me Some Wal-Mart

Here are some pictures of the kiddos' first day of school. I miss them when they are gone, but I do love to get back to our routine.
Do you see the look of pain on the little one's face? That is my-mom-is-torturing-me-with-her-camera-idous.
And I thought you would like a closeup of the most special shirt we bought for the first day of school. Have you heard that one before? Do children think it is a birthright to finish a level before they can do anything else? Will they be struck by lightning and die right on the spot if, *GASP*, they don't finish THE LEVEL? Is it the 11th Commandment ... Thou shalt finish thy level?

Sometimes I drop a tiny little gift off in the teachers' boxes just to say thanks for all the work they have already done, and get the year started off right. I found these notepads at Walmart. Cute, cute, cute.


How is your week?

Happy Back to School! The kids are adorable. I love that shirt. I think I need that for my big kid- aka husband. Love those memo pads. And LOVE WallyWorld.

Oh, Mrs J!
We ALWAYS have to finish the level here, and also have that VERY shirt!

Those note pads are "A" for adorable!!
I do love me some chez wallez, but really try to limit my time there, as it can take a big bite out of my "C" for checkbook.

Happy back to school! It's a great day, isn't it? ;o) I have heard the phrase "just one more level" more times in life than I care to admit. Ugh. CUTE notepads from Walmart!! I want to buy a few for my teacher friend.

Such a sweet gesture. I always want to do something for my children's teachers. A small gift like notepads would be great. Thanks for sharing.
