Re: School supply lists

Ours was posted online a few weeks ago.

I'm gonna hit Target at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow to try to take advantage of tax-free weekend & sales, before the madness hits. I'm afraid if I wait I'll be scrounging through the leftovers.

AHA! All this time, I've been so frustrated with our pencil sharpeners at home. Can't seem to find a good one. But maybe all along, it's been shoddy pencils! We have so many pencils that we've picked up randomly (like in birthday party goody bags) that I don't buy any. But maybe I can ditch those and buy some Ticonderoga pencils to use at home.
