- I hear you! My DD is my baby and while I am excited for her to be going to school (as she can't wait), i am quite sad!
It's the end of having my babies at home with me, and I will be working full time
- so definitely a big change for us!
Tomorrow we are going to Target to look at the school skorts/shorts (as the kids only have to wear plain black on their bottom half), shoes and the socks.
I have been hanging out for the Williams / Mathers Fusion sale as we got hte boys the Lynx joggers last year which they wore every day and they lasted really well. Just not sure which way to go as this year we need school shoes and joggers for each - and it adds up so quickly!! I am going to the school next week sometime to pay the first terms fees, and to pick up their school tops (as they are purple with a black collar and emblem), hats which also have an emblem, and a few school dresses for DD. We are fortunate we are up in Darwin so we don't need a winter uniform!! Since DH and I will both be working full time I am getting them 5 lots of uniforms each, so I only have to wash on Friday afternoons! I thought this would be the best, since they will wear them all year they should last quite well. I hate having to wash through the week!
We also need to go and get lunchboxes and bags. The kids have fridges in their rooms thank goodness, so I am just going to get the big lunch bags and use my tupperware containers to separate fruit break (which is generally a fruit salad), with their lunch, and recess.
We have a ton of drink bottles which look brand new, so just need to go through them and work out if we need a few more. We have to send two bottles of water to school with the kids due to the heat, so i can see their bags being full just of food and drink!
