School starts next week. Today the kids and I stopped at school so they could drop off the rest of their school supplies. As always, we are behind. We should have dropped all our supplies off at registration but we didn’t have the shopping list complete.
Do you remember when school supplies were simply a few pencils and a notebook? Maybe, if you were extra cool you brought a Trapper Keeper.
These days the kids must come equipped with three ring binders, pens in a variety of colors and oddly, three rolls of scotch tape. I wonder if they are going to school or performing a financial audit.
Of course, in addition to dropping off their supplies, the girls wanted to decorate their home away from home for the next nine months. So, they brought in pictures, magnets, and cute little baskets to hold all their stuff. One of the girls even clipped a package of spearmint gum to her locker door. Now, her locker will smell refreshingly minty.
They spent a lot of time deciding just where they should hang each picture (the dog got top billing over the cat). My son, on the other hand, simply shoved all his stuff in his locker and slammed the door before it could escape.
The only decoration the boy wants for his locker is a disco ball, sadly I have yet to find a locker sized disco ball so his locker is plain.
I don’t remember having too many decorations in my locker, maybe a picture or two. How about you?
