It was three in the afternoon the day before school was to start.
The Bungalow'56 children were starting to panic.
Their mother had not yet taken them to buy their school supplies.
Their mother likes to live dangerously... on the edge.
Much to the girl's relief the supplies were bought several hours before Staples closed.
Their mother figured it was an exciting way to start the new school year.
In fact, this may become a Bungalow'56 tradition, as...
it wasn't very busy.
Then the ritual of preparing the school
loot supplies began.
Not everything went smoothly, but everyone eventually
managed to have the backpacks ready and waiting at the door.
No longer feeling as though she needs to write in the third person....
I love new school supplies, don't you?
The bright colours, the smell of new erasers, and the clean sheets of lined paper.
The possibilities are endless.
Who knows what wonderful ideas and experiences are awaiting them?
And they just seem.... ready.
Our yearly "first day" school picture turned out wonderfully.
Eldest didn't start for another day, but she wanted to see her sisters off.
Another year of learning awaits.
I wonder what they'll end up teaching me : )
