I made my second school supply pass through Target yesterday. D’s kindergarten list is pretty straightforward: crayons, pencil box, one folder, one notebook, etc. Colin’s is more challenging. Do you remember this from last year: binders, a certain solar calculator, dividers, composition notebook, regular notebook, etc.
Last year Colin was complaining that everybody borrowed pencils from him. The day I went to school with him in the morning, I discovered he was carrying around a pencil box from class to class. He had pencils by the box full at the ready. I’m going to see if I can wean him down to some sort of pouch this year. I have purchased them in every size and shape in the hopes we will hit something. Also I got one giant binder instead of four. That was an option and I like it. Hopefully it will eliminate the forgotten binder.
This reminds me that he needs a new gym bag for bringing home stinky gym clothes. Last year’s bag DIED.
Would this be easier or harder if I had my kids in a row age-wise?
