i'm a total sucker for school supplies....

do remember in You've Got Mail how she talks about loving the fall and something about a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils? that spoke straight to my heart. i too am a total sucker for school supplies.
today when i went out to get the mail i found a packet of information from henry's new school. in the packet was a pink piece of paper that had his very first school supply list. yes- the sappy girl that i am did cry a happy tear over that list. i have thought on many occasions about the whole "back to school" scenario that would one day play out in my own family. i have looked forward to taking henry to buy his pencils, glue, crayons, scissors, etc. i am looking forward to using my label maker to label all his items with his name on them. my little man is growing up and i am so thankful that we get the opportunity daily to pray for him and to prepare him to face this world.

thank you Lord for school supply lists and for all that is ahead for henry as he begins his school career this fall. i am so excited to see what You will teach all of our family through this adventure!

I got the list too, but I had the complete oppisite feeling. I was more like AGHHHHH! But one good thing is that it is only one child I must shop for this year. Always look at the bright side.

Shop early. It will start becoming a mad house at stores in the school supply area the closer it gets to school starting.

I can't believe my darling Henry is getting so big!

From a teacher, thank you for being excited...we need more parents like you. I can't tell you how many pens, pencils, notebooks that I buy for my students...not even my own children. Thank you!
