When do you start shopping for school supplies? We do our shopping a week before Meet the Teacher day. I think that’s usually the time when stores put there very competitive pricing out for consumers to get advantage of.
I also do online shopping for school supplies. There was one time a store offered free shipping on a minimum order. I browsed that store and found some wide-ruled composition notebooks for cheap, crayons, colored pencils, and plastic folders. I added some office supplies for my husband to meet the minimum price set for free shipping. In this super hot summer in Texas, going out to shop is not quite exciting for me. I would rather do online shopping in the comfort of my home.
So I finished all of my school supplies shopping. I always make sure darling daughter’s school supplies for the new school year is complete before meeting her new teacher. If there is something needed for later, it will be easy.
It is back to school again in America. Are you all excited? 🙂 My darling daughter is now in Second Grade. Wow! She’s excited as I am. She helped me buy school supplies at Walmart this weekend. We just back from vacation so still jet-lagged shopping. Where do you buy school supplies?
‘Wish you all a happy back-to-school. It is going to be an amazing school year.
Oh my! It is back to school again. K is now officially a First Grader. Today, we received the postcard from her new teacher. And we met her this evening at the new school. All the school supplies needed for the whole year were submitted this evening.
Postcard from the school.
As you know, our school district did some rezoning because K’s previous school is over populated. The students who are affected with the rezoning will attend the newer elementary school, which is 5 miles distance from our house. Hopefully, K will be joined by a few of her classmates in Kindergarten from her previous school. She will be delighted about that seeing a familiar face.
Being a transferee makes you feel uneasy. It is always takes time to adjust to the new school. I was a transferee, too, when I was in school. In fact, I was transferred to three schools because my family moved three times-twice during my grade school days and once when I was in middle school. It was tough because I didn’t remember my parents encouraged me or comforted me during the adjustment period. This is a new challenge for me to surpass. I will do my best to be able to give my child the encouragement she needs in this transition.
K is somewhat excited, though. This is because she will not be able to see her cousin in the new school. My cousin and I talked to our girls and assured them that everything will be fine. They will be seeing each other again in Middle School, and they will always have play dates.
Though I am not quite excited for the back to school coming Monday, but I am happy that we all had a wonderful summer. I am hoping for a great school year, too.
