Dropped the kids off for the first day of school: no new shoes, no haircuts, forgot to tell them what classrooms they're in.

But I swear they were MENTALLY prepared.

Sounds like my first day this school year. We teachers were furloughed for 60% of our preplanning week.

Jayar, Tough stuff, man! Our school system is in budget cruch, too. Us parents try to support the teachers as much as possible with supplies and volunteering. Let me know if you have other ideas. And now that I know you're a teacher tell us the secret: what do you guys really want for holiday gifts??
Milly, You're hilarious.

Same here...plus, we neglected to give them their bus number. First day of school and we've already been called to the office!

Amy, thanks for asking, and thanks for the support. Can't speak for all my colleagues, but I know for sure I'm full up on anything with an apple theme...probably best to ask.
