Ah the sweet scents of glue...

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address." -- Joe in You've Got Mail

I SO get this. Tonight I took the precious angels to the Target for school supply bonanza. I cannot help myself. Natalie's list says "1 pack glue sticks." They are 22 cents. 22 cents! I bought five. Ella's list says, "1 spiral notebook." Ella picked out a blue hologram notebook. And then I bought a 5 pk of spares for 50 cents. 50 stinking cents. Crayons -- 22 cents for a 24 pk. I loaded up.

The only thing I'm struggling with really, is their desires for non-girlie colors. Ella wants everything in royal blue. So I found the girlie hologram notebook. And I caved on the pencil box (maybe we'll add some stickers or something). Natalie wants everything in green. Which is a little easier.

I want to get Ella a new backpack with coordinating lunch box. Set up a little study area in her room. But I guess it's just kindergarten. That can wait. But maybe I'll just browse Lands End a little...

I, too, love the background. And I can't wait to take my kids school shopping--I think that was always my favorite part of the new school year!
