If you told me right now that I needed to be getting my son ready for kindergarten in fall, I would laugh in your face! It’s only July 20 and I have plenty of time–joke’s on me. I just went to Target and did my usual dash to the back corner looking for fun, clearance summer stuff and what did I find? School supplies! Panic attack. First, because I am going to have a son in kindergarten at the big school! And second, because where are all of the clearance garden items I needed?
The panic attack subsided when I found the perfect outdoor grilling set for my husband at a steal.
But, that doesn’t fix how this back to school thing crept up on me. I am truly excited for my son. It’s going to be an amazing experience for him and I can’t wait to get involved in parent organizations, sporting events, and fundraising. Growing up with two older sisters, my family spent of plenty of time sitting in school gyms and outdoor tracks relying heavily on concession stands to get us through the day. The even better benefit is that school fundraising groups that rely on money to fund their programs run many of these concession stands.
I have the perfect thing for that, too.
