Back To School Shopping and Other Tortures

Last night I took the girls to Wal-Mart to do back to school shopping. We had fun picking out everything on their lists. Alyssa's list of supplies was very thorough, while Anna's seemed to be missing a few things (like binders and notebooks) which Anna took surprisingly hard.

She was ready to cancel the entire trip because she didn't feel she could trust the list Wal-Mart supplied. I finally convinced her to calm down by threatening to eliminate the ice cream from my shopping list.

Let me just say I love the self check outs at Wal-Mart. Alyssa is an expert. Here's a little clip of her in action.

That's really cute.

I haven't done any school shopping yet. Yikes! My kids keep asking, and I just keep putting it off. I've got to get with it or I'll miss those great 10 cent notebook sales.

I always hate back to school shopping. There is always one item on the list that is nearly impossible to get (some special art notebook or something)and you have to drive all over town looking for. Times that by four children and you end up wanting to shoot yourself.

Glad it went easily for you.
