Getting the kids ready to go back to school!

Oh it is that time again. I really dread getting the kids ready to go back to school. Seems like there is so much to do. It can be expensive also. My girls grow out of pretty much everything over the summer. Then the school supplies oh my goodness the school supplies. So much!

And then the shopping for clothes. Right now the girls are at the age they want a big say in what they get, but I have to say they are not always the best choices. It is always a struggle to get that compromise.
Well we survived this time around. The key to surviving it all is to bring backup! Yes Backup!! I was lucky enough to have a friend to help out. We had a great girls day out and all the work is done! We all survived the kids are set for the first day of school in a couple of weeks and my husband is extremely happy he didn't have to take part in the day!
