Final Friday, Back to School Edition

I know what you’re thinking.  No, it’s not the final Friday of the month (when I normally do my Final Friday post).  Today is the final Friday of my precious summer vacation.  Such a bittersweet day, it is. I guess it’s true what they say.  All good things do come to an end, huh?

I loathe the fact that I can no longer sleep until I decide it’s time to get up.  I now have to obey my alarm clock.  I now have to live my life strictly according to my Cozi calendar so as not to miss any important meetings, deadlines, events or the like.  I now have to check backpacks every evening to make certain that the “I don’t have any homework” declarations are indeed true.  I have to prepare lunches each night before going to bed.  I have to make wardrobe choices at night to avoid any potential last-minute morning mishaps that threaten my chances of getting everyone to their designated locations at just the right time.  I have to make arrangements to get this kid to practice and pick this one up.  Order this one’s costumes, pick up a poster for this project, send in money for this field trip, buy a t-shirt for this and that, and I’m sure that I’ve left out something. 

So, how will I spend my final Friday?  Shopping? Hanging with friends? Relaxing on the couch? Nope.  None of the above.  I’m spending my final Friday of summer…(drum roll please)…working in my classroom! 

Enjoy your Friday! 

 

Dressing a “tween” for back-to-school

As much as I hate to admit it, it’s time to start preparing for back-to-school.  I have two children, a boy and a girl, both in the “tween” stage of life.  Luckily, my son is care-free and will wear whatever I purchase for him without complaint.  He’s not into fancy smancy name brands or the hottest looks.  He’s prefers shorts, t-shirts, and flops or sneakers (depending on the weather), making shopping for him a cinch for me!

My daughter, on the other hand, is the ultimate fashionista.  She loves all things girly and can’t wait to get her hands on the newest and hottest fashions.  So, back-to-school shopping for her can be a little tricky.  I love helping her find hot styles for great prices.  So, before we head out to take advantage of some tax-free savings, we decided to do a little web browsing as to reduce the number of eye rolls and arguments that we might have while out shopping!

Well, now that we’ve spent time looking for things that fit her “style”, I’ll go mentally prepare for the fact that her mind will have completely changed by the time we get to the mall.

What styles are your tweenaged girls begging for this fall?
