Last year at this exact time of the year, I took each of our kiddos shopping for school supplies–on their own. Each had their own afternoon blocked off to spend one on one, purchasing school supplies and choosing a place to get a snack or a drink. Each experience was as different as each of the kids are. It’s always amazing when you get a child of four alone for a few hours. One of my most favorite memories of last summer. Each outing was as unique as each of the kids were. And I loved it. And we didn’t have a cart full of craziness and mayhem as we searched for the exact trapper keeper, erasers, 20 #2 pencils, and Expo brand dry erase markers.
