Do you have 1st day outfits picked out yet?

I am feeling uninspired and still dreading losing my kids for 40 hours a week again.... trying to get in the mood/spirit !

  • Nope, and probably won't have them picked out until the kids get dressed on the first day of school. It's still quite a ways off though, my kids don't go back until after Labor Day.

  • We don't buy new school clothes until a couple weeks into the school year. I do take them to get new gym shoes. I'm looking forward to the school year starting. I volunteer at school, so I'm there, and our boys love it. Maybe do that, and then you won't have to be away from them so much...

  • nothing but the shoes! lol..he learned to tie shoelaces (YAY! just a few hours!), so we bought a new pair of athletic shoes..he'll need them for gym-days, anyway.
    other than that, i'm sure he'll throw on a shirt/shorts and head out the door. he can't bored at home!

  • Not, yet. We'll probably pick out the 1st week's outfits the weekend before school starts.

  • No. Probably some of the same clothes they are wearing right now (during the summer). It's still going to be wicked hot here and I don't see much of a reason to buy new clothes until fall (meaning when the weather gets a little colder and they need more coverage).

  • So far, yes...DD has picked out her first day outfit. But that is only between the ones she has that could easily change between now and then.

  • No I don't , I let my girls pick out what they want to wear themselves.
