  • I haven't got the supply list yet. They start school on Wednesday. I've decided this year to wait until the list come home before we do the shopping.

  • My boys are grown, so no more buying for them, but I am in school. The hardest thing to find right now is a voice recorder (like a tape recorder). Everywhere I looked, they were sold out!

  • Since we've started homeschooling I've not had a problem finding supplies except for Crayola's Model Magic - finally found it at Hobby Lobby. One year, though, we had a teacher list Prang water colors (no other brands) and while they were much better than regular water colors, they were also a lot harder to find.
