After school? Are their school clothes nicer than everyday wear? 

Do they wear athletic wear and sweats to school on a regular basis?

i wish he would change because he tears holes in his jeans. i'm never home when he gets home from school and convincing my husband of the necessity of this is rather difficult since he has holes in his own dang pants! lol. 

i also try to avoid letting him wear athletic clothes to school, but i will let him every once in a while. he did today, actually. he would live in sweatpants if i let him (wouldn't we all, though? lol!).

Jackson usually just strips completely after he gets home from school. I hadn't sent him to school in athletic clothes for a while until Thursday since I wanted him to be comfy for our trip. I did find out those track pants are too short on him and he makes it seem worse when he hikes his pants up to his arm pits lol

Yes! Otherwise all her good clothes would be ruined. She's a mud-loving, tree-climbing, grass stained tomboy.

My girls wear school uniforms but its a little loose on the policies.  We don't have to have specific clothes....just black or khaki pants/shorts/skirts and green/white/black collared shirts.  DD1 usually wears black basketball shorts and my twins usually wears khaki shorts or, like today, black leggings.  Unfortunately, by the time i pick them up from their afterschool program, we are on our way to practices so they may change their shirts (sometimes they don't...haha). 

On non-practice days, they've already spent a couple of hours playing outside and such so when we get home, they are finishing homework, chores, dinner and then kicking back.

I wish all schools had uniforms. It would make things easier!

Uniform with a snowsuit, since it's been in the negatives here and snowing.

It's FANTASTIC!  I love it.  I'm a little worried about next year because my oldest daughter will go to middle school and they don't have uniforms.  She hates most of the clothes that are out there for the girls and she is the most picky kid when it comes to clothes so mornings may get tough.  Maybe I'll just get her a bunch of t-shirts and she can still wear her basketball shorts.

My son wears a uniform. When he gets home he usually changes into jeans and a t-shirt or some sweats depending on if he is going out or not or has something to do.

DDs only in preschool/daycare, so she wears play clothes to school, they come home so messy sometimes! but I imagine she won't change once she gets into school, she wears comfy clothes and there aren't any uniforms or anything, so there won't be a need.

Ironically my DS has ruined and tore more clothes in KG than he ever did in pre-K, or pre-school. I am like 'what in the world are your doing at recess, buddy?"
