School supplies

When I was walking around Target the other day, the school supply display took me by surprise.

Is it really the end of July? Is it already time for the school supplies to come out?

I can’t believe it and I’m sure there are many kids that don’t want to believe it, but, new pencils, pens, folders and notebooks are in their future.

Here’s a little crystal ball of sorts in the form of some local districts’ school supplies. If there is a list that we are missing (for example, the Sparta School District), let us know!
