Almost less than a week and school will be back in session here in Petoskey. Some local schools have already started but my kiddos start the day after Labor Day like many other Michigan kiddos. Summer is winding down and fast! My kids aren’t thrilled to be going back but I’ll be honest, I’m looking forward to getting back into a normal routine. Summer is definitely my favorite season but I’m itching for normal routine again.
Last week our local elementary school mailed out the class supply lists. I took each of my kiddos separately to grab their school supplies and spend some one on one time with mom. They love getting to spend some time alone with me AND I always let them pick out something special.
My kids love Grandpa Shorter’s, so after grabbing the essential supplies for school: binders, folders and notebooks, we headed into Grandpa Shorter’s to check out some of the fun and unique Back to School Features that are currently available in-store only.
