Just when we were getting used to the leisurely days of summer; it’s time for the kids to go back to school. As the summer winds down we leave behind memories of fun filled days with family and friends. Most kids wish summer could last forever. Parents on the other hand, may welcome the end of summer break. The entertainment ideas and money have just about run out and it’s now time get ready for school.

Ready or not, the time to buy new clothes, backpacks, notebooks, pencils, and other school supplies is here.
