You are always hiding behind the camera, but here – I caught you! Just a part of organizing committee here – some folks are missing 😦

Foody Thursday – Ukrainian Doughnuts – Пампушки

Yes, those are the ones my son was making and selling to get some cash for his new bike. We got tons of compliments and tons of recipe requests. So, here it is, so simple – 13-year old who never cooks can make it!

Back To School Supply List for Kids

Don't hate – appreciate! I know you are not ready, bit it is less then a week left. And you do want to enjoy your Labor Day long weekend, right? So, do it now – make sure your little ones, bigger ones and real big ones (like my high school student – whats-up-Mom) are all ready.

Back to School List

Ready – Steady – Check your current supplies – Shop if needed!

1. A sturdy, supportive backpack  – get a good quality one, this is not an area to save on – your child would be using it daily, for the whole year, so don't get lured by sparkly, glittery, super-hero-princess ones. Water resistant would be great, with covered closures, lots of pockets, comfortable straps. Dark and solid covers are the best, unless you are a huge fan of washing your child's backpack daily
2. A three-ring binder
3. Glue sticks (at least three for the year)
4. Scissors (blunt ended for younger kids, pointed for older ones)
5. Ballpoint pens
6. No. 2 pencils (Stick with this classic to avoid classroom competition over whose writing utensil is the coolest — or most impractical.) – got my pack of 25 pre-sharpened at Costco last weekend, happy-happy
7. Colored pencils
8. Pencil sharpener (hand-held with a top to collect shavings)
9. Erasers – white and soft for No 2 pencils, pink for the rest of the stuff
10. Water-based markers
11. A four-ounce bottle of white glue
12. Highlighters
13. Spiral-bound or composition notebooks
14. Loose-leaf notebook paper
15. Pocket folders
16. Printer paper and ink cartridges (for your home computer)
17. Ruler with English and metric measurements
18. Scotch tape
19. Stapler and staples
20. Lunch Box, snack containers, water bottles
21. Math Set
22. Calculator
23. Locker accessories and combination lock

Happy Shopping!
