This week marks a big milestone in the Campbell family. My youngest son is heading off to Kindergarten and we’re looking forward to a great school year!
I have to admit, I probably enjoy the back to school shopping much more than my kids do. I still love looking at all the pretty new notebooks, folders, and packages of fresh crayons that line store shelves.
