All of H’s books have arrived, L’s should be in next week. I had a stack of school books ready to topple over next to my desk. Spelling, grammar, math books in two languages, French books galore. Paper, notebooks, dictionaries. Pencils, colored pencils, erasers, pens and extra ink. It was seriously getting out of hand.

This weekend we made a spur of the moment trip to Ikea.

shelvingOh, don’t be fooled. Those boxes are empty. How to organize all the supplies and extra school things (I despise the word “manipulatives” and will never again use it on this blog) in those boxes is a task I’ve yet to take on.  But it’s taking form.

We’re getting organized and it’s a good feeling.
