Last night I told Jack that I would pick up some school supplies for him after my fall orientation meetings on campus today, but I needed a list. Tenth grade starts tomorrow.
He owned it. Went through the things he already had and put together a detailed list.
Pencils (more than you think)
Erasable pens (like 4+)
Paper (college ruled)
Spare 1" binder, maybe 2 (because then, he explained as we went over the list, he could have one for A days and one for B days)
And so on.
I'm taking this as a good sign that he's gearing up to own tenth grade in its entirety.
