Back to School

We've been doing a lot of back-to-school things lately. And that's because school starts today. TODAY. I know, I can barely believe it either.

Two nights ago, as we stood in the office supply section of the local Meijer store, Zoe and Talia informed me that even though they'd said that they didn't want to decorate the insides of their lockers, both of them had changed their minds.
Zoe: Can we buy some locker decorations while we're here?
Me: Well, okay. You can choose one each.
Talia: All right then. They're over here.
We walked over to the locker accessory section. Thankfully, they looked past the chandelier (so sixth grade) and the wallpaper and focused on the magnets.
Zoe: Hmm. We could get magnets and hang something up.
Talia: Yeah, that would be okay.
Zoe: But what should we hang up?
Me: Well what about some Hetalia pictures?
At this point, you might be asking yourself what in the heck I was talking about. (Obviously, if you click on the link, you can find out. And, here's a picture of the characters.)
But believe me, when I say that the girls are obsessed with the folks from Hetalia. They trace their pictures, draw them freehand, and watch the YouTube videos of them. It's all so much, I'm not sure why one of them didn't think of using Hetalia characters before I did. Anyway, back to the story...
Zoe and Talia: That's a great idea.
Me: I know. Sometimes I have good ideas.
Zoe: That's because you're a good mom.
And that's it. There's not really a point to this post other than I think I have some pretty great kids, and that I'll miss these little rugrats and their endearing quips. On the other hand, the house will be far less messy since they'll be away all day.
