Is it that time already?

Yes it is back to school time.

I love the line in "You've Got Mail" where Tom Hanks says to Meg Ryan, "If I knew your address I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils."

I love back to school shopping, although I thoroughly not ready for summer to be over.

Today B got his house assignment for his first year of middle school.  Yikes, I am definitely not ready for this.  In with his house assignment came the usual registration paperwork etc.  Then there was my favorite piece of information.

The Student Dress Could


  • Pants should fit at the waistline so as not to reveal under garments
  • Pant legs should not drag on the floor.
  • tops should be long enough to easily cover the mid-riff.
  • Spaghetti strap tops and many tank tops do not cover the chest and back adequately for school-wear.
  • Bra straps should not be visible.
  • Shorts and skirts should be long enough that when you drop your hands to the thigh, they should not touch skin.
  • No hats, caps, or bandannas.
Can I get an AMEN and a HALLELUJAH.  Finally someone who speaks my language!!!

The did say at orientation they will call parents and make them come get the kids from school.

I love it.  I hate being a prude, but I do not want to see your cleavage.

AMEN to this! Hope they actually DO enforce it. I recall some outfits making the male teachers at my old high school VERY uncomfortable. About time!
