The first full day of school is upon this family. My oldest child, Josephine, is going into first grade. Bring on the tears. We've gotten the first day of school outfit. We've gotten the pencils and glue sticks. We've gotten the spruce-up-for-school haircut. Now it's time for Operation: Last Hurray Before First Grade!
For most families, Labor Day means hitting the sticks. Been there done that . . . all summer! So our last big bye bye to summer took us to the city - 1 hour north to Portland, OR. With the back-to-school budget already in Target's cash register, our Portland Day had to ring in low . . . real low.
