Back to School

My daughter started Kindergarten this fall at the local public school. I began to research their policy in the early summer as she grew into the clothing size that I thought would carry her into the school year. I then began searching for stores that carried "uniforms". And then I began reading reviews to learn about the quality of the brands. Even though I'm not even a full school year into this process, I've hope to share what I've learned so far. I also hope you'll share advice, tips and lessons learned with me.

As a busy working Mom, I won't focus on the merits of a uniform policy, but the practical issues such as shopping and laundry. I didn't find much advice as I prepared for my first year of "back to school" shopping, so I hope this blog can serve as a community for parents of kids that wear school uniform to share information about brands and products, sales and promotions, as well as advice to help us manage the uniform wardrobe for our school aged kids.
