Back to School: Backpacks & Supplies

TRUTH: The countdown to the beginning of school is around the corner.

What, how is that possible?!

I can “see” many of you rolling your eyes and “hear” your deep sighs with the realization that as July comes to an end, you need to think about the end of summer and the start of school in August.
