The twins' started back to school a little over a week ago. On the Monday night before school started we had a back-to-school night where we were given our classroom assignments, the list of supplies needed to be purchased, and met the teacher's who would be taking care of our little ones throughout the school year, when they weren't at home with us.
As with every other year, one of the big items that they needed was Kleenex®. They need them in bulk, because not only do they use them in the classroom, but the office, library, lunch rooms, special education rooms, nurses room, and various other assistants around the school need them too.
And boy did we need them this past week. By the truckload. But before I get into a heartbreaking story that hit our little school community hard, let me share something a little happier.
Like this tissue box cake.
Because if you are going to send supplies to school, you might as well make them fun.
And of course this isn't just any tissue box cake, the top box, made to look like an apple, is just the thing needed to keep in the classroom for collecting Box Tops.
