Salvation Army Providing Backpacks

Today was Back To School day for my daughter and, all-in-all, things went pretty well; however, there was a little bit of stress that could have been avoided if I would have planned a little better.  I thought I'd share these thoughts since I know I'm not the only parent that had these same issues today (or will have them on Thursday for District 2)...
School Bells Pinch Wallets
If the sight of all those school supplies filling the aisles of Billings retail stores has you in a panic, it's understandable.

Firefighting Students Offered Delayed Admission by Montana University System
