This past week was tax-free saving week a.k.a. back to school shopping week here in Florida. So I did what any respectable parent and teacher would do, go shopping for back to school clothes and supplies. But what you don't know is for teachers, it is about that same  time where we start to feel the "Oh my God, is the summer really over?
