Yesterday I ordered Archer's school uniforms for kindergarten. I was a mess of emotions and not just because "my baby's all grown up." I never thought I'd be the kind of parent who sent my kid to a school where uniforms were mandatory. (Archer will be attending a uniform-enforced public elementary school in the Fall.)

I won't lie. It was the uniforms that originally attracted us to the school. And by us, I mean Hal. Hal is a huge proponent for uniforms in schools. Most likely because of an article he read one time in The Atlantic. Just kidding. Kind of. (Hal LOVES talking about all the articles he reads in The Atlantic. Hal LOOOOOOOOOVES The Atlantic. Wants to MAAAAARRRRRRRY The Atlantic.)

I for one was always skeptical but willing to keep an open mind.

And that I did.
