Summer vacation days are dwindling down for students in Prince William County with only 32 days until school starts. Many friends have traveled this summer with evidence on Facebook and other social media of happy families on beaches and mountains near to home and far away. 

Our family has spent one month in Paphos, Cyprus and we have enjoyed every moment of it. We were supposed to arrive back on July 31st but due to weather related delays we got to stay another 3 days. My wife was going to do all her school shopping this weekend since this upcoming three-day period from August 1st - 3rd, purchases of qualifying school supplies selling for $20 or less per item, and purchases of qualifying clothing and footwear selling for $100 or less per item will be exempt from sales tax. This saves quite a bit of money especially when combined with other Back to School offers and you have multiple children you need to stock up for. We missed it this year but it happens every year in August so watch out for it!

We hope everyone has enjoyed the much needed family time and is ready with the school supplies, prepared to help with homework and projects and ready to cheer on the kids who are in sports...and ready for the most beautiful colors of Fall!
