I was checking my Facebook page today, and it’s obvious that school is in session! Every one of my friends that has a school-age child(ren) has taken a picture and posted their “first day” back on campus.
This is my first year in 21 years that I haven’t taken a picture; it’s because this is the first year that all of my kids are in college! Holy bananas.
At Mission Repair we are feeling the effect too. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week our lobbies were full of parents “hurrying” to get devices repaired; I think that in a 3-day run that was a busy as I’ve ever see it. Yesterday was back to normal because most kids started back yesterday. It was a nice break!
We are going to continue our back-to-school special and now through Sunday 8/16/15, we are have a 10% off coupon that good on your next repair with us. Just enter “campus” when checking out online, or print a copy of this blog and bring it to your local Mission Repair for the discount. This coupon cannot be combined with any other discounts including “Got Repair” benefits. Hurry on in, we are Open today until 7pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm!
After my lunch with Brae, it’s Thursday afternoon and it seems like the entire country is going back to school right now; my son Casey was just in my office this morning (he had an interview at the Olathe Police department, kind of cool!) and we were discussing his LAST YEAR of school. He is going to be a Senior this year, and then like some sort of magic – he will be done with school and off to bigger and better things. We aren’t quite sure what that means for him yet…a career in law enforcement? Become a chef? Who knows for sure…but college is in his future and right around the corner.
What I realized is that I just registered my youngest child for his senior year in high school. This is it, no more school registrations for me! I can just remember when I was saying “I can’t wait until I get both of my kids into Kindergarten. That will be great”. Well, not only is my daughter already in her 3rd year of college (holy moly) but my son is finishing High School this year. Simply amazing.
I can tell that the entire country is in “Back to School” mode and it pretty much effects everyone, even those without children. I’ve seen a ton of Facebook posts today and many kids are starting back up already! Casey goes back next Thursday to begin the first day of his last year of school, and I know he’s 50% excited and 50% dreading that summer is already over.
We’re in the Back to School Spirit here at Mission Repair too. In fact, Melanie and I are working on a Newsletter that will release this afternoon with an awesome back to school special. We know you’re busy, and we can seen by our huge increase in orders that families are scrambling to get devices fixed before the school year (in fact, the school IT departments are back from vacation and sending in Purchase Orders like crazy!) and we want to help if we can. Our Newsletter special will help offset some of the costs that families might be incurring with all of the back to school madness. Want to be a part of the Newsletter blast? Just sign up here and you’ll get a copy later today!
Thanks again for reading everyone, and I’ll be back this afternoon in your email inbox with the Mission Repair “Back To School” special!
