It's back to school time in the Ark-La-Tex. Moms, are you ready? Which category do you fall into?

I'll be honest, I've always been that kid and later the step-parent that loved back-to-school shopping. It's the excitement of a new year, the power of possibility, and new beginnings. And most importantly, new clothes and school supplies. There's just something about a new notebook or binder that hasn't been through the wringer yet. Plus, I have a thing for school supplies!

A few things before we get to the '5 Types of Moms You'll See During Back to School in Shreveport.' Here are the official back-to-school dates for our area.
