I would love to be able to pick up our notebooks and any other basic supplies needed to start us off right. Thank you.

I think the school supply lists each year are virtually identical, so look back to CTG for that. It's just the basic stuff, with colored pencils for mapping, the writing paper you prefer, plus a couple of notebook binders. If you like page protectors and cardstock for the notebooks (and for some of the games in the appendix, etc.), you may want to stock up. Astronomy is going to add to your notebooking this year.
For building the body models in science, I also used cardstock. It held up nicely. And if you plan to have your children do the cutting, then have a sharp pair of scissors for each (I cut them for ds, but I only had one child :o)
Oh, and a package of those brass fasteners came in handy for those moveable models.
Oh, again I am thinking of cardstock (or construction paper) in several colors for the "big project" in Astronomy -- making the solar system. There are other options using balloons & such in the Astronomy book, but the RTR manual gives an easy alternative using construction paper.
If I think of anything else, I'll add to this post... Have fun!
