It has been a long time since I've had to deal with back to school supplies or clothes shopping. Don't tell my sons, but I sort of miss it.
To be completely honest about this back to school business, I don't miss filling out forms, writing checks for six different clubs/activities/security deposits all due by Friday, and most of all I don't miss packing lunches or encouraging older kids to spend their lunch money on lunch...you know, something an adult would consider lunch, not candy and soft drinks as were readily available when my kids were in middle school and high school.
But the crayons! Oh, be still my Radical Red heart! To go shopping on an August afternoon with a Lemon Yellow sun in Cornflower Blue sky and spend a few Fern Green dollars on boxes of waxy happiness!
* Sigh *
Kind of makes you wonder how many crayons I sniffed in my formative years, doesn't it? Just think if I had an affinity for school paste! Which reminds me, did all of you grow up with little jars of paste in your desk while in elementary school?
See you at recess!
