  1. I am a grandma now but the beginning of the school year was always a new chance for me to improve myself from the year before and I loved new supplies and school clothes. Oh, and new shoes!


  2. My kids are homeschooled now but I still get excited when they put up the back to school section at Walmart. And there is nothing like that brand new Back to School pair of shoes :)

  3. Back to school brings a mix of emotions....sadness this year that my last cookie in the jar, is off to a full day of kindergarten without me by his side. Then I also feel a bit of freedom and that makes me a bit happy. I am not tied down during the day to the commands of a 4 yr old. For my older son, I love seeing how he is developing into a man. I am thankful that my last two in school are boys. They are not as needy as the girls were, nor do they bring home the drama like the girls. As this school year begins, I enjoy seeing the excitement in the faces of both my sons - anticipation, nervousness. I love when my son has learned something so amazing he is bursting to tell me.
    So, school brings about some sadness and some happiness. The two feelings live in perfect harmony within me.

  4. I used to be excited about the new school supplies, and when I was teaching, getting the classroom ready again was exciting. Then the thought of all the work starting up again hits, and it's not quite as exciting as it seemed.

  5. love shopping for back to school supplies :) such a nerd, i know.
