Back To School!

It's hard to believe, but back to school time is upon us! When I was a kid, nothing was more exciting than going back to school. Obviously, I was a dork because what kid would rather go school supply shopping than to a water park? Also, I liked to hang out with the librarian during PE, but that just solidifies my point...

Going back to school is fun. You get to see old friends and how they've changed since last May. You get to buy fresh notebooks and colored pencils and big colorful erasers. All that endless creative possibility fascinated me! I looked more forward to school starting back than I did school letting out!

Now that I am a grown up, few things have changed. I am a teacher, so that means I've never NOT been in school in some way for nearly the last 20 years. I still get excited about school supplies, and I still get butterflies when I think about the first day. I obsess over what to wear so I will look "cool." The biggest difference is that I ABSOLUTELY prefer the last day of school over the first!

We have gathered a list of inspiring items for back to school, as well as one of our own that celebrates reading, writing, and 'rithmetic. Click here to see our treasury of apple-themed back to school items.

Here's to that first day of school!
