Yesterday was the first day of school for all the kids in the neighborhood. I was always the kid that never got bored during summer and cried the night before the first day back. I have to say, I felt a twinge of nostalgia watching all the kids walk to school and knowing I will never be able to do that again.
The one thing I always looked forward to about back to school was shopping for new school supplies. I loved how smoothly new pens wrote and the smell of new textbooks. I loved freshly sharpened pencils and notebooks that were never opened. I remember spending hours at The Container Store, walking up and down the isles, clutching my school supply list, mesmerized by how pretty and new everything was. I happily spent more money on school supplies than back to school clothes. What are some of your favorite school supplies?
