It’s been many years since August signaled back to school for me, but seeing the ads on TV and walking down the back to school aisles that take over a portion of stores this time of year, it’s easy for me to remember those days.
How important it was to make sure you had everything on the list of supplies–especially if there was an item that was suddenly the ‘thing’ everyone had to have. (Anyone else remember Trapper Keepers?) Then there was meeting the new teacher, checking out the new classroom, hoping your schedule matched with your friends’. Most of the time, the new year coincided with a new haircut and the all-important call to my best friend to discuss what to wear on that first day back…
So, what memories do you have of a new school year? It could be your own memories or perhaps memories of seeing your kids off on their first day, too.
