Mmmm...crayons.

Back to school time always makes me feel a little nostalgic. I miss going out and getting a fresh set of school supplies and a whole new wardrobe. I also miss getting ready to go off to college, having a new place to live and a fresh beginning each school year. I really miss buying books. I know they were freaking expensive and then I barely referenced them throughout the semester, but I always really looked forward to that experience. Now, when I'm out and about I see other people preparing for school and it makes me a little sad. Maybe next year, when I'm sending someone else off to his first day of school, I will feel entirely different about the whole affair. But for now I will revel in the nostalgia of it all.

I used to love back to school shopping, too.

I would get matching notebooks and folders (a different color for each class).

And, ohhhhhh the new pens, crayons, markers, pencils.....nice
(hmmm....maybe i should volunteer to help a certain clerk in our office do his job---i shall contemplate this further)

Ahhhh.....memories!
