School started, can’t you just smell the school supplies?
I love school supplies. Glue sticks, markers, #2 pencils; glossy folders with the pictures of the Beatles or Julius the Monkey; a fresh box of undented crayons with their waxy balm; and most important, Trapper Keepers (I miss those, are they still around?).
Did you ever watch You’ve Got Mail? At the beginning Joe Fox/Tom Hanks says: “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” The Fall DOES make me want to buy school supplies. When my children were just babies I would walk by the Target shelves that were specifically dedicated to a new school year and feel some major mixed emotions. I was so glad they weren’t at that stage of their life but still felt this incredible urge to buy new scissors, glue, and crayons.
I think school supplies are my only favorite part of the start of school.
So, with that said, enjoy some first day of school shots:
