Oh... That brings back such good memories for me...! It used to be my favorite time of year - when summer had gone for too long and the school year was starting again.
I would get money from my mom and go to a little shop in our neighborhood, filled with the smell of pencils and notebooks and thick erasers... The closest to that smell for me here has been to visit an art supply store. But it's not quite the same... I wonder if I'll be able to recapture some of that, like you describe, once my little one starts elementary school... Thanks for posting!

We have so got to do that. I love and hate it all in one. With three going back to school it is insanely expensive but I love the flood of my own back to school shopping memories. xoxo

i have very fond and frustrating memories of getting school supplies. we had to duracel the notebooks which was clear sticky wrap to make the books more durable and i always always get big bubbles in them!

Oh I need to do this, and I'm procrastinating. I DON'T enjoy it at all!

I would find it very difficult not to buy something for myself, if I were you :)

blue moss said...

well...we made it
with one in high school, one in jr high and one in elementary...it was more confusing than ever. loved it...but now i AM glad that it's over...

is this a girl thing?
i too love supplies...fresh paper, milky white glue...that not only helps me create lovely things but peels gently off my hands..giving my hands something to do and my mind time to wander. :)
the hubs just doesn't get it. hence the question.

blue moss said...

besh....that totally makes me laugh. my husband was having fun reading the comments earlier today just to see if there was anyone else who felt the same way i do...the idea of supply shopping is completely foreign to him!!
