People laugh at me because I love office supplies. Going into Staples makes me happy. I like to browse through the new styles of post-it notes, paper clips, and reams of paper. Brand new pens, pencils, and most of all fresh boxes of crayons and markers put a huge smile on my face. I know I’m weird, and I fully admit it. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a former teacher, but the first day of school has always been a big day for me. My children must get ready early enough to take that first day of school photo in the front yard, or two or 12. Here are our pictures from this morning. Oh I hope they are having a great day with their new teachers making new friends, and catching up with the ones from past years. I’m excited to go pick them up in only 3 hours.
The whole family walks to the first day of school, including Daddy. Next year that little girl in the red dress will have her own backpack to carry to Kindergarten, and there will be a 1 year old in a stroller with us.
