School began this week for the kids around here. Hardly seems fair, I don’t think school should start until September. The first of August is still summer. I’m sure I could get several of those precious young things to agree with me and, truth be told, some of their teachers.
Back to school means stores stocked full with new and wonderful school supplies. I love walking down the aisles and checking out the new paper, pen, and folder options. The start of a new year is filled with hopeful possibility and the anticipation of learning something new. There is something nostalgic and rather romantic about a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils on a teacher’s desk. Just reading the words freshly sharpened pencils, can’t you smell them?
Next week, I can’t wait to share with you a project I’ve been working on for quite some time. I will also be revealing the After on my second project! — see the Before shot here .
