Stop and Smell the School Supplies!!

Always have been, always will be!
You can ask my brothers and sisters who were tortured into playing school
with me when I was just a little girl.

One of the things I miss most about teaching children is getting
to "smell" the school supplies.
You read that right--smell them.
There is just something that says "School is starting soon" when
you walk down the aisles of Target and smell the school supplies.

So today I indulged myself.
I walked the Target aisles and took a big whiff.
And then, I found these 3 delightful binders and bought them.
What am I going to do with them you ask?
Why recipe files of course!
Guess that means I have to COOK!
Oh, well, it will be worth it to have cute school supplies in my kitchen year round to
look at--or to smell!!

Happy Start of the 2010-2011 School Year!

Speaking of recipes, if you have your mac and cheese recipe saved electronically will you send it to me. My friend Holly would like it. Thanks! Kelly

I am not a teacher, but love to go into the stores when school is starting back. I am not sure about the new school supply smell...but I love the whole back to college smell. It is so sad that part of my life has passed. I guess Janet better hurry and go off to college so I can go shopping with her.

I agree! And what a great idea for your new binders!! I think I should do some school shopping myself...

I need to get Bethany some cute binders. Maybe then she'll have a reason to cook as well! :) jk

I totally agree!! I got to take Joshua to get his fourth-grade school supplies last week, and I know I loved it more than he did. I was almost giddy...okay, I WAS giddy!
