WOW! Is it me, or did this summer ‘fly by”? Well, if it is August then that means just one thing to an educator/ parent/ retail store owner – BACK TO SCHOOL!
Ahhh… the smell of new pencils, paper and notebooks! Oh wait- that was my memory from 30 years ago.. now in the year 2013 we have recollections of the smell of a freshly unboxed iPad and earbuds!
Do we still have backpacks? I hope so as I have amassed a list of what a student should put in their backpack that is NOT a school supply!
In closing- there have been a few great commercials to remind us how our culture embraces BACK TO SCHOOL! My favorite is the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR commercial by STAPLES. Here is a list of some more favorites from KidsWorld.
