School Days, School Days…

We turned our calendar to September last week. It is still hot, it is still humid, the tomatoes are still in ripening mode, Navy played its first football game of the season ( we won’t speak of that) and I have no desire to wear a sweater, but fall is here. You can see a little in the tops of the trees and hear it in the loud cicada songs, so you know fall is slowly pushing summer out.

The beginning of fall also marks the start of my favorite time…Back To School! I know you might be thinking, she’s a teacher, why on earth would she celebrate the end of summer freedom. It’s something about the newness of the calendar pages, the aisles of school supplies at Target and a Princess who needs some more structure in her days (and honestly, so did I) . So she packed up the new backpack, slipped on that uniform and went off to the 4th grade…how is that possible?

It’s tradition, I pull out the antique school items this time of year. They remind me of simpler times and days long gone. Enjoy my obsession!

Ink bottles and a school slate
Apples for the teacher
I love old school bells.
A basket of school goodies.
Oh my heart…the Princess started 4th grade

  2. What cute decorations for back to school! My son would be so jealous that y’all are just now headed back to school. We go back the very first week in August every year. Thanks for sharing on Crafty Creators!

  3. I love the back to school time of year too even though my kids all finished school years ago. It’s a great time for fresh starts and new beginnings as well as getting back into much loved routines. 🙂
