Back to School!

I love fall… and school supplies! My favorite part of fall was “back to school” shopping. New clothes, shoes, haircut, and school supplies! When I was in elementary school in the early 80’s, we had to cover our text books. It was a creative process using brown paper bags that mom saved after grocery shopping.… Continue reading Back to School!
