It’s August, and Little Jedi starts school very soon. For the first time since I can remember, I’m not starting school in August. There are no classes for me to prepare to teach and none for me to take. In virtually every way that’s a relief for me—but gosh, do I miss school supplies!
Even as a kid, I loved getting new school supplies. Here are some of my favorites from years’ past:
From top left:
Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper. (Lisa Frank EVERYTHING.)
Dinosaur pencil toppers. (I had a thing for dinosaurs.)
Keroppi Pencil Case.
Corduroy Bacpack. (I still have that, actually, and I still love it.)
Rainbow Brite lunchbox and thermos. (Rainbow Brite EVERYTHING, too.)
Jem Pop-a-Point pencils.
Scented eraser pens.
Gel Pens from Gellyroll.
Scratch N Sniff Stickers.
Goosebumps folders. (And the books. All of the books, really. I was a bookworm then, too.)
Liquid paper. (Still like it. No idea why—it’s just a small pleasure.)
Mr. Sketch scented markers.
Yikes pencils. (Gosh, I miss those.)
