BACK TO SCHOOL...

Back to bed or run around town...
because the kids are off to school!

Remember the smells of school?
Crayons & paste.



More time in blogland...
MOSAIC MONDAY at the Little Red House
Mellow Yellow at the Drowsy Monkey and
Blue Monday
with Smiling Sally.

Off we go into the wild blue yonder...

I taught high school, so the smells that I recall are neither crayons nor paste! LOL Thanks for sharing your blues. Happy Blue Monday.

I like the bus with the Monster Wheels. I think little boys would not want to ride that bus all day long:)

Love your post. You always come up with the best things. My grandkids are starting back to school today too. My neighborhood is very quite this morning. No kids in the streets riding bikes or skateboards.
Have a great day!

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a kind comment.

Very interesting about your neighbor having the homegrown and the adopted children....My son and dil's neighbor have 3 homegrown, and six from Ethiopia. There really never is a dull moment. My son is a filmmaker working on a documentary of their journey. I'll put a link to that in a post soon.

Hi Candy,
What a cool yellow bus mosaic. Awesome buses! We don't start school until Sept. 8th, but is quickly approaching. Where has the summer gone? Have a wonderful Monday.

I'm one of those teachers greeting your kiddos:) Hope you are enjoying this day with their return to school. I would like to invite you to join with me at diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com for Crock Pot Wednesday. It's informal and fun. I think you would enjoy it. Mister Linky is up and waiting for your link.

Oh yes. I do remember the smell of the crayons and paste. I also remember the feeling of that fat pencil and the texture of the newsprint type paper your hand rested on...and that was a loooong time ago!

Jenn@ You know... that Blog? said...

Wonderful! My husband liked the monster bus and the 18 wheeler too ;) Very unique and creative - love it!
