I’ve always loved the month, not just because it’s my birthday month (August 11th for anyone who wants to send a gift!) but because in my memory, it means “all things new”! It’s back-to-school month which means, new pencils, new backpacks, new folders and if we’re fortunate enough, new clothes! When I left college and went out into the adult world, my love of August because a distant memory. Now that I have children who are of school age (kindergarten and first grade), August has regained it’s appeal! Next week starts the mark of the first day of school and I think I’m just as excited for them as they are to be going back to school. Stay tuned…next week I’ll have the “first day” pictures up!
