I’ve packed up the flags and fish and flower door hangers that were remnants of summer and pulled out the school things!
We were gone so much in July that our house needs some tending to. You can see here that a wind storm blew a vacant bird nest off its perch (upper right). The crepe myrtle, lovely as it is, has created a huge mess on my front walk.
Neither of mine have ridden the bus for a couple of years now, but I will use this for many Augusts to come. I miss those mornings where the neighborhood kids would all play basketball in my driveway while waiting on the bus. Elsa would run wild. Middle school came for John, and then Whit, and I was working full time at home and took advantage of my schedule to use carpool as time for us to connect one on one.
Over at the garage door I have a cute apple. (Note another to-do – reconnect the drain pipe. Anyone else ever feel overwhelmed by all the house things?) Both the bus and the apple are from Bronwyn Hanahan on etsy. I’ve had most of my Bronwyn Hanahan door hangers for a number of years and all have held up wonderfully.
Strangely enough, we only had a couple of folders to buy for school supplies this year. I guess that’s all part of growing up! Middle school is not allowing lockers again this year so we are trying a new method for organizing Whit’s classwork – one that is hopefully not so heavy in the backpack. How is your back to school looking?
