I am in love with school supplies this year. It's always exciting, picking out new crayons, colored pencils, notebooks. But now, we're in a whole new ballgame. Every store that we've been to for school supplies has these new hip, gorgeous patterns to chose from. Impossible to resist. A few of these items or mine!
We were thrilled to find "Chloe" notebooks as well. We refer to everything Cavalier as "Chloes". So many fun choices. I have a few returns to make as each new store seems to have something cuter than the last. My son is so easy to shop for. (But not as much fun). I'm so blessed to have one of each. I remember being thrilled with a new bottle of paste, a new box of Crayola crayons with a sharpener in the back and a big chief notebook. Office Max brought back the big chief's last year. I tried to find a few, but they were gone in a flash.

We noticedt the funky school supplies this year. Loopy is badgering me to get out there and get shopping - I'm trying to hold her off.

We call weimaraners "Dukes" and bichons "Wrigleys"...

Having boys never gave me the chance to shop for all those pretty back-to-school supplies. I've longed for them from afar!

I wish i could buy some for myself, but I don't relaly have a good excuse! The smell of plastic binders always brings me back to the 80's....

Oh I wih I could be so excited about school supplies. I don't want to send my kids back to school this year. It's been so nice having them around! Fun colors on those supplies I have to admit.

I love new school supplies too, and office supply stores...all that sort of thing. They sure are making wonderful things now. It is much different for the boys isn't it? I remember my son mostly would choose black or blue notebooks!

There's nothing like new pencils and new crayons to make a person feel wealthy in new beginnings!

Take care, Cindy.
