You Know It's Back To School

How You Know It's Back to School linky party

Jeannie from Kindergarten Lifestyle is hosting a fun linky party about how we can tell it is back to school time!  

Many of us are already back to school and many are preparing for this.  At my school, students began on Thursday.  I love the look of shiny floors and sweet little faces searching for their new classrooms!

New Crayola Crayon smell and rainbow of colors

There is nothing like a new box of Crayola Crayons at the beginning of the year!  I remember getting them as a kid and loving those crayons all lined up and sharpened so neatly.  I am a bit of a neat freak, so I loved the uniformness (is that a word??) of all the crayons being in perfect lines and the tops all sharpened the same and matching in length.  Each year the colors were just so beautiful.  Almost made me want to keep them that way and not use them!

having to wear shoes going back to school

First thing I do when I come home is kick off my shoes.  I like to be barefoot in the house.  So I go a lot of the summer time with out shoes, just slipping some on as I go out the door.  Come school time I have to get used to having my shoes on all day long again!  

We would love to know how you know it's back to school too!  Here is how: grab the graphic at the top of my post. Save it and open in Word or PowerPoint. Then insert a text box and write how you would finish it.... then save as a jpeg!...... Do you own brief post on your blog.  You can link up on Jeannie's blog by clicking here or on her blog button below.


  1. I sooo agree with the shoe thing! Luckily, we can wear flip flops as long as they aren't the cheapy plastic kind.

  2. There's nothing quite like a new box of Crayola crayons.

  3. I'm dreading having my feet get used to real shoes again! My poor flip-flops are completely worn out-I think I wore them every day of the summer!:)


  4. I so get the shoe thing. My feet don't like school for the first few weeks!

  5. So true about the shoes! Love it!!

  6. Ugh! I need some new comfy shoes for a new school year. I would prefer to be barefoot too...on a beach...breeze blowing through my hair...

    Sorry! Anyway, love your blog! Happy new school year!


  7. Nothing like the crayon smell is there, Michelle? :)

  8. Some schools allow the flip flops and some do not. Glad you can wear them at your school, Erin!

  9. I love a new box of crayons, Mary! Beautiful colors!

  10. That's funny Miss Trayers! I think a lot of people are going to be missing their flip flops!

  11. Tammy, my feet and legs don't appreciate the hard tiled floors the first few days!

  12. Thanks Ms. Pretzel! I love cute shoes, but I also like no shoes in the summer!

  13. I love your way of thinking, Julie!! Happy new school year to you too!

  14. I hate wearing shoes too!! Totally relate to that one!
