By the end of the summer, I was ready to start back to school, ready to walk to school with my friends on cool September days, not a care in the world.
Back to school meant new school supplies: a big chief tablet, jumbo pencils and crayons, blunt tipped scissors, and school paste in a jar.
These, of course, were carried to school in a cigar box, our school supply box!
My momma always made me a new dress each year. Little girls (nor big girls either) never wore anything but dresses to school. Such beautiful clothes I had all made by momma.
The outfit was usually topped off by a new pair of Keds!
I remember "reading circle" where we all sat around the teacher and read about "Jack and Janet" and "Tip and Mitten". Many memories come flooding back today as a new school year is beginning for many children, my grandchildren included. I pray for them many happy memories such as the ones I had during my childhood. Wishing you all a blessed September week!
