Around here, school still starts the day after Labor Day, even though in many parts of the country school has already been in session for weeks. To mark the end of summer and the start of the school year, I’ve put together some of my ‘Back to School Picks’. There are some goodies for both big and little kids and just the young at heart.
I am sorry to see the summer end…summer is my favorite season. Each year on Labor Day, I mark the end of summer by playing The Last Good Day of the Year by Cousteau. Its bittersweet melancholy reminds me of the sadness I felt each year as a kid at the end of summer. I’m playing it now as I type this post.
Anyway, enjoy these picks. This is the stuff I would make sure to take with me if I were heading back to school.
These are just so much fun and at $6.50, you can afford to get one in each color.
