Saturday Snapshot - Back to School Already??

I was shocked to see that the stores are already pulling out the school supplies for the coming school year! Seems so early, but I know you have to plan pretty early, or at least I did, when you have kids!

One of my absolute favorite things in the world is a fresh box of crayons, and yesterday I indulged myself in a new box!  Just the smell of the colorful crayons takes me back to my school days, and the sight of the perfectly sharpened, ready to color with, glorious sticks of wax makes me positively giddy!  Silly, I know!!



My kids are all grown now, but I still pick up a few boxes to help with school supply donation drives!

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link at Alyce's blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you.

I love the smell of crayons! Did you get a coloring book as well? Such nostalgia. I used to color with my daughter and I think I liked it more than she did. LOL

How fun! New crayons are something that, thankfully, have never changed or been 'improved upon'. They're perfect just the way they are.

I love that you bought crayons and that's a great photo of them. Coloring is very relaxing.

I love it when the crayons are all in rainbow order! My six year old got a huge circular crayon container as a gift last year and they were all randomly arranged. My son humored me and let me take them all out and rearrange them so that they were in order chromatically.

Crayons are such a nice memory of childhood!

I love pretty much anything that is arranged in rainbow order. It always looks so amazing.
