I can’t believe the summer is over already! I had so many things I was going to do, so many new things to learn, fun places to go, new plants to try in the garden.
Some of those things happened, but my ‘To Do’ list always seems to be based on desire and enthusiasm rather than any kind on realistic possibilities.
It’s not just me is it? Please tell me you also get to the end of your summer with a list you’ve hardly put a dent in, wondering how in the world 8 weeks could go by so fast . . .
It’s gotten even odder for me in the last few years, now that I no longer have kids in school and I’m not driving the school bus. (I used to be able to calculate exactly how many days I had before school started based on how vivid my ‘First day back to bus driving’ dreams were. Got to school a little late . . . still had a good four weeks of holidays left. It took me a day and a half to get from where my bus was parked to dropping the kids of at the school’s front door . . . Only one sleep left . . .)
So, to celebrate all those kids getting back to school tomorrow with their crisp new notebooks, binders and newly sharpened pencil crayons, Kim and I had fun last week with a few ‘Back to School’ week projects. I’ve started things off by making some cute little cards you can put in your kid’s lunches these first few weeks. I even left a few without words so you can add your own ‘love note’.
I’m attaching them in two images. One with lines and one without. The one with lines you could use to just print them out on regular paper and cut out yourself. The other without lines can be printed on ‘print your own’ business cards (I used the Avery Template) if you want to fancy things up a bit.
And, because there is something so fun about the first day back to school, I’ve printed up two sets on business cards to giveaway tonight on Facebook. All you have to do is leave a comment and I’ll be drawing at 10 tonight for the winners . . . (Facebook post is here: Back to School note card giveaway.)
Happy Back to School!
