Favorite Back-to-School Rituals

What Was Your Favorite Back-to-School Ritual?

I was as zealous of a back-to-schooler as kids came. I started dreaming of it in July — new clothes, new books, new people. Possibilities abound, and I never knew whom I'd sit next to. Except, I sort of did as alphabetical order was nearly always in effect.

Even the years when I wore a uniform, I loved lying the freshly pressed outfit out the night before and packing my bag with all-new supplies. And there were always new shoes! What was your favorite part of heading back to class?

I, too, loved getting new clean supplies. New clothes. The fun would wear off fairly soon, but I'd forget that at the beginning of every year!

Buying school supplies! My mum and I get carried away sometimes. And preparing my clothes for the next day, especially when I still had a uniform.

Tres I did that too! :D I loved mulling over the first day's outfit for like half an hour, then laying it out nicely. School supply shopping was so much fun too. I think I'm more excited than my little sister when it's time for HER to go shopping.. I tag along and grab cute pens and folders I don't need. haha

Going shopping! How fun was that? I also looked forward to seeing my friends, and when I got older, new cute guys.

I loved buying school supplies too. It was so much fun (then and now) to pick out a new planner, notebooks, pens, etc. (Dork alert, I know). Shopping for "back to school clothes" with my mom was even better. I miss the days when she treated me to a new wardrobe in the fall!

I love school supply shopping. I always get sooo happy in August when the school section comes out @ Target.

Buying new clothes and shoes, picking out my first week outfits, and buying new school supplies and getting them organized! I love brand new, clean supplies! I, too, am still a nerd ;)
