Remember when you were a kid and you were excited but also full of dread for the upcoming school year? Do you remember being excited for the new opportunties, new clothes, new teachers, but dreading the blaring sound of the alarm clock? Well, being a teacher, I go through that excitement and dread every year. And, since tonight is the eve of the first day of school, I thought I would try to put away the dread and focus on something fun, like a contest!!
In order to participate in the contest, all you have to do is comment on this blog and share your favorite back to school memory. What did you love the most about going back to school? Was it your new haircut or new shoes? Did you love getting a new lunch box or seeing your friends after the long summer? Do you have a funny or special story to share? Whatever it is, share it!
For me, my favorite thing was always the excitement of new school supplies! I loved coordinating my folders and notebooks and opening up that new box of crayons - it was always such a beautiful sight! As an Art teacher I still get to relish in this delight. Unpacking those new supplies gets me all geeked up!
So, share your memory here and you will be entered in the contest. It's as easy as that! The contest will run through this Friday, so enter away!
Oh wait, what's the prize?! I almost forgot!! The winner will receive 50 free 4"x6" glossy photo Christmas cards! Yes, I said 50!!!!!! Want to double your chances of winning? Follow my blog and you will be entered twice!!
