I was able to relive that feeling when my own kids were young and we participated in that late summer ritual of shopping for all the stuff on their school lists. Way more than I ever needed for school, but all useful and necessary. Even after we began homeschooling we still went out to shop for supplies at the back-to-school sales. Now they are in college and don't need my help to shop, plus, it's all about laptops now, not paper and pencils! (I so wish I had had a laptop for all the notes I took in my college classes!)

We can't go back, of course. Just treasure the memories and look to the future. I still love to learn, still get excited about new books and programs and classes. I still love the fresh-start feeling I get at New Year's, and at Back-to-School time.
