The First Day

By Tiffany Detweiler - Monday, August 31, 2009

For many families today is the first day of a new school year or even their very FIRST day of school ever! The first day of the new school year always signifies the change in seasons for me…and although it will still be in the high 90’s and trees will still be green for weeks on end it now feels like fall!
I’m reminded of the movie “You’ve Got Mail”, one of my favorite quotes is from the beginning of the movie, “Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms.”
A bouquet of sharpened pencils, LOVE IT!
My kids are still to young for school, thankfully for me, I’m just not ready to let my babies go to school yet! But while I was at Target on Friday walking down the school supply isle my son spotted a Batman notebook and his eyes light up and he said in his overly excited voice, “Momma, Momma, Momma…Batman! PPEEAASS, Momma!?” which I responded, “Ooo…that’s cool, Okay, you can get it!” I know, I’m a push over, especially when he try’s to say “Please” but it comes out sounding like “peas”!
He has been caring it with him all over the place and lucky for me it only cost 50 cents!
In honor of the new school year we are giving away a $25 giftcard to Target! Its real simple to enter, just leave us a comment letting us know what your plans are for Labor Day Weekend! I personally will be consuming large quantities of BBQ at this year’s 21st annual Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-off!
The only Rules, one entry per person and all entries must be made by 12pm PST tonight!
