Cars--the Movie and the Joy of Glue


That's the long and short of it.

It's the feel good movie of the year! Julian and I went tonight to see it and had a blast! It even has a fiesty fire truck named "Red", which of course, made J's night!

Afterwards, we went to Wal-Mart, which is my least favorite place on the planet, save one redeeming sight--the school supply section. I can't resist that aisle...I have loved the school supply section since I was a child. There's something so hopeful and so freshly organized about all new notebooks and freshly sharpened pencils and clean backpacks and pens all lined up in a row. And glue. Elmers. That stuff is pure unadulterated sustinance to the creative heart, I tell you.

One of my personal joys of home schooling is the sheer fun of being the one to make that all important document--the LIST of *necessary supplies* for the next year of school.

And then I get to go and buy the fun stuff!

Tonight I took a deep breath and played with all the goodies. Tomorrow I will begin the planning, and when the planning is done, I will make the LIST!

I can't wait!

Happy Sunday!

I'm right with you on the joy of buying school supplies - my favorite memory of elementary school days comes with the whiff of a freshly opened box of Crayola crayons - the BIG box with the sharpener in the back, not the little 8-pack box. I still get a rush when I'm in the aisle with the crayons.

Dude - we both blogged about Walmart's school supplies this week. How dorky are we? LOL! I love school supplies!
