spt - school days, school days
as promised, two challenges this week. i firmly believe in jumping right back into the saddle!!
for next week, how about a self portrait of the *end-of-summer* you? the you who is thankful for school routines, or the you who is pining at home for the schoolbus to return? are you waiting in endless carpool lanes? or relishing the "time off" in starbucks or the craft store? are you in school yourelf? or just frustrated to be stuck behind a schoolbus during your morning commute? do you even notice the shift from *summer* back to "school*??
the next challenge is going to send you back in time. i'm giving you an extra week, and a little freedom from the "self-portrait" guidelines...
for tuesday, september 11, get out those family photo albums and really take a look at your old school portraits. what is your favorite childhood memory of going back to school? were those good times, or stressful times for the younger you? were you decked out in new clothes? did your mom give your hair a trim the night before school? did they still use chalk in the classroom then? did you have to walk uphill through the snow both ways?!?
i hope you will take the time to find those old photos! call your mom and ask her to send them along to you. ask your neighbor if you can borrow their scanner. take a few moments to get back in touch with your inner child!
