"Brand new"!

Yep! It's that time of year! A new school year...brand new.
Stores are loaded with school supplies...pencils, notebooks, glue sticks, brightly colored it!
Love smelling pencils, notebooks, crayons, books! (no I don't go around just picking things up and smelling them). Reminds me of Captain Kangaroo when he did crafts on his show! I can still hear him cutting paper with his scissors and you could almost smell the crayons he used!
Anyone remember those days????
Had my cart loaded with school supplies for the grands and my mind whirring with educational activities I could do with them.
This is a new "season" for me as well. I will be helping with the grands schooling this year.
Have done a little in the past but will be more involved this year and I am so excited! Guess it's the "teacher" in me!
Things will change at the assisted livings for me. I will no longer go weekly to teach but I will go and visit as often as I can. This will be very different for I have been teaching at the assisted living for many, many years. I'll pop over for visits and take the grands to see them, delivering goodies that we will make for them!
Just new! Brand new! New start...a fresh start...just like God's mercies..."New every morning!"
