Flashback Friday Prompt

Once the Fourth of July passes, it seems as though summer picks up momentum and absolutely races by. My kids don't start until August 24, giving us just under two weeks left of summer leisure. But I've been seeing evidence on blogs around the country that some districts have already gone back to school.
Did your family have any back-to-school traditions when you were growing up? Were you generally eager or reluctant to start school? Was buying school supplies a big deal or did you order them through the school? Were there any school supplies you particularly loved? Did you take your lunch or buy it at school? Brown bag or lunch box/thermos? Does the first day of school from any grade stand out? Did you ride the bus, walk, or go by car to school? Do you remember how early or late school began/dismissed each day? Did you go to kindergarten? Half-day or whole day?

Post your back-to-school memories on your blog and come back tomorrow to link up here!

I always liked the back to school shopping for supplies because I have a love affair with things like paper, pens and crayons! lol Sadly, dear son is the last one at home and he's a sophomore so the shopping is different. No crayons or cute folders.
