Back to School with the Hodgepodge

It's always fun to connect with Joyce for the Wednesday Hodgepodge!

1. What's something you wanted to do this summer that you never got around to actually doing?

We didn't get to take a family trip, even for a weekend. With my girl gone working at a camp most of the summer as well as my work schedule, there just wasn't enough time.

2. Share a favorite memory of your own back -to-school days as a child.

Brand-new school supplies. And my dad printing my name on everything. He was a mechanical engineer and had great block printing, so he was always the one who labeled everything. Sweet memories

3. What's one chore or daily task you prefer doing 'old-school' ?

Cooking. I still do it from scratch for the most-part.

4. Share something you've learned in life through the 'school of hard knocks'.

God's way is always best. Even when I don't "get my way," I know I'll be glad when I look back.

5. As a child, did you mostly bring or buy your lunch for school? What was your favorite thing to find in your lunchbox?

Brought my lunch every single day, except we got to buy our lunch for our birthday. Once I was older and no longer had to take a thermos of milk, my favorite lunch was a tuna sandwich, Cheetos (the regular kind, NOT the puffs), chocolate chip cookies, and a Dr. Pepper. Best lunch ever!

6. Football season is upon us which has me wondering... how big of a sports fan are you (not just football) ? On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being 'I scream at the players through my television screen' and 1 being 'is knitting a sport?' where do you fall in fandom?

About a 1.5. I can get mildly interested in it at times, but my husband doesn't watch it, so it's pretty much a non-event in our house.

7. Share a favorite quote you think might inspire students of all ages at the start of a new school year.

This classic from my first day of my high school junior English class, which our teacher assigned us to write a paper on: Students are lamps to be lighted, not vessels to be filled.

It is challenging to get family vacations on the calendar with kids working. Sorry it didn't work out for you this summer. I love your school lunch. That feast would probably get you scolded now : )
