Bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils

I’m finishing up our school supply shopping today.  This year is the first time we have to buy supplies for THREE kids (about 65 different items!).  I really love the smell of the sharpened pencils, the smooth pink erasers – it all takes me back to being a kid and the feeling of a fresh start.

My favorite elementary school teacher was Ms. Boe – I had her for 1st and 2nd grade and she was wonderful:)  I still remember studying her hair, make-up and clothing, and thinking she was the most beautiful girl ever.  Every once in a while, I get a whiff of her perfume and suddenly it’s 1989 and I’m 7 years old again.  Don’t you love when that happens?

Who was your favorite teacher in school?
