adorable back to school supplies

I wandered into Joann’s this week, entirely by accident. 

As accidentally as one can wander into a store when driving her own vehicle. 

And it’s a good thing I did because their school supplies were on clearance to make room for Halloween supplies.

I’m sorry, but are you kidding me with this?

In my day notebooks were filled with New Kids on the Block and Paula Abdul.  None of this adorable school-themed stuff.

My kids were under-impressed, which means I get to keep all the notebooks for myself!

Which one should I use to write notes to my best friend in Chemistry?

    Ha, I’m the one who’s still buying the character notebooks for my kids :)

    I’m genuinely worried that kids don’t write notes to each other any more. Or fold them intricately.
