Question: It’s back to school time (hard to believe huh)? Where did the summer go? What did you like most about going back to school when you were a kid?
My Answer: I always loved shopping for school supplies. There was something fun about getting all “new things” like new crayons, new pencils, a new notebook, new school clothes, etc. Back when I was in elementary school, we used to cover our old notebooks in sticky contact paper. It was always fun to go to the local five and dime store to pick out your new contact paper! That’s a memory I’ll never forget. I can’t imagine kids of today doing that but it was a big fad back in the 60s. I also LOVED to get colored notebook paper which was popular in the 60s and 70s. Not a lot of teachers liked it or allowed it though.
