Summers were, for the most part, relaxed. Late breakfasts. Mornings at the neighborhood pool. My viewing, their doing. Weekly movies for children at Charlestowne Landing followed by a picnic were a part of their elementary years in Charleston. There were trips to our neighbor's beach house on Sullivan's Island where they could dip their toes in the Atlantic and build sand castles. I didn't want summer to end.
I was at Target earlier. Surrounded by mothers and children shopping for back to school, I got nostalgic and choked up. I wanted to have my two little boys in tow.
When they would arrive home with their lists, I'd grab the car keys and off we went.
So much to choose from. Did they have that much twenty years ago?
The answer is still "no" Adam. You may not have a box of 64 crayons. Your teacher says it takes too long to decide on a color with a box that size.
Fresh notebooks to be filled with math, English and creative stories.
Um, I think a bookbag from L. L. Bean is probably a better choice. Today, I'd just let the two of you chose what you wanted.
Shaun White outfits? Thankfully skate boarding did not become a big part of your growing up!!
What do you think of plaid?
These shorts are a bit more understated.
Stefan, I know you'd prefer Vans. Do they still make them?
