Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies

On the Menu Today~
Old-fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies

When my kids were in grade school,
I would make them peanut butter cookies...
In honor of their first day back to school.

After school....
In the back door they ran....
In their new school clothes...
Now wrinkled and rumpled....
With the smell of school still lingering on them....
Their feet sore from the blisters their new shoes gave them.....
Talking non-stop about their first day back to school.

Dropping their backpacks to the floor with a thump....
Down the hall they ran to their bed rooms....
Returning seconds later...
Back in shorts and flip flops.....
Asking to go to a friends house.

Grabbing a handful of peanut butter cookies....
Running back out the door.....
I could hear them yell.....
As they hopped on their bikes..
"Thanks Mom"....
And down the street they went...
Not yet ready to let go of summer......
Peanut Butter Cookies...
In honor of those wonderful school days..
Gone by.
