Back to School Pencil Cookies

With kids and teachers heading back to school today in my area, I thought I’d share these fun and easy Back to School Pencil Cookies.

Summer Came and Went

I seem to say this every year, and I’m not sure if it’s an age thing but this summer flew by, really flew. We were busy enough, but I’m the type of person that looks back on summer and thinks, “Why didn’t I do that..” and “Why didn’t I go there…” My hubby takes his vacation (all 6 weeks) in the months of September and October. With his work anniversary date in November, his vacation days start over again, so we look forward to fall more than summer.

How did I spend my summer?

I put together a few collages that highlight some of the ways I spent my summer. Teachers are ready to get back into the classroom, kids are ready to get back to school and parents are all too ready to get their kids back into school!! I guess maybe summers are meant to fly by after all. It’s always good to get back into a routine and get some structure back into our lives. Looking for a fun recipe to make for your new teacher?  Easy Apple Cupcakes might be the answer.
