I was sitting here thinking about old school lunchboxes for some odd reason. Remember the metal Thermos ones with all the choices you could pick out every year? Talk about pop culture. I used to have a Peanuts one for 1st and 2nd grade, and an NFL helmet one (apparently my folks attempt to butch me up in 3rd grade even though at the time I HATED football - lol). I remember the ones that looked like yellow school buses, and the soft sided black ones that had Barbie on them, and the WDW one that was white with some characters on it and some rides.
Other back to school memories for me were buying new Crayola Crayons every year, and having Elmers School Glue too. New #2 pencils and Bic Banana pens and lined paper and Pee Chee folders and a see through plastic holder thingy you clipped into your binder that held your pens and glue and such. New school uniforms every year (Catholic school thing), and picture day where you got to wear free dress to school and brought your hairbrush to make sure you had a nice coif, and they always made you look at Mickey Mouse's head when you had your picture taken. Half days in September when it was so hot outside and no air conditioning in the classrooms (those were great!).
Even though I always HATED going back to school and loathed September, I look back with so many fond memories.
What about your back to school memories?
