Give Me Five Monday

Give Me 5 Monday logo

It’s time for Give Me Five Monday. Hostess Becca gives us this prompt today:

Give Me Five back to school memories.

Here are my five memories:

  • I enjoyed getting new clothes for the school year.
  • Even better was getting pens, pencils, paper and other such supplies.
  • I enjoyed seeing friends who I hadn’t seen over the summer.
  • I loved the smell of fresh text books.
  • Though I enjoyed the time for my own projects during the summer, I enjoyed the structure and time-squeeze of the school year more.

Hostess Becca says this about the meme:

The ‘Give Me Five’ Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here’s how it works. Each week, I will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn’t have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.

    Hi Joyce! Here’s my 5…we have a lot of the same ones.
    1. New school supplies in my new bookbag (didn’t have a backpack in the 60’s).
    2. New school clothes – usually bought at Penneys via the catalog. I was oldest, so didn’t have hand-me-downs (lucky me).
    3. Walking to school the first day and seeing friends, new teachers, and starting new adventures.
    4. Walking with my sister to school in Baton Rouge and eating blackberries off the bushes along the way. One house had a BIG bush!
    5. Deciding which boy I would have a crush on that year..he usually became apparent to me during the first few days. He would never know I liked him, and the feeling usually wasn’t mutual, but it was fun dreaming!
