VTT - SCHOOL DAYS

It's not my norm to show graphics, but with school being so close now, and being in my thoughts 24/7, I thought I'd share some old-fashioned type pics that I've collected over the years! Feel free to use them!
This is a Currier & Ives print that I have framed for our home school.

You did a gteat job of getting all this together. I loved your post. Happy VTT, have a lovely weekend.

Fun post! And I have a bell just like the one you pictured. I think I shared it on a VTT post before. Or was it a Three or More post. Anyway I did picture it on my main blog one day.

Now that I no longer work for the school district and have grown kids, I am kind of out of the loop regarding the school schedule. Some schools around here have started. Probably most of them. Today was the first day for many of them.

Happy VTT!

I love the ABC with the kids hanging on, also your Red kitchen towels are so cheery.
School starts next week for my Grand-Daughter, so I will take her out for a little extra school shopping.
Take care and enjoy your day.

What wonderful school images!
I love this, and love the Addams quote at the end. She was surely right.

School here is MORE than "close" - - - today finishes my first day back! We went a week and a half later than the county schools, so they've been in a LONG time already.

Bertie said...

We don't start school here until after Labor Day. Cutest post!! Love all the graphics!

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. I'll be back.
