See You In September!

See you in September.
See you when the summer’s through!

That song was an oldie but a goodie. The lyrics are actually written from the perspective of a teenager saying good-bye to his girlfriend before they part ways in June for summer vacation but the advertising industry has focused on those two specific lines and it has been used many times over the years in back-to-school advertisements.

Speaking of oldies but goodies, my mom was a teacher until her retirement and for her, these days in August were the ones when she started to prepare herself (and her kids) for the upcoming school year. She began to put things aside for her classroom, her school day planner began to fill up and my sister and I would need to try on all of our fall clothes to see if a shopping trip to London was required.

Next week, our teachers will start to trickle into the schools and turn cold, empty walls and bare bulletin boards into a warm “home” for their students to start the school year. The MT Room has seen a number of Moms like mine in the past week…ones who have started checking if the gym clothes and blazer still fit and want to avoid the last-minute rush there or at InSchoolwear.

There is still a bit of summertime left, so in between your back-to-school shopping trips, get outside and enjoy the summer while the weather stays warm!

Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long, farewell
