When I was a kid on the eve of back to school my mother hung my book bag on the foot of my bed and in the morning there were little wrapped gift inside. A Hello Kitty eraser, a set of mini highlighters, etc. Each year her additions to my school supplies delighted me. Every time I took my purple trapper keeper out of my desk I knew I was loved.
I have turned the tradition into a week long count down with little gifts every morning. Today my oldest son went to visit his first grade classroom. We met his teacher, loaded his supplies into his desk, handed in his summer reading log and came home to hang up the backpacks.
