John's Monday Assignment

Your Monday Photo Shoot: It's back to school season. Show us a picture of something that represents "Back to School" to you. Kids on their way to school, a stack of new text books, school supplies, parents leaping for joy... oh, wait, maybe not that last one.

Don't be afraid to reach back into the archives for this one; if you've got a great "back to school" photo from 1975, bring it on. I could show you a picture from my own back to school days -- the one from second grade, when I was dressed in pink denim from head to toe -- but no. No.

Take or scan the photos, upload them into your blog or journal, and come back here to leave a link. And welcome back to another year of school!

I have two memories one is of my little sister Sherry, I would hug her goodbye in the mornings, and when I got off the school bus I had a little dirt road to where our trailer was.  She was little and would always meet me half way, and we would run and I would hug her and swing her around.  She met me day after day, she was probably only like 3,  sometimes I would run past her instead of grabbing her and swinging her around, she would fall on her butt and cry until I came back and picked her up.  This was taken on the front steps at that age.  :)  My zipper is wide open, I didn't notice that when I just posted it, but thanks to good ole D at

I'm laughing.  I do hope mama fixed that before school.

My land of the lost lunch box, would be one thing that I always remember starting school, My mom would pack it each day with love and a peanut butter sandwich or bologna and cheese.  Always something good.

What a sweet picture, my daughter Jools directed me to your website.  I know you've seen her picture on my Journal.  I don't have a picture of myself going off to school, so I had to pick on Julie.  As soon as I find the one of her brother going to school, I plan on posting that, too.
